Spring Valley, NY - A Brooklyn bus driver who was scheduled to drive a busload of wedding goers back home to Brooklyn was found dead early this morning.

34 year old Mattis Gluck of Borough Park had driven passengers from Brooklyn to a wedding in Spring Valley on Monday night.  Gluck, a long time driver for Monroe Bus, had apparently parked his bus at the nearby Kennedy Mall shopping on Route 59 to wait for the end of the wedding.

Spring Valley Police received report of a medical emergency aboard a bus located at the Kennedy Mall at 3:55 AM. Police responding to the scene discovered a person, who was later identified as Gluck, in cardiac arrest and both paramedics and Hatzolah responded to the scene.

Efforts by Hatzolah to revive Gluck proved unsuccessful and he was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Suffern where he was pronounced dead at 5:05 AM.

Monroe Bus called in another bus to transport the stranded passengers back to Brooklyn.

Police said that they do not suspect foul play in Gluck’s death and that it appears that he died of natural causes.  Police also noted that since no autopsy will be done for religious reasons, they will not be able to confirm the exact cause of Gluck’s death.

Gluck, who was not married, was the son of the well known Chazan Nussen Glick. 

A spokesperson at Monroe Bus who asked to remain anonymous said that Gluck had been with them for approximately ten years and during that time he had developed a stellar reputation with both passengers and his co-workers.

“He was a driver that was very, very nice to people,” the spokesperson told VIN News. “He never had a problem not with people, not with the road and not with driving.  He always had a shmeichel on his face and went out of his way for everyone to help all the time.”

The levaya for Gluck was held at 12 o’clock this afternoon at Shomrei Hadas Chapels in Borough Park, followed by kevura at the Beth Moses Cemetery in Long Island.

Why is everything always the result of some conspiracy or foul play to small-minded idiots? Yes, 34 year old men do sudenly die, as do 25 year old men, 45 year old men, etc. People die every day at all ages of heart attacks, strokes, aneurisms, etc.

They do if the bus is running and he gets carbon monoxide poisoning. Monroe bus should check the exuast system.
