Obituary of Robert W. Glancy

Robert W. Glancy, 88, formerly of Mullen Drive, Auburn, passed away peacefully on Aug. 25, 2016 surrounded by his loving family in Lancaster, Pa. A native of Auburn, Robert, born the son of Frank and Margaret Glancy came into this world in Montezuma, N.Y. on Aug. 31, 1927. He served in the U.S. Navy for eight years and was honorably discharged in 1954. Having learned his trade in the U.S. Navy, Robert retired as a Graphics Artist from Syracuse Lithography. Being the quintessential family man, family always came first and foremost with Robert. Many fond memories were created around the family dining room table, playing cards, games, and just passing time laughing and storytelling. Robert, the avid skier, was one of the founding members of the Finger Lakes Ski Club and could usually be found raising a glass to fresh powder on the slopes. Preceded in death by his loving and gregarious wife, Patricia O’Connor Glancy. Robert leaves many family and friends behind to join his loving wife; four children, Cynthia Mumma and husband, James, of Lancaster, Pa., Terrance Glancy and Sherri, of Auburn, Shawn Bayles, of Auburn, and Michael Glancy and wife, Michele, of Charlotte, N.C.; five grandchildren, Corynn Hemmings, Justin Bayles, Carson Neagle, Caitlin Mumma, and Iain Glancy; four great-grandchildren, Matthew and Noah Hemmings, Madelyn and Evelyn Bayles grandchildren the same. Preceded in death are his siblings, Peg Corbin, Bernie Lee, and John Glancy. Robert and his family thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers and ask that you remember him and celebrate his life.
