    To Eric & Dave and all my Glover family.
    So very sad at the loss of a great man- who might have been a bit rough around the edges but truly was a teddy bear on the inside, with a heart of gold! Uncle Bob will always hold a special place in my heart. Much love to all of you! Whenever I see a NASCAR race or an episode of Star Trek on TV- it will make me smile at memories shared with him. Xoxo Zanna, Kerry & Scarlet

    My condolences to Eric and the Glover Family, Bob was a great man. He came across rough, but if you were lucky enough to get to know him, he was a truly kind hearted man. He was a straight shooter, you always knew where he stood, a rare thing these days. He will be greatly missed!

    Uncle Bruce, Aunt Carolyn and I are so sorry to hear of Robert’s sudden passing. Our sympathy to David and Eric and families, Uncle Bill, Aunt Helen, Sue and Jan.  We remember fondly our times with Brucie in the younger days and Robert has he became older.  The family picnics were always fond memories, where I remember him trying to challenge Uncle Bruce in seeing who could pile their plates the highest with food.  I do not think he won but he was a close second.  Inside Robert was the most giving person.  He would do anything for his children, and spoke with love and pride of his grandchildren.  You could call on him night or day and he would be there at the drop of a hat to help out.  It was nothing for him to stop in for a coffee and a quick visit to say hi.  He was a son, a brother, a father and a grandfather with so many positive attributes.  Keep his memories close, talk of him often with love and support each other.  You will get through this. 
    With love, Uncle Bruce, Auntie Carol and Sandra

    To the Extended Glover family. I was saddened to here of the passing of Bob. I first met him in GM when I was transferred from MRs O Millwrights. Bob was a little rough around the edges but had a heart of gold. He was one of the first welders I worked with. He was known as KOTA or King of the Arc. An exceptional welder. Please accept my condolences.
