Hi. I'm not related to this family. There is a cemetery record for Jerry Emmett Glassco (& wife Jeanne) here:

Web: Michigan, Find A Grave Index, 1805-2011 about Jerry Emmett Glassco
Name:        Jerry Emmett Glassco
Birth Date:        15 Jan 1923
Age at Death:        49
Death Date:        26 Nov 1972
Burial Place:        Leelanau County, Michigan, USA

It looks like Jerry & Jeanne lived in Michigan for some time. Here is a little newspaper article that mentions them:

"Mrs. Jerry Glassco and family left Tuesday for Miami after a two week visit with Mrs. Glassco's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Isadore Gauthier. Enroute, they stopped at Grand Rapids where they visited Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Gauthier." ~Traverse City Record Eagle - Saturday, July 16, 1955, Traverse City, Michigan

Here is a birth announcement for your dad:

"He's Walter Emmett - A son was born July 10 at Munson hospital to Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Glassco of Lake Leelanau. He has been christened Walter Emmett. Mrs. Glassco is the former Jeanne Gauther." ~Traverse City Record Eagle - Monday, July 14, 1947, Traverse City, Michigan

Here is an engagement announcement for Jerry & Jeanne:

"Engagement Told - Mr. and Mrs. Isadore Gauthier of Lake Leelanau announce the engagement and approaching marriage of their daughter, Jeanne, to Jerry Glassco, A.M.M. 2/c, stationed at the local Coastguard Air Station. Jerry is the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Walter Glassco of Tulsa, Okla., and Charleston, Ill. The wedding will be an afternoon event of October 17th and will take place at St. Mary's church at Lake Leelanau." ~Traverse City Record Eagle - Tuesday, September 24, 1946, Traverse City, Michigan

This is probably the Glassco family in 1930:

This is probably Walter in 1910:

Walter E Glassco        23 -son- b. 1887 Illinois; farmer, partner **
Alia Nellie Glassco        19 -dau- b. 1891 Illinois

From a tree on it looks like the Glassco's/Glasscock's came from KY and prior to that Virginia. Hope this helps. Annie
