Bernard P. Glow, 83, of Stockholm, New Jersey, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Dec. 26, at home, after a short illness.

Born on March 25, 1935, and raised in Franklin by the late Bernard and Anna (Palsulich) Glow, Barney was a lifelong Sussex County resident. He graduated from Franklin High School with the Class of 1952 then went on to earn his Mechanical Engineering degree from Stevens Institute of Technology, with the class of 1956. As a civil engineer in the early 1960s, Barney worked on many bridges stretching along Route 80. He was well known in the County as the owner of Barney’s, which began operations as a chick hatchery and later became a thriving hardware and power equipment business. After the business of 44 years closed, Barney enjoyed managing rental properties and was regarded as a compassionate and generous landlord, often to his own detriment.

Barney enjoyed feeding birds and fish, chasing away squirrels and chewing the fat with his faithful friends. He loved his wife, his family, his friends and especially his dog. He had an irreverent sense of humor, which we will miss dearly. Barney had a wonderful life and brought happiness and humor to those who were fortunate enough to know him.

Barney was predeceased by his sister, Jane (Glow) Blackburn and her husband David.

Barney is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Marie (Tosolt) Glow; his sons, Thomas Glowaczewski of Levittown, NY; Michael and his wife Kyung Suk Glow of Farmington, UT; his daughter, Maryjean (Glow) Ellis and her husband John Ellis of Sparta; grandchildren Nickolas Glowaczewski of Vernon and Ashley (Glowaczewski) Palmieri of Hawthorne; his brother-in-law Joseph Tosolt and sister-in-law Eileen Tosolt; nephews, a grand-niece, and grand-nephews.

Viewing will be at the Goble Funeral Home at 22 Main St., Sparta on Sunday, Dec 30 between 4-8 p.m., with a service at 7:30 p.m. Donations in his memory may be made to Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice, 55 Sparta Ave, Newton, NJ 07860, or to Father Johns Animal House, 50 Father Johns Lane, Lafayette Twp., NJ 07848.
