July 17, 1948 to April 12, 2017


Mike was the heart and soul of our agency.  He was more than a principal and agent - he was a friend to all he met.

He was born in South Bend, Indiana, and was an avid fan of Notre Dame University.  After he graduated from Ball State University with a marketing degree, he moved to the Indianapolis area and started his insurance career.  After working for both insurance companies and other agencies, he came to HJ Spier Co where he hung his hat until his untimely death.

Mike never knew a stranger.  His love for people and expert quality of gab enabled him to know his clients, company representatives, his co-workers and his employees beyond the office.  One of his most enduring gifts to his employees was his Friday walk around the office asking everyone what their plans were for the weekend.  On Monday, he would always ask how our weekend had gone.

He was also a dedicated, loving husband, father, grandpa and brother to his family.  He loved his family and bragged about them every chance he got.

It's hard to say goodbye to someone like Mike.  Unfortunately, life forces you to do things you don't like.  He remains, however, in our hearts and memories forever.  His partners have honored him by renaming our conference room to the "Michael J Glaser Board Room"  With his plaque hanging in the board room, he will forever be a presence here at HJ Spier and to all those he touched.
