Robert was born June 9, 1940 at home in Joplin, MO, to James Robert and Loretta Nadine (Williams) Glover. He passed away March 18, 2021 in Joplin, MO.
Robert was the firstborn child of 9 brothers with 1 sister. He was a fruit peddler with several trucks. Robert and his crew drove all over the United States selling fresh fruit. After his retirement from selling fruit, Robert went on to running a salvage yard. There was not a car that Robert could not fix. He loved hunting, fishing, and gardening. Robert never met a stranger, especially since Robert had a new friend within minutes of meeting and talking to anyone. Robert would help anytime someone was broke down or needed a hand. He was truly a friend to all that knew him. Robert will forever be remembered in our hearts.
