(1942 - 2017)


A legendary man gone, but not forgotten. 

James Howard Glaub, 74, of Kansas City, MO, left with the "Spirit in the Sky" peacefully surrounded by his family on Friday,  September 15, 2017. He was born December 12, 1942 in Cedarburg, WI.

Father, Brother, Son, Schmoozer, Biker, Painter, Fighter, Fixer, Breaker, Lover, Party Monster, Storyteller, Smoker, Gentleman, Prankster. A real life out-of-a-movie, you-can't-write-this, larger-than-life character who loved life. He had an incredible ability to tell a story with a twinkle in his eye that left you rolling on the floor or rolling your eyes, often both. He's with his wife, Janice K. Glaub right now having a smoke and a laugh, and she's giving him hell, we’re sure.

He is survived by his three children, Sally Patafio, Jamie Glaub (Jimmy Kelley), Jim Glaub (Dylan Parker), by his grandchildren, Michelle, Stephanie, Christina, Alyssa, Stephanie, Jared; great grandchildren, Jayce, Madison, Phoenix, Bowie; He was preceded in death by his wife, Janice K. Glaub, his mother and father Lois and Howard Glaub, and his sister, Susan Clark.
