SUPREME COURT OF ARKANSAS
April 5, 2012
IN MEMORY OF
JUSTICE THOMAS GLAZE
On March 30, 2012, Honorable Thomas Glaze, who served with distinction on this
court from 1987 to 2008, died at the age of 74. Following his retirement from the court,
Justice Glaze valiantly battled his declining health and pressed forward to successfully complete
his memoir on election reform: Tom Glaze with Ernie Dumas, Waiting for the Cemetery Vote:
The Fight to Stop Election Fraud in Arkansas (2011). This was a testament to the courage and
determination that marked his life.
The Arkansas Supreme Court joins the citizens of this state in saluting Justice Glaze for
a life well lived, a life of service in pursuit of justice. The court extends its deepest
condolences to his wife, Phyllis, and the rest of his family.
On this sad occasion, we republish the court’s sentiments expressed upon Justice
Glaze’s retirement. In re Retirement of Justice Thomas Glaze, 374 Ark. App’x 719 (2008):
