It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Dee Louis Glueck, on July 10, 2017 in Mill Creek, WA. Dee was born in New Orleans, LA and is preceded in death by his parents, Sheila and Louis Glueck, his sister, Patricia Glueck Landry, and his son, Greg Glueck. Dee touched the lives of many during his days at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign where he was a member of Sigma Chi fraternity and received his Bachelor of Architecture degree. He and his wife of 64 years, Edris O'Neal Glueck, moved on to Virginia and Georgia as he served in the United States Army, reaching the rank of captain. They began their lifelong commitment to parenthood with the birth of Jami Glueck Zellner, followed in rapid succession by Dary (Donna) Glueck, Randy (Karleen) Glueck, DeAnne (Cullen) Coltrane, Scott (Irma) Glueck, Jon (Nancy) Glueck, and Jennifer (Dave) Braile. This resulted in the creation of 24 grandchildren, ranging in age from 36 to 4, and seven great-grandchildren under the age of six. Family was always at the center of Dee's life. After serving in a variety of capacities at Louisiana State University, including the University Architect, the Assistant Vice Chancellor, and the Associate Athletic Director, Dee and Edris migrated to the Pacific Northwest where he became the Associate Athletic Director for the University of Washington. All that is purple and gold was close to Dee's heart. After a brief stint as the Associate Athletic Director at Auburn University, he and Edris returned to the Pacific Northwest to retire. One of Dee's most prized possessions were his championship rings from each university's successful football program. In the recent past, groups who have benefitted from knowing Dee include Brookdale Mill Creek where he called bingo every Monday, the Mill Creek Chorale, in which he sang baritone, and the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Bothell. The celebration of Dee's life will be on Wednesday, July 19 at 10 a.m. at St. Brendan's Catholic Church in Bothell, 10051 NE 195th St, WA, followed by a reception in the church narthex and a private interment at Tahoma National Cemetery in Kent, WA. A memorial for Dee is planned for the fall in Baton Rouge, LA. The family asks that no flowers be sent. Instead, donations may be made to , or the .
