Lemuele Ernest Glass was born October 8, 1953, in Colquitt, the son of Leroy and Willie Mae Gordon Glass. Buddy was a painter by trade and Pentecostal by faith. He married Dorcy Jean Norris in 2004 and they made their home in Bainbridge.

Buddy had a spirit of adventure that he passed along to his family. He enjoyed making memories doing simple things, like fishing, but was always on “ready” if something better came up. He spent his weekends cheering on his beloved football teams, the Georgia Bulldogs and the Atlanta Falcons.

Survivors include his wife of 15 years, Dorcy Glass; his children, Faye Harrison of Donalsonville, Ga,, Travis Glass of Florida, Kimberly Glass of Atmore, Ala., Kevin Key of Bainbridge, and Karla Mullis of Tallahassee, Fla.; his siblings, Betty Ann Bush of Colquitt, and Donna & Allen Jones of Donalsonville; and his fifteen grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Buddy was preceded in death by his parents.
