It is with great sorrow that I reach out to you. As you may have heard, Rex Glasgow passed away unexpectedly last week. For countless people nationwide and many members of North Central Region, Rex will be remembered as a dear friend and mentor. Since the tragic news of his passing reached me on Friday night, I have heard from hundreds of people. There is much speculation regarding the circumstances of his passing. Rex was a very private person and we should not speculate. Instead, let us pause in our activities to pay tribute to a devoted and highly esteemed colleague. Whether you met Rex when he was Lieutenant Glasgow and serving as Cedar Rapids Squadron Commander, Colonel Glasgow during his service as Iowa Wing or North Central Region Commander, Beret One when leading at National Blue Beret, or Brigadier General Glasgow when he served as National Vice Commander; his boundless energy and unparalleled dedication to CAP inspired those with whom he worked. Regardless of how your path crossed his, everyone who knew Rex would agree that he had a passion for service and people. Rex had an infectious smile and an uncommon inner grace. He will be deeply missed by those whose lives he touched.
A notice will soon appear on the Murdoch Funeral Home site at http://www.murdochfuneralhome.com/. A full obituary will appear on Sunday, December 18th, in the local newspaper and on the Murdoch website. Members who would like to speak with someone about their grief may contact
Lt Col Don Mikitta, the North Central Region Chaplain at firstname.lastname@example.org . For those who would like to share photos and fond memories, there is a Facebook group called Remembering Rex Glasgow.
Yours in Sorrow,
