Thomas Glen Casalaspro
OCEAN CITY — Thomas Glen Casalaspro, of Ocean City, passed away peacefully in his sleep at home on November 7, 2022.
His family, friends, and anyone who had the opportunity to cross paths with him now grieve the kind, silly, and unconditionally loving influence he had on everyone around him.
Glen was born on July 26, 1953, in Brooklyn, N.Y., as the fourth oldest of nine children. He was a jack of all trades, attending Aviation High School — an aircraft mechanic technical school and going on to become an HVAC mechanic, boiler engineer, and managing the upkeep and maintenance of the condominium complex in which he lived with his family until 2001. He greatly enjoyed camping, fishing, crabbing, spending time at the beach in Ocean City and fixing anything and everything he could get his hands on. In the last years of his life, his favorite pastime was caring for his two very well-loved birds, Ima and Acki.
Glen is survived by the pride and joy of his life, his two daughters, Jessica and Teri Lynn, as well as sons-in-law, Paul Buede and Thomas Sharman, and the loving mother of his children, Robin Helm, along with 11 grandchildren, Claire (Michael) Hilbers, Owen Buede, Kyle Sharman, Andrew Buede, Katie Sharman, Margaret Buede, Mary Buede, Khloe Sharman, Kaylin Sharman, Eleanor Buede and Edmund Buede. He is also survived by five siblings, Lu Ann (Robert) Gilhooly, Steven (Marie) Casalaspro, Kathleen (Alan) Leibel, William (Aleyda) Casalaspro, and Vincent (Jeanette) Casalaspro, as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Glen was preceded in death by his parents, Michael and Kathleen Casalaspro, as well as three brothers, Robert Dowse, Michael Casalaspro, and Neil Casalaspro.
Family was, above everything, the most important thing to him.
There were no strangers to Glen, making friends quite literally anywhere he went, and he made everyone around him feel like the most important person in the world. His family and friends will remember him as a loving and caring father, a thoughtful and playful grandfather, and one of the best people to be around, when you just wanted to have some fun. He leaves behind 69 years of memories and love to be cherished and never forgotten by all who loved him.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Friday, November 18, 2022, at 4 p.m. at St. James the Greater Catholic Church, 49 Crosswinds Drive, Charles Town, W.Va. 25414, with Father Timothy Grassi as the celebrant.
The family receive friends Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022 at the Eackles-Spencer & Norton Funeral Home, 256 Halltown Road, Harpers Ferry, W.Va. 25425.
