Raymond Glover, the son of Ralph and Marcella (Rupp) Glover, was born October 3, 1950, in Cherokee, IA. His childhood years were spent in Quimby, IA. In 1979, he moved with his parents to Cherokee until 1999 when he moved to Carriage Hills Nursing Home until the time of his death.

Most of all he loved spending time with family and friends. On November 3, 2015, Ray passed away at Careage Hills Nursing Home at the age of 65. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ralph and Marcella Glover; his aunt, Mildred Rupp; uncle, Wilmer Rupp; maternal grandparents, John and Anna Rupp; and paternal grandparents, Herman and Agusta Khurts.

“So sorry to hear about Raymond. My heart goes out to the family. I remember Ray from years ago going to Mass at St. John's in Quimby. Always wearing his suit and being very stylish dresser! He so earned his wings on this green earth. ”
