Michael Glasgow

Michael Glasgow, age 69, passed away Wednesday, September 1, 2021, with his loving wife by his side at their home in Columbia, Tennessee.

Michael was born July 19, 1952, in Rutherford County, TN to the late Herbert Paul Manire and Mary Jane Hartley Manire.

Mike was a mixture of a Hell’s Angel and a barefooted Hippie. He was rough on the outside and soft on the inside. Mike always had a knack for fixing things and could repair just about anything. Naturally, he worked his entire life as a mechanic. He was also quite the outdoorsman, he always enjoyed being in nature while fishing and hunting. On the other side Mike was an artistic guy, would spend time creating pictures on his computer or crafting various projects. But his greatest joy was sharing all of these things with his children and grandchildren. He was “The Babysitter.” After 48 years of marriage to the love of his life Donna Glasgow they built a large family full of love. Mike also loved to give nicknames, he couldn’t help himself, everyone had to have a nickname. The family will treasure all of the time spent and knowledge that Mike passed down throughout his life. He is deeply loved and will be dearly missed.

Mike is survived by his wife Donna Erwin Glasgow; children: Kimberly (Anthony) DeBlasio, Timothy “Timmy” Wayne Glasgow, Michael (Elizabeth) Wayne Glasgow, Jr., Mary “Beth” Elizabeth Glasgow; grandchildren: Kayla Calderon, Ethan Glasgow, Morgan Glasgow, Timothy Glasgow, Hunter Glasgow, Dakota Glasgow, Isabelle Glasgow, Emma Glasgow, Brandon DeBlasio, Jacob DeBlasio, Gabriela Maria Glasgow, Abigail Christine Glasgow, Lilliana Nicole Glasgow, Michael Alexander Glasgow, Daniela Nicol Glasgow, and Amelia Raya Marie Glasgow; great-grandchild: Jayden Calderon; and soon to be great-grandchild: Olivia Calderon; siblings: Marsha (Ricky) Erwin and Johnny (Lisa) Paul Manire.
