Ronald Glab Sr., 79, of Riverside, died on May 7, 2018.

Mr. Glab served with the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War and was retired from a career as a watch and clock repairman. 

He loved his son and family first and foremost, but Christmas was a close second. Decorations filled his home year-round, and he was so proud of his collections and displays. He enjoyed a good drink and being with those he loved. He was a kind and good soul who was overly generous to all he met. 

Mr. Glab was the husband for 52 years of the late Annette (nee Massafaro); the father and dedicated caregiver to his beloved son, Ronald Joseph Jr.; the brother of the late Evelyn A. (the late Donald) Swanson, late Stanley (the late Evelyn) Glab, late Eleanor (the late Eugene) Mroz, late Jeanette (the late Bernie) Fliss, late Ted (the late Jeannette) Glab, and the late Henry Glab; the brother-in-law of Kathy (Tom) Vana; and the uncle to many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews. 

A funeral Mass was celebrated May 12 at St. Mary Church in Riverside, with interment at Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Hillside. 

The family appreciates memorials to Community Support Services, 9021 Ogden Ave., Brookfield, 60513, who’ve been instrumental in Ronnie’s care and will continue to provide the quality of life his parents’ always wanted for him. 

Ivins/Moravecek Funeral Home, Riverside, handled arrangements.
