BEVERLY: Stephen (Steve) M. Glover, the cherished husband of Sandy (Cumming) Glover, passed away on Wednesday, December 9 of 2015, at home with his beloved wife and daughters by his side, and his kitty Molly on his lap.
A lifelong resident of Beverly, Steve graduated from Beverly High School, Class of 1963. He continued his education at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston receiving his degrees in both Architectural Engineering and Building Construction.
Steve began his career as a Fire Protection Engineer with Johnson and Higgins, later merged with Marsh & McClennan Companies. He always loved his work and the many people he worked with. Each day was different and he looked forward to each challenge. As a consummate professional, Steve traveled worldwide throughout the years, aiding, advising and supporting his clients in the protection of their properties, industrial plants and locations. He was called upon, often, to advise in the appropriate safety issues involved prior to the start of and during the construction process of multiple sites internationally.
Steve was always available to mentor an associate or to advise a Client. After 37 years with Marsh & McClennan Companies in increasingly responsible management positions, Steve then continued his career with Wells Fargo Insurance Services as Senior Vice President. He continued his work there for many years while maintaining many of his prior clients.
Steve was a "weekend warrior" trading his business suit for his work duds. He loved working with wood and was always looking for and involved in a new project; a magnificent front porch, a spacious sunroom, a big new shed, splendid decks etc. He also had an extraordinary ability to fix almost anything.
Steve adored his daughters, Krissie of Wenham, and Lisa of Rockport. He is so proud of them both. Family time was his greatest priority. He was always there to assist "his girls" in their many endeavors, to build needed items for them, to fix/repair broken cars, and to lift their spirits with his unique humor and love. He was also the proud godfather of Zak Pinciaro, the beloved son of Ralph and Maureen Pinciaro of Danvers.
For years, many a day would find him boating with family and friends. He loved the smell of the ocean and the summer breezes on his face. Steve, as a "people person" totally enjoyed everyone; from family to old friends, to those he just met, to all his business associates. He was always "up" for a get-together.
Steve was a member of the Dane Street Church growing up and later the North Beverly Congregational Church.
Steve leaves his wife, Sandy, whom he shared 47 years of marriage; his cherished daughters, Krissie and Lisa, his beloved Dad, W. Foster Glover of Beverly; his brother Richard Glover of New York, N.Y.; his brother and sister-in-law, Mark and Linda Glover of Beverly, several cousins, brothers and sisters-in laws, nieces and nephews, and many lifelong friends. Steve, the best guy ever, will be forever with us. He loved life, and enjoyed every moment. With his wit, his caring, his love and for all those things that make Steve so unique and so loved, he will be missed terribly.
At Steve's request, there will be no visiting hours. A brief graveside service for family and friends will be held on Monday, December 14 at 2:30 p.m. at the North Beverly Cemetery, located behind the Second Congregational Church off of Rt. 97 in Beverly. Donations in his memory can be made to The Boy Scouts of America, 598 North St., East Weymouth, MA 02189, The Disabled American Veterans, State House, Room 546, Boston, MA 02133 or to a charity of your choosing.
