Obituary of Lawrence P. Glod

Lawrence P. “Larry” Glod, 71, of Syracuse, passed away on May 17, 2020 after a brief battle with cancer.

Larry was born in Utica, NY in July of 1948, to Adam and Helen (Listas) Glod. After graduating from Notre Dame High School in 1966, Larry attended Alliance College in Cambridge Springs, PA.

Early on, Larry worked at 84 Lumber and Commercial Plastics. But Larry’s true passion was music. Known in the Syracuse blues community as “Hungry” Larry, he played electric bass in several blues acts and bands, including Lake Effect Blues Band, Tom Townsley and the Backsliders, Roosevelt Dean Blues Band, Austin Jimmy Murphy, and Built for Comfort. He was especially pleased to be part of Built for Comfort’s CD “High Ballin’,” and he enjoyed his time touring with Built for Comfort and Roosevelt Dean in the Florida Keys and across much of the South in the mid-1990s.

Larry is survived by his wife, Isabelle (Wielgosz) Glod; his daughter and son-in-law, Kathryn and Stan Reiss, of Bedford, MA; his three grandchildren, Alec, Mark, and Morrie Reiss, of Bedford, MA; his brother, Brian Glod of Shelburne Falls, MA; his sister-in-law Mira Wielgosz and father-in-law, Bronislaw Wielgosz; his aunt, Gladys Slesinski; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Larry was registered with Upstate Medical University’s Anatomical Gifts Program, making a profound gift of his remains so that others may learn. Condolences for Larry's family may be left on the funeral home website.
