Morley B. Glick

August 14, 1925 — October 29, 2013

Morley B. Glick, 88, of 158 McKenery Drive, Rostraver Township, died Wednesday, June 12, 2013, following a brief illness.

He was born August 14, 1925, in Arnold City, PA, the son of Nellie (Harris) and Sam Glick. He graduated from Marion High School in May of 1943 and attended the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music.

A self-made man, Mr. Glick supported himself while still in secondary school by driving a truck for the Hillman Coal and Coke Company. He enlisted in the Army Air Forces in 1943 at the age of seventeen and by 1945 had achieved the rank of Staff Sergeant as a radio operator of a B-17G bomber with the 487th heavy Bomb Group of the 837th Bomb Squadron. In Dr. Regis Serenko's book, Freedom's Heroes, the 185 around the clock bombing missions of the military, economic and industrial systems of Germany by Glick and his crew were chronicled as part of Operation Point Blank, which greatly contributed to the defeat of Germany in World War II.

On July 11, 1949, Morley married Leona Moskwa in Winchester, Virginia, a marriage that would last for one month short of 64 years. His wife passed away on June 12 of this year. Mr. Glick was a charter member of the Lion's Club of Rostraver Township in 1953 and also served one term as its president. He became a partner with Pete Bruno in the Bruno Plumbing business. Later he sold insurance for New York Life and subsequently started his own insurance agency. For the decade prior to his retirement, he served in various manager roles in the State Store system.

Mr. Glick is survived by his two sons: Leonard M. Glick and wife, Kathy, of Groves, Texas; and Mark B. Glick and wife Hitomi, of Honolulu, Hawaii; and a daughter, Natalie A. Huey, of Madison, PA. Natalie's husband, Alan, passed away in 2006.

Arrangements are being handled by Robert A. Billick Funeral Home, Inc : Monessen, Pennsylvania (PA). No funeral services will be held at the request of the family. A private burial service will take place at the Belle Vernon Cemetery.
