|Glascock, Bedford Cook
Birth: 1930-02-03 in Washington, D.C.
|Bedford Cook Glascock, of Solomons, Maryland passed away quietly at his home on the morning of September 8, 2014. During his final days he was surrounded by family and loved ones.|
Bedford was born in Washington, DC on February 3, 1930 to William Bedford and Sarah “Catherine” Webster Glascock. They initially resided at Indian Head, Maryland, then in his early teens moved to the family’s Strathmore Farm in Solomons.
He attended Charlotte Hall Military Academy and at the age of 16 enrolled in the University of Maryland, where he joined the Phi Kappa Sigma Fraternity and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture. During College he spent two summers working construction on the Alaskan Railroad. Upon graduation he enlisted in the United States Army and served for two years, receiving an honorable discharge with the rank of Sergeant.
In 1955, Bedford married his sister’s college roommate, Judith M. Coleman of Silver Spring, Maryland. The couple resided in Solomons, raising two children. Judy passed away in 1990. After three years he married Annabelle H. Layfield of Princess Anne, Maryland who was his wife for sixteen years until her passing. In 2012 he married lifelong friend Barbara Bright Barrett who brought much joy and happiness to his final years.
After leaving the Army, Bedford initially pursued his lifelong love of agriculture by operating the family farm until sudden health issues forced a change of career. Earning his Coast Guard License, he worked as a charter boat captain and began selling insurance on nights and weekends. This soon developed into a full time occupation.
He founded Glascock Insurance Agency in Prince Frederick, Maryland, which he managed until his retirement in the late 1980’s. Active until the end of his life in the local business community, he developed a number of commercial real estate projects and was an initial investor in Calvert Bank and Trust Co., serving for many years on their (as well as their successor bank, Mercantile of Southern Maryland’s) Board of Directors.
Over his lifetime, Bedford was active in a number of community organizations. He belonged to the Solomons Volunteer Fire Department, the Calvert County Lion’s Club and the Calvert County Sportsman’s Club. He was an active member of the Solomons Island Yacht Club from 1948 until his death, serving as Commodore in 1963. He was a member of the Calvert County Ducks Unlimited Chapter and chaired their annual fundraising dinner for a number of years. A lifelong member of Middleham and Saint Peter’s Parish, he was the Cemetery Sexton for Middleham Cemetery for over twenty years.
He was an accomplished cook, an avid fisherman and hunter, and loved nothing better than winding a big fish or sitting in a blind. In later years when he could no longer tolerate the cold, he reveled in preparing meals for a dozen of his buddies at his hunting lodge. He never lost his love for “keeping his hands in the dirt” and planted large gardens every year. His family and friends never lacked for fresh fish or vegetables.
He collected farm tractors, bulldozers and fishing boats, then rebuilt them with his own hands. He cared deeply for his family and friends and set the highest examples of honesty and integrity, his handshake worth far more than copious pages of contract. He will be missed.
Bedford is survived by his wife, Barbara, his sister, Sarah Elizabeth “Sarabeth” Smith, of Vero Beach, Florida, son, William Bedford “Bill” Glascock and his wife, Kathleen of Solomons, daughter, Mary Elizabeth “Beth” Wyrough and her husband, Page of Lothian, Maryland, stepson Daniel “Skip” 3rd and wife, Linda of Lusby, Maryland, stepson Michael Lane “Mike” Barrett and partner, Laurel of Stewart, Florida, grandchildren Bedford “Cook” Glascock, 2nd, Richard R. Coleman “Cole” Wyrough, Sarah C. Webster “Katy” Wyrough, Maura A. Glascock, William Kiplin S. “Kip” Wyrough, two nephews, four step-grandchildren and one step great-grandchild.
There will be a visitation at the family home, 325 Strathmore Lane, in Solomons, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM on Thursday, September 11. A memorial service will be held at Middleham Parish Hall, 11:00 AM on Friday, September 12, with a reception at Solomons Island Yacht Club following.
Donations in lieu of flowers should be sent to Solomons Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad, or Middleham Parish. Arrangements provided by Rausch Funeral Home.
