Monroe, NC – Bill Glasheen of Monroe, NC, entered God’s Kingdom on December 10, 2012 following a long illness. A celebration of Bill’s life will take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, January 12, 2013 at St. Matthew Catholic Church Chapel, 8015 Ballantyne Commons Parkway, Charlotte, 28277. Arrangements are in the care

of Heritage Funeral and Cremation Services. Bill was born May 22, 1938 to Dennis Cornelius and Irene Kelly Glasheen of Cohoes, NY. He was the brother of Mary Rose Kelly, Denise Bills and Dennis Glasheen. In 1964, he married Kathryn Theresa Kelly and together they raised two daughters, Susan and Kathy. Bill worked for over 30 years at Allegheny Ludlum/ AL-Tech Steel and then retired to North Carolina to play golf year-round. In retirement, Bill enjoyed working part-time at Carmel Country Club. Bill was a kind and generous man and truly never met a stranger. In his later years, Bill dealt with a variety of health problems, but never let those diminish his love of life and enjoyment of his loved ones. Bill is survived by his loving wife and daughters, in

addition to his extended family and a host of friends. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation

to the John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics/University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, PO Box 019132, Miami, FL 22101 or a charity of one’s choice. A special thank you to the staff of Kindred Nursing and Rehabilitation Center of Monroe for their compassionate care for Bill. On-line condolences may be left to
