Robert Ivan Glovier

Robert Ivan Glovier, 79 of Sylvania and recently Port Clinton, died Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2013, at Flower Hospital.

He was born Sept. 25, 1934, in Aliquippa, Pa., to Clarence and Anna (Sebring) Glovier.

Bob was a graduate of University of Rhode Island, where he earned a degree in chemical engineering. He was active in the Knights of Columbus, AMVETS and the Democratic Central Committee. Bob was an avid Pittsburgh fan but his real passion was teaching. He spent his retirement as a substitute teacher and enjoyed the spark of understanding he could evoke in a person. Bob was a compassionate man who always said “I love you” and wasn’t afraid to show his affection. He loved spending time with his family, fishing with the boys and working on logic puzzles.

Bob leaves behind his loving wife, whom he would sing to at night, Sandra (Montero); three sons, Robert (Wyatt) Glovier, Carl Glovier and Daniel (Sandy) Glovier; three sisters, LaRue Schafer, Paula Paxton and Margaret “Peg” Ludwico; a brother, Clarence “Bud” Glovier; and three grandchildren, Cassandra, Monica and Nicholas.

He was preceded in death by his parents and three siblings, Byron Glovier, JoAnn Walker and Richard Glovier.

His funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013, at St. Patrick of Heatherdowns, 4201 Heatherdowns Blvd., Toledo.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital and National Ovarian Cancer Coalition Northwest Ohio Division.
