Robert J. Glumac, 69, of Baden, entered into the presence of God Sunday evening, July 14, 2019. Bob was preceded in death by his father and mother, Nikolai & Margaret (Hicks) Glumac. Bob served with honor in the United States Marine Corps. from 1969 – 1972.
To the end, Bob projected both a simple humility with no false pretenses, he was honest. At the same time, he never lost his strong, stubborn “Jarhead” mentality. Semper Fi. Shortly after his military service, Bob committed his life the Savior, Jesus Christ. Bob raised his family in the Ambridge Christian & Missionary Alliance Church, spending the last twenty years of his journey of faith at New Brighton Christian Assembly.
Bob loved his sons, Shawn and Michael, and was always quick to boast about them to anyone who would listen. His sons are proud of him. The true joy of his life, however, cannot be questioned! Bob adored his four beautiful granddaughters; Abigail, Selah, Hadassah and Jordyn. He attended more volleyball and softball games, dance recitals and parties than can be counted…always quick to hand his four treasures a $5 bill each and every time he saw them.
Bob now awaits the eternal reunion with his beloved, surviving wife of 47 years, Cathy, for whom he spent his final years caring for and serving with great love and strength. Bob spent his last energies making certain that all (and we mean all) the details of life were in order so that Cathy would continue to be well-cared for in the years to come. Bob even “warshed” one last load of laundry before he passed. His sons are proud of him. Shawn (Angela) and Mike (Candace) look forward with the blessed hope to both honoring their father’s name on this side of Heaven and seeing him again face-to-face in Glory to continue their never-ending debates (or arguments, depending on your definition) over all things, both the profound and meaningless topics of life.
He is also survived by his best friend and brother, Michael E. Glumac (Janet) and his dear nieces Holly and Hope along with his little buddy, Caden. Bob and his “bro” enjoyed a beginning-to-end life of love and family fun; playing baseball together as kids, “owning” the town of Baden with their friends, stirring up harmless mischief, family vacations to Peck’s Cottages, golfing and growing old together. Bob and Mike were brothers in the flesh and in the Spirit of God.
