Paul Louis Glosser

Paul Louis Glosser, aged 91, passed away on Sunday August 22, 2021 in Sarasota, Florida. Paul lived a life of love, laughter, travel, adventure, and, most of all, family. Paul was an avid fisherman, golfer, NY Times crossword puzzler, red wine drinker, Jeopardy! watcher and Steeler fan. Paul was philanthropically involved in Johnstown, Sarasota, and Jewish charities.

Paul was born in Johnstown, PA on January 22, 1930, the son of Sylvia and David Glosser. Paul is survived by his loving wife of 67 years, Rita Gordon Glosser, his four children, David (Stephanie), Andy (Vickie), Richard (Cathy), and Amy (Janno), ten grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. Paul was an executive at Glosser Bros, the family-owned regional department store chain, where he ran the 15-store supermarket division.

Paul grew up in Johnstown, went to Miami Beach High, and graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1951. While at a fraternity social at Pitt, Paul met Rita Gordon, who became the love of his life. Paul served as a Supply Sargent for the US Army during the Korean War, 1952-1954.
