Obituary of Richard Glover, III

Please share a memory of Richard to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Richard "Rick" Glover III, 47, passed away on Friday, May 24, 2024, at Overlook Medical Center in Summit, New Jersey.

Born in Manhattan, New York, Rick spent much of his growing years with his immediate and extended families in New York, Louisiana, Texas and South Carolina. He later resided in New Orleans, Louisiana where he attended Southern University and obtained a Bachelor of Engineering.

At the time of his passing, Rick was an employee for Tropicana Products Inc. in Jersey City where he worked for nearly 20 years. “Richie” as he was known by his colleagues, was an exemplary employee and was loved by everyone for his wit and overall work ethic.

Rick married the love of his life Marie Glover, on April 20, 2013. Rick and Marie enjoyed life to the fullest and had the opportunity to travel, attend concerts, and family outings and celebrations. Rick and Marie have been residents of North Plainfield since 2014 when they began raising their family. 

Rick was a beloved figure, his life enriched by his children, Peyton, Victoria "Tori", and Richard "RJ" Glover, IV - his greatest and proudest accomplishments. Being a father brought him immense joy, which was evident in his every interaction with them.

A true New Yorker with Southern roots, Rick was a firm believer in the golden rule, 'Do unto others as you'd have done upon you.' It was a principle he lived by, and it was evident in his kindness and generosity. Whether through his word or deed, Rick never hesitated to give of himself without reservation. His absence will be deeply felt by those whose lives he touched.

He is survived by his loving wife, Marie Glover; children, Peyton, Victoria, and Richard IV; parents, Flora Jean Cummings and Richard Glover Jr. (Darnell); siblings, Yolanda Johnson, Rayshell Anthony (Marcus), Tracey Glover, Shayna Cunningham and Terrell Glover (Tiffani); and many extended family members in New York, Louisiana, Texas and South Carolina.
