Obituary for Michael J. Glaze

Michael Joseph Glaze, 62, of Lexington, Ohio passed away January 15, 2019 at Ohio Health Mansfield.

Mike was born in Mansfield to Donald and Catherine (Stack) Glaze. Mike is a graduate of St. Peter’s Catholic High School. Michael was also a member of the United States Air Force and retired from GM after 30 years with the company.

Mike was a joy to be around, always ready with a good joke or story to tell. He had a big heart and an engaging laugh. Mike’s loving heart was shown through his generosity and open home policy, if you needed a place to lay your head, Mike would make space in his home. Mike shared his love for golf with his family, teaching both his children and grand-children the game. He also had an extensive collection of music, predominantly Blues, which he enjoyed greatly. Mike enjoyed travelling by just jumping into the vehicle and making a great vacation out of it. Mike also liked a good stiff drink, and after exploring the Bourbon trail, his appreciation for bourbon was enhanced. His greatest joy, though, was spending time with his family. His grandchildren brought him the most joy. He was endlessly proud of them, and loved them more than words can describe.

Michael was preceded in death by his parents, brother Donald Glaze, brother-in-laws Seccondo (Red) Simmons, and Lloyd (Bud) Maxey. Michael was also preceded in death by a daughter, Jessica Glaze, and a grand-daughter, Ashley Glaze.

Survivors include Mary Maxey of Mansfield, Margaret (Peg) Loughman of Huron, and Maureen Simmons of Mansfield; children Greg (Amanda) Glaze of Eighty Four, PA, Jamie Glaze of Lexington, and Michelle (James Ramey) Glaze of Lexington. Michael’s favorite people are the people that called him “Poppy”; Taylor and Kyleigh Glaze, and Dakota Ramey. He will also always hold a special place in Katie Glaze (Reilly)'s heart.

Remember, raise a glass to Mike! Life is a party and needs to be celebrated!

Friends may call at Herlihy-Chambers Funeral Home, 173 Park Avenue West, on Sunday from 2-5pm. A funeral mass will be celebrated at 10am Monday at St. Peter’s Catholic Church with Fr. Austin Ammanniti officiating. Burial will take place on Tuesday at 11:30am at Mansfield Catholic Cemetery.
