Bennie was born to the late Frankie and Fannie Mae Morris Glass on April 2, 1936 in Houston County, Alabama. He believed that hard work was his top priority. Bennie worked forty-two years with Smith’s Incorporated over seeing as job superintendent many major projects throughout the wiregrass such as Sony, Flowers Hospital, Southeast Health, Columbia Yeast Plant, and Northview High School, along with many others. He enjoyed many hobbies including fishing, gardening, quail hunting with his bird dogs, and crafting his famous grills. On Saturdays in the fall, he would root on his beloved Alabama Crimson Tide, “Roll Tide”. The spare time that was left, he would get lost in his music as he picked his guitar. Bennie loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and was a faithful member of Bluff Springs Baptist Church for many years. He was a loving husband to his wife of sixty-two years, Mary Glass, along with being a loving father, grandfather, great grandfather, and brother. He will be dearly missed by all who loved and knew him.
Bennie was preceded in death by his parents.
Left to cherish his memories are his wife; a son, Darrell Glass (Donna); two daughters, Mary Ann Page (Scott), and Becca Raybon; one brother, Reuben Glass (June); six grandchildren, Cassey Glass (Christy), Emily Press (Josh), Alayna Page, Dara Glass, Tanner Raybon, and Jayden Raybon; three great grandchildren, Camden, Chase, and Callie; special cousins; along with numerous nieces, nephews; and many friends.
The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the staff of Enhabit Hospice for their tremendous love and care they gave to Bennie and the whole family during this difficult time.
