Harold Glasscock Obituary, Death- We are devastated to share the news of the death of Harold Glasscock, a devoted family man and dear friend, who was killed in an automobile crash on Tuesday morning in Lake County. Age-wise, he was 72. As a lifelong resident of Vernon Township, Harold left an indelible mark on the hearts of many people with his genuine compassion and strong sense of duty. He was born in 1951 and spent his childhood in a close-knit neighborhood, where he formed the beliefs that would shape his entire life.
Tragically, lives were altered irrevocably on that Tuesday morning at 9:15 a.m., at the intersection of Russell Road and Park Lane.
