    Sam N. Glass, age 92, Atlanta, died January 18. 2018. Sam was born in Milledgeville, Georgia, to Bessie and Benjamin Glass on June 18, 1925. The family moved to Atlanta when Sam was age 7, where he attended elementary school and Boys High and continued on to Georgia Tech. His education was interrupted by a stint in the Army serving Stateside. He went on to graduate with an Electrical Engineering Degree. Shortly thereafter, he married the "love of his life", Tillie Franco. Sam and Tillie raised their 3 children in Atlanta. Sam spent 36 years working as an Aeronautical Engineer at Lockheed and was a successful Nutone dealer here in the greater Atlanta area. He could fix anything and was always tinkering with something. If our TVs didn't work or a lamp shorted out, you took it to Sam...everybody did. His garage was full of people's stuff that he was fixing and they didn't seem to mind waiting for it. That's just how it was back then. Sam always had a smile on his face and "whistled while he worked". Despite their busy life and raising 3 children, Sam and Tillie always found time for "Wednesday Night Date Night". Sam's family was always most important to him. In his earlier years, Sam enjoyed traveling, swimming, dancing, bowling, playing cards, playing tennis, getting together with family and friends, being involved in his children's activities, and attending baseball and football games. This warm and loving gentle-man is survived by his wife of 70 years, Tillie; children: Barbara (Tommy), Susan (Bruce), and Frank (Jillian), grandchildren: Wessley, Kayla, Chelsea, Arielle, and Colette, and great granddaughter, Alice, and several nieces and nephews. The Glass family would like to thank Sam's caregivers, Carrie, Comar, Lou, Michael and Pat. The family also greatly appreciates the care and support provided by Bridgeway Hospice. Sign online guest book at In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Congregation Or VeShalom, Alzheimer's Association, or the charity of one's choice. A graveside service will be held Monday, January 22, 2018 at 12:00 pm at Arlington Memorial Park with Rabbi Hayyim Kassorla officiating.

    I worked with Sam in Flight Test department back in the 1980s. Always a nice person, and capable. Strange but I was thinking about him just a few weeks ago. We will all miss him.

    I worked with Sam at Lockheed. He was a great engineer and a good friend. We worked on several projects together, and he was good at what he did. He set the standard for EMI investigations while he was in Engineering Flight Test.

    Your Dad was a man of many talents and kindnesses. Even when our social climbing poodle would howl outside your windows for his lady love, your Dad kept a great sense of humor. May his memory always be with you.

  • Linda and Bill Frank

    Both of us have so many stories to share about Sammy. He was a sweet, funny, and compassionate man. Both of our families adored him! He was around from the time I was little (a traveling tv man way before it was fashionable)! And he rescued Bill when he was a little boy... first on a runaway pony at the pony rides and next when he fell in the swimming pool! Our families would vacation at Callaway together and he was so much fun. He had such a big heart and was such a loyal friend. Our families will never forget him. Love, Linda and Bill Frank
