Paul Glamp, 46, salesman, state wrestling champion

Paul Joseph Glamp, a home-improvement salesman who was captain of the 1979 University of Maryland football team, died of brain cancer Saturday at his parents' Crofton home. He was 46.

Born in Pittsburgh and raised in the Harford County community of Dublin, he was a 1975 graduate of North Harford High School and was the state high school heavyweight wrestling champion.


A 1974 Evening Sun story carried the headline, "Can Anyone Put Clamp on Glamp?" The story noted that Mr. Glamp often wrestled at home with his brothers for practice.

Mr. Glamp earned a bachelor's degree in 1980 from the University of Maryland, College Park, where he played offensive guard.


"The team voted him its captain because he was a nonpretentious, nonegotistical person," said twin brother Peter J. Glamp of Crofton, who played on the team with him. "He led through his determination to win, and he also led with his stare. You knew from his look where you stood. He was a highly competitive person."

Mr. Glamp became a salesman for home-improvement contractors and sold windows and doors.

A Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 11 a.m. Thursday at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Roman Catholic Church, 1800 Seton Drive, Crofton, where he was a member.

In addition to his brother, survivors include his two daughters, Jessica Glamp and Jacqueline Glamp, both of Upper Marlboro; his parents, Walter and Eileen Glamp; two other brothers, Patrick J. Glamp of Crofton and Philip W. Glamp of Veradale, Wash.; and a sister, Mary Beth Miskelly of Alexandria, Va. His marriage ended in divorce.
