   George Raymond Glass, age 88 of Sac City, IA, passed away on Saturday, January 6, 2024. He was born on August 15, 1935, to parents Raymond and Mildred (Stedman) Glass at their homestead just southwest of Sac City. He grew up attending the United Methodist Church in Sac City where he was both baptized and confirmed. George graduated from Sac City High School with the class of 1953. After graduating, he attended Iowa State University.
   On August 8, 1954, at the age of eighteen, George married the love of his life, Bonnie Pearl Rodgers, at the United Methodist Church in Sac City. This union was blessed with four children, Raymond, Gregory, Jill, and Jodi. Together they raised their family on the family farm.
   George was a third-generation farmer. He farmed the land that he loved but also raised livestock including hogs, cattle, and many chickens. He loved being outdoors whether it be for work or play. When he wasn’t working, he could be found on the golf course or working in the yard. He was a long-time member of Sac Country Club and loved to fish. He was a founding member of “The Crappers” and organized epic fishing excursions to Canada with his friends and sons every year.
   In the mid-eighties, during the farm crisis, George became a mediator. He was perfect for this position as he was able to keep calm and optimistic. He held this position for many years leading mediations for farmers, school boards and postal workers.
   George and Bonnie were married over sixty-nine years. They traveled to Arizona, California, and Wisconsin to visit family and took a very memorable trip to China with their son Greg. They also loved dancing and frequented many area ballrooms back in the day. Cobblestone in Storm Lake was one of their favorite venues.
   George had many talents which included singing and performing. For years, he sang at weddings and funerals and was a member of the Methodist Church choir. He was in nearly every play and musical put on by Gordon Lamb in Sac City. Performing filled him with joy.
   The Sac City community was very important to George. He made it a point to be very involved with the community throughout his life. He, his good friend Duane Fort, and many others were certainly pillars of the community. He served on the Sac City School Board, was President of the Sac City Country Club, and was a trustee of the United Methodist Church. He was a well-respected individual by, not only his family, but also the community he served so diligently.
   He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him including his beloved wife, Bonnie Glass of Sac City, IA; his sister, Pauline Lauterbach; his children, Raymond Glass, Greg Glass, Jill Broughton and Jodi Manning, 10 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.
