Thomas A. Glasser Grave Marker


This grave marker, which is at Hackensack Cemetery, located at 289 Hackensack Avenue Hackensack, New Jersey, reveals that Thomas A. Glasser served in the U.S. Army, but the grave marker does not state if he served during World War II. Thomas A. Glasser died in 1991 at the age of 77. 

Thomas A. Glasser was not on the Original Wall Unit List, which is in Hackensack High School, but this confirms his connection to Hackensack by being buried within its borders since passing and forevermore.

Note that there is a Phillip Glasser on the Original Wall Unit at Hackensack High School, but I do not know if they are related at this time.   Also note, Thomas A. Glasser could have served any time after his 18th birthday in 1932 and he would have possibly served during World War II at the age of 27 at the outbreak of the war on December 7, 1941.
