Carl Robert Glascock, 92, native of Plainfield, Indiana passed into his heavenly home on Monday, June 29, 2020. He was a resident of Ringgold, Georgia and a member of Calvary Baptist Church in Red Bank. Mr. Glascock served his country in the U.S. Navy during World War II and the U.S. Marine Corps where he fought in the Korean War and was awarded the Purple Heart. A GM retiree, he drove a school bus for Hamilton County. Mr. Glascock, PeePaw to his great grandchildren, had a passion for reaching lost souls with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Under the persistent witness of Paul High, a co-worker, Carl Glascock was saved by the grace of God at the age of 32. After his conversion, Mr. Glascock was relentless in his pursuit to share the good news with everyone he came into contact. He handed out gospel tracts directly to people, as well as slipping them into public telephone booths and the pockets of clothing hanging on racks at department stores. He consistently spent his evenings or Saturday afternoons knocking on the doors of complete strangers, sharing the Light that so dramatically changed Him. For many years, he drove the church bus with a box of candy in the front seat, bringing young people to learn about Jesus. He never completed a conversation with anyone without first asking them about their eternal condition.
He is survived by his wife Deloris, his son DeWayne, two granddaughter, five great grandchildren and sister, Fritzi Hewson.
