On December 28, 2021, Officer Glover received a positive test for COVID-19 and was hospitalized. Over the last few weeks, his condition deteriorated and he passed on February 6, 2022.

Officer Glover began his TDCJ career in September 2012 and was always assigned to the Torres Unit.

“Officer Glover was a dedicated employee of this agency for nine years, a true sign of commitment, one of TDCJ’s core values,” said TDCJ Executive Director Bryan Collier. “He served this agency well and was an integral part of our organization. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and co-workers at the Torres Unit,” he added.

Torres Unit Assistant Warden Luis Hernandez said, “Officer Glover mentored many officers over the years and always put others first. He was a real motivator to everyone on the unit and he never complained. He had a great attitude and will be missed by all of us at the Torres Unit.”

Officer Glover was married and had one daughter and two sons.
