I knew Steve when I was a little kid. He was full of joy- so much so that I remember him well almost 40 years later. I know you will miss him.
Steve was our Pastor, friend & neighbor in Glen Allen. A great man. He will be missed.
Mr. Glover was Pastor of our church, Glen Allen Baptist and a very good friend.
In May 1970, Mr. Glover married my husband and I at Southside Baptist Church in Chesterfield, VA, where he was the pastor. He also helped my mother through difficult family times. He will be remembered fondly.
Susan, Amy, Laura and family – So sorry to hear of the passing of your dad and grandfather. While I cannot be at the service on Friday, I would love to hear from you. Please give me a call sometime in the near future so we can catch up.
My family and I joined Southside Baptist Church when I was an infant – I remember Mr.Glover as a kind, sincere man with a genuine smile – I was fond of Mrs. Glover as well. I also remember he was with my parents when I had major surgery at six years old. He baptized me a few years later. He will always have a special place in my heart. My thoughts and prayers are with all of his extended family.
Mr. Glover was my father-in-law when I was married to Susan and we had two great daughters, Amy and Laura. He was always like a father to me as we did a lot of things together and we also joked a lot and made fun of each other. He was a very genuine person and will never be forgotten. Anyone around him, was better off after they shared his thoughts and listened to his version of life. Mr. Glover will always be missed. RIP
Mr Glover married us in his home in1982 july-16th,we will always be grateful to have meet him and his sweet wife..I know all that new him will miss him.Our thoughts are with all of you
Mr. Glover was pastor at Gen Allen church when the Weinstein family arrived in Glen Allen. The Andrews family was already established in Glen Allen. My husband and I have fond memories of Mr. Glover and his family. Mr. Glover was always smiling and had a kind word for everyone. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the family.Betty Schneider sends her sympathy. Mr. Glover married her and her late husband, Tommy.
Rev Glover will always be honored and remembered by those at Southside Bapt. He baptized me, he married me, and he engraved in my Spirit his favorite scripture: Hebrews 13:20-21. At the end of EVERY service, he would quote this! And to this day, I still can hear him saying it! Love and prayers to the family – He was truly a wonderful Pastor and friend!
There is great celebration in Heaven today!Rev. Glover led and inspired Southside Baptist Church through a time of phenomenal growth and spiritual renewal in its youth ministry, and the church was a beacon of His love in the community. That was about 40 years ago and undoubtedly the fruit of his ministry and each of the churches he served can be seen and felt far and wide.
REV. Glover was my paster when I was a child at Webber Memorial Baptist. My family was very fond of him. I was baptized by him, and remember him very fondly. He was truly a spiritual person, and an example of a positive christian. My sister Virginia Worsham Kreynus wishes to be included in this signing, and also has such fond memories of our time at Webber when he was paster.
Mr. Glover will be missed at Louisa Baptist Church. We always enjoyed talking with him over Wed. night dinner or Sunday morning coffee. Our prayers are with the family.Becky Massie & family
Could not let the opportunity pass without sending all of our families` condolences. Mr. Glover was an integral part of our family during the years he was married to Mary Ann. My sons, Skip and Carlton, both thought so much of him and have lots of memories of him spending time with them when they were younger. Of course, we won`t forget how lovingly he cared for Mary Ann during her extended period of illness prior to her death. Mr. Glover was a special person who meant so much to so many and will be missed by all. Our thoughts and prayers are with his entire family during this difficult time.
Happy 100th Birthday G-Daddy! I love you and miss you so much… I just found this Guestbook and my heart is so full after reading all of these lovely messages about my grandfather. He was such a sweet, silly and beautiful human being, so extremely important to me and my life… I will always miss him. I know there was a HUGE party in Heaven when he finally arrived. He was ready to go, he told us that many times. 🙂
