Robert (“Bob”) Glass

Robert (“Bob”) Glass, passed away on Sunday, April 16, 2023 in League City, Texas at the age of 64.  Born on February 25, 1959 in Houston, Texas to Charles Ries Glass and Mary Frances Sweeney Glass.

Bob’s interests were sailing, surfing, anything around the beach or water, photography, cars, drumming, and music in general. He loved sharing his knowledge with family and friends alike. Bob was a people person, never met a stranger. He never failed to make anyone laugh with his witty sense of humor or bring a smile to your face with his often silly antics. He had a tremendous love for his family!

Bob was preceded in death by his parents Charles (“Ries”) and Mary Glass.

He is survived by his wife Dana Glass; his daughter Whitney Mendenhall and her husband Lauren; his sons, Robert, Ethan, and Johnathan Glass; his siblings Susan Studebaker-Mozara (Steve), Mary Myers (Mickey), Chuck Glass, Liz Rocamontes (Rick); his grandchildren Corwyn, and Ævum Mendenhall; and his many nieces and nephews.

The Family will receive friends on Friday, April 21, 2023 at 2:00pm with a Celebration of Life Service at 3:00pm at Crowder Funeral Home, 1645 East Main, League City, Texas 77573

  7. RIP B you will be missed. Been years since I had seen you but you were always on my mind and I always considered you one of my closest friends. My condolences to the family. I can believe you are not with us its a bit surreal considering I have known you for 25-plus years and remember when you and Dana first met.

  8. I was introduced to Bob at the beach and just thought he was such a standup guy . He always had his boys with him and you could tell they all loved surfing so much. I will miss seeing him and pray to God to help his family through this very hard time. My condolences to all his friends and family.

  9. Prayers for Dana, Ethan, Robert, and Jonathan… as you say your goodbyes to your wonderful husband and father, remember all the good times and blessings you shared over these past many years. You built a loving family together that will carry on his wonderful spirit and personality. I wish I had known Bob better. He seemed to be a great husband to you, Dana, and awesome dad too. <3. May you feel the love of God as He carries you through this time of grief and sorrow. He is now at peace, and enjoying time with his Heavenly Father face to face! There is no better place to be than in the arms of our Father God and Jesus, His son! Much love and comfort is being sent to you from me. I love you all and feel so much for you.

  10. One of the first people I met when I came to Houston and one of the best. Over the years our path’s diverged but whenever we did speak it was like time had stopped. We threatened to get together a few times, but family and work always took precedence but it was wonderful knowing he was there for the moment when we did speak. So many memories of the past came flowing up and, through them, I can still hear the joyous laughter he brought to each encounter. I can’t count the days since the last time we talked, but I can count the years I called him a friend. Go in Peace Bob. Rest easy old friend.

  16. I met Bob over 20yrs ago and he is the reason I decided to move to Houston in the first place.
    He introduced me to several businesses contacts and from that I was able to get my footing in a new territory.
    Had it not been for his kindness and altruism, I never would have made it out here. I think of him often and with great fondness.
    I am in the area for a piece on NASA and the rocket Elon launched a couple of days ago. I figured while I was in the neighborhood I would call up my old friend and see if he would like to join my husband and I for dinner this weekend. It was then that I heard the devastating news.
    I’d like to reach out to Dana and the Glass family and offer anything I can do to help while I’m in town. I know it’s been years since we last spoke, but I assure you that you have always held a special place in my heart and I know that you’re going to say everything is fine, because you are strong and always have things under control (it’s your super power) but just incase you need ANYTHING at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me even if you just want to NOT talk to somebody, but don’t want to be alone right now. I’ve got you. It’s the least I can do. I feel like I owe Bob so much and I don’t think he ever knew how his kindness affected my life and molded my future.

    Bob was such a giving and caring person who always had a smile and a kind word to offer. I feel heartbroken that I did not reach out sooner and get to spend time with my friend before it was too late.
    I do not know what Heaven holds for us, but I know that whatever it is Bob’s got his camera in hand taking amazing shots of it. So when it’s our time and we get there, he’s going to have some pretty good stories and lots of photos to share as he tells us where the best spots to be or at. If there’s a VIP list, Bob’s already on it and has a seat waiting for us.
    I love you Bob and I appreciate you more than you’ll ever know.

  17. I remember Bobby well. We were friends in high school. I followed him on Facebook. He was a good father, an active surfer. It’s been years since we saw one another. This comes as a great shock. He will be missed .
