Robert L. Glass was born in Reno, Nev., in 1929 and spent the last years of his life here in Moab with his son. In between that, he was a U.S. Marine in Guam and Japan, a student in Minneapolis, Minn., a high school science teacher in Van Nuys, Calif., and a key player in a family, which in the 1970s rebelled and immigrated to the island villages of Alert Bay and Sointula, north of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

He always loved a good party, and if he wasn’t too busy launching a hot air balloon, he would probably be playing his double bass or ukulele.

He passed away peacefully in the wee hours of Sunday morning, Nov. 17, at Moab Regional Hospital.

A musical jam in his honor will be held at his house in Alert Bay. B.C., at the usual time on Saturday evening, Nov. 23.

He was survived by his son, Hugh; his daughter, Kari; and his grandson, Zephyr.
