    Bob was one of the most genuine people I have ever encountered. He had a way of being everybody’s friend no matter the circumstances. The world is less bright since his passing.

    My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

    Godspeed, Bob.

    I wish to join the many celebrating the life of Robert Glover.
    Bob lived a life in service to others and he did so with humility and a clear sense of pride and purpose. Bob’s commitment
    to others was always apparent as a mentor to many in his career as a federal officer for the DHS/TSA. Bob’s good deeds will continue to live on in the hearts and minds of all those who have had the great good fortune to have known Him. I can think of no greater lasting legacy. As we pause to reflect on our loss we know that in time our sadness will be replaced by so many memories and life lessons of Bob.

    I met Bob on his 1st day on the floor at TSA. He quickly fit in with everyone at the check point as a friendly hard working guy.
    He was always eager to help others no matter the task.
    He was quick with a smile and loved to engage with his co-workers.
    He became a very important piece of the puzzle at TSA and will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
    My sympathies to his family and his TSA family at this time.
    Rest In Peace, Bob. You have taken a piece of all of our hearts with you.

    I met Bob while working at TSA, we would punch out together at the end of every shift. He brightened up the entire checkpoint and was always willing to lend a helping hand. After I left the TSA Bob and I continued to correspond by mail. I will truly miss hearing from him, he will be missed dearly.

    Bob was a great man and friend. He and I started together in class back in December 2008. I learned a lot from him and enjoyed working beside him any chance I was able to during bids. His famous line “What are you doing” will be missed as will he be missed also. Rest easy my friend and we will hold the line from here.

    Rob, you will be missed by your TSA family. His bright smile and beautiful soul will be sorely missed by all who knew him. I have many wonderful memories of my days working with him. He was always ready to help those who had a question. He always had a hug ready if you were having a rough morning..
    RIP Rob, the man, the legend

    I was trying to find you on Facebook…..instead I found your obituary. I’m so sorry my friend.
    I remember the days playing cards with you, me Kenny in the basement. Your ma and dad trying to get us to stop smoking. Going up to Maine to the cabin with our riffles to shoot beer cans out of the trees. Rest in Peace my friend…….
