Tarleton State dedicates Saturday’s football game to the late Texas Senator Bob Glasgow


STEPHENVILLE — Bob Glasgow, a distinguished former Texas Senator and Tarleton State alumnus, passed away early Friday morning. In honor of him and his amazing life achievements, Tarleton State has dedicated Saturday’s Family Weekend football game to Glasgow.

“This is a tremendous loss for the Stephenville community, Tarleton State University and the state of Texas,” Tarleton’s Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Lonn Reisman said. “Senator Bob Glasgow was a man of integrity who set the example of loyalty and how to treat people fairly. He helped make this world a better place.

“My prayers are with the entire Glasgow family,” Reisman added. “We will miss Bob dearly.”

Glasgow, a Stephenville, Texas, native, graduated from Tarleton State College in 1967 where he served as class president and student body president. He went on to serve as the administrative assistant to Texas Governor Preston Smith for two years, was the District Attorney for the 29th Judicial District (which served Erath, Hood and Palo Pinto counties) for eight years, then was a member of the Texas Senate serving the 22nd District of Texas from 1981 to 1993 (67th – 72nd Legislature).

In 1987, Glasgow was named a Distinguished Alumnus at Tarleton State University.

Glasgow was a board member of the Texan Club, serving Tarleton Athletics programs and student-athletes since it was established 30 years ago.

As part of Tarleton’s game dedication to Glasgow on Saturday, they will hold a moment of silence in his memory before the game.
