GLOVER; James (Jim) Lewis
November 14, 1924 – October 21, 2015
James (Jim) Lewis Glover passed away peacefully on Oct 21, 2015 at the Peace Arch Hospital Hospice in White Rock, British Columbia. He was 90 years old.
Born in Windsor, Ontario on November 14, 1924, to James & Maude (Avery) Glover, he is predeceased by his sister, Jean Prior. He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Muriel (Preston), son Alan, Jane (Harlow), granddaughter Jessica Wolfe, Chris Davis, (just missed great grandson Finley Harlow Davis, DOB Oct 28, 2015), grandsons Jack & Ben, son Bob, Marlyn Chisholm, granddaughters Natalie & Zoe, son Bruce, Wendy (Graves) granddaughters Kirsten & Ellen, grandson Patrick and daughter Nancy. Jim served with the RCAF in WWII. He received a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Toronto in 1950, shortly after starting work at Preston Phipps, Inc. in Montreal in engineering sales. He retired in 1989 as a partner and Vice President in the Toronto office.
Always good humoured, he was an impossible guy not to like. He lived his life with integrity and taught his kids by example. “One does not demand respect, one commands respect”, and command he did. He will be greatly missed and we are grateful for the love he had for his family, friends and colleagues throughout his life. A small family and friends celebration of his life will be held at his home in White Rock on Saturday, November 14th, his 91st birthday. Please give your thoughts to Jim and donations to the Canadian Cancer Society and / or the Canadian Veterans (https://vtncanada.org/rffp/) would be appreciated.
