Marvin Monel Glasgow


Marvin Monel Glasgow, 83, of Willow Park, passed away on May 6, 2024.

Marvin was born July 25, 1940 to parents Willie Andrew and Mary Ethel Glasgow in Tyler, Texas. After graduation, he served four years in the U.S. Navy as an Aviation Mechanic until June 1963. Throughout the following years, he worked for NCR, General Dynamics, and Lockheed Martin. Upon retirement, Marvin served the City of Willow Park as Chair for the Planning & Zoning committee, then as a City Councilman before becoming mayor for two terms.

Amongst his many talents and passions, Marvin was a lifelong amateur archaeologist who loved hunting for arrowheads which eventually led to a passionate hobby of knapping. He was an active member and officer in various archeology societies including the Texas Archeological Society, Tarrant County Archeological Society and the Doss Heritage Museum & Culture Center. Marvin was fond of helping Boy Scouts earn their archeological badges and ensuring the younger generation learned about local history.

Marvin was generous, kind and above all, a good friend to anyone who needed him. He loved the Lord and his family deeply. He will be missed greatly by his family, friends and community.

He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Charles. He was previously married to Jenna and later Rebecca (Becky), both of which have preceded him in death.

He is survived by his loving wife, Dina; daughter, Cynthia Lynn Kasuske and son-in-law, Douglas Allen Kasuske; son, Keith Everett Glasgow and daughter-in-law, Nisha Glasgow; grand-daughter Courtney Burdick and husband Paul Burdick; grand-daughter Melissa Priyanka Glasgow, grand-son Shane Vinay Glasgow and brother David Glasgow.

The Memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 18, at Cross Timbers Baptist Church, 601 Ranch House Road in Willow Park followed by a Celebration of Life in the fellowship hall.

Should friends desire, donations can be made to the "Benevolence Fund" at Cross Timbers Baptist Church.
