He was raised in Kingman and graduated from the University of Arizona. A civil engineer, Mike spent a career in construction including running Glancy Construction in Kingman, building a section of I-40 at ADOT and many years as a manager for concrete and material suppliers in Kingman and Las Vegas.

Through out life you come across individuals who place an impression on you that lasts for a long time. As a fellow member of the management team for Bonanza Material Mike was always fair and supportive even when I transitioned into a construction manager. Without him my life at the company would have been short lived I'm grateful for those days to have known him and to have rubbed shoulders with him and the men we worked with. May he Rest In Peace and may his family and friends be supported in their time of loss. Kelly Booth

Grandpa,
I feel lucky to have had you around for as long as I did and I always loved talking with you. I loved that you were able to see me grow up and I hope to have made you proud. Thank you for always being supportive of me and welcoming me or whoever I brought around. I'll never forget hunting with you and how awesome your stories (and spotting eyes) were! Thanks for being such a hard worker and always providing for your family, your kids are my favorite people and I'm sure it's because of how they were raised. I love you and I'll miss you dearly.

From Don Barnes; WOW, i thought my friend Mike would be with us forever. I will really miss him. Just hear about it from Robert Terril. Best man I ever worked with, most honest, cordial, friendly, fun loving etc. Cant name all his attributes. I know your sorrow Lulu. Always think of him on St Patrick's day with his "green" outfit (Don Barnes 541-969-2668)

I will always cherish the memories I have of Uncle Mike. The patriarch of the Glancy clan, he was smart, funny, and dedicated to his family. I loved hunting with him when I was young, watching sports with him growing up and just visiting with him and hearing stories about the past. The nickname he gave me was "piper's son". From a very early age, I could count on being greeted with the monicker anytime I had the pleasure of his company. I wish I could have spent more time with him over the years. I'm sure many of his family and friends feel the same. We will miss you Uncle Mike! My love and condolences to Lulu and my cousins. I hope to see you all soon.

My Dad was an excellent provider. He worked hard for his family and I can't think of a time when any of us didn't have something we needed. That's saying a lot when you consider he was the sole provider for 9 children and 4 grandchildren that spent most of their youth in his home. His long hours allowed our Mom to stay home and shower us with love so I can't thank him enough for that.

Daddy-O,
You loved me unconditionally, imparted your strong work ethic upon me and believed in me from day one. I am so grateful for everything you provided us including the nicknaming gene. I miss you immensely and will love you forever.

Please accept my heart felt sympathy for the loss of your beloved Mike. When someone we love falls asleep in death the memories we have of them become our treasure so may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends and may those cherished memories of a life well lived and Gods promise at John 6:40 ease the pain of your grief during this difficult time.
