Dick grew up in Attica, the youngest son of Carlton and Olivine Snyder Glor. His family, the Snyders, were some of the earliest settlers in Wyoming County. The Glors were farmers and loggers in Orangeville, and Dick was the grandson of Paul Phillip Glor, a Union soldier during the Civil War.
Dick also served in the military overseas in both Germany and Japan in World War II. After returning home he married and raised his family in Attica where he worked and retired as a Stationary Engineer from the Attica Correctional Facility. He was also very active in the union there for several years. He was a member of the Attica Fire Dept. for many years and during that time, he served as President and was instrumental in obtaining scanners for the department. Dick loved football and the Buffalo Bills, harness racing and bowling on several leagues. He also spent many years boating on his favorite lake, Conesus.
All who knew Dick enjoyed his wit and great sense of humor. He had a lot of really good advice; always look twice when crossing double train tracks, enjoy your children it is the best time of your life and most important, no matter what comes your way, be a survivor. And he was usually, always right.
