Robert "Bob" Glasgow, 38, Minot, died Monday, May 28, 2012, from injuries sustained in a work-related incident.

Robert James Glasgow was born on May 28, 1974, in Minot, a son of Robert David and Susan (Brandt) Glasgow. He was raised and educated in Minot, graduating from Minot High School in 1993. Following his graduation, he attended Ridgewater College, where he graduated as an insurance claim adjuster.

Robert was once married to Michelle Ogren. Their son Jacob was born on Nov. 30, 1999.

He worked as an insurance adjustor for five years. Then Robert worked in construction at Minot Air Force Base as a painter. He also was employed by Steam Brothers of Minot. He then began a career with the Canadian Pacific Railroad working track maintenance. Robert loved to work hard, which eventually landed him in his current position, conductor. He made many friends along the way.

Robert met the love of his life, Jenny Ann (Van Winkle) Zablotney, on Jan. 12, 2008. After a whirlwind courtship, they were united in marriage March 6, 2008, in Las Vegas, Nev. Later that year their son Carter was born. Bob loved the expression "What happens in Vegas, doesn't always stay in Vegas!" Bob was a loving stepfather to Cole, Ethan and Kaylee Zablotney. He was a generous, loving husband and father. He loved the fact that he was getting to teach his family his one great passion, hunting! Robert found no greater peace than when he was able to sit in a tree stand and be in awe of nature and wait for the next big buck.

Robert was a member of the United Transportation Union and has earned his black belt and was an instructor at ATA Fitness Center.

Robert is survived by: wife, Jenny Ann Glasgow, Minot; children, Jacob R.
