SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury Mayor James Ireton Jr. said the city is mourning the loss of Robert Gladden, who died June 27 at age 80.
Gladden served on the Salisbury City Council from 1992 until 1996, serving as council president in 1994 and 1995. He also served on the Ethics Board for the City of Salisbury and the Elections Board for Wicomico County.
"Our community already feels the loss of Bob Gladden," Ireton said Monday. "In whatever capacity he was asked, Bob served Salisbury. I will remember his large smile and hearty laugh. Bob's commitment to our community and his valuable advice about issues will be missed. We lower the flag at the Government Office Building today and tomorrow in his honor."
Wicomico County Executive Rick Pollitt said in a statement, "Bob Gladden was a dedicated public servant in every sense of the word. Our community is much stronger for his having served it and I join his family and friends in expressing our grief and respect."
