Mark Richard “Z” Glover, 59, of Las Cruces, N.M., formerly of Beaver Falls, passed away in his sleep Sunday, July 28, at home. He was born Nov. 27, 1952, in Beaver Falls, graduating from Beaver Falls High School in 1970.

Mark lived a wandering life, living in various parts of the Southwest for most of his adult life. He had colorful stories of his years working at the Grand Canyon, specifically at Phantom Ranch, and of being a “chicken-slinger” in Albuquerque. Mark was a deeply kind and generous soul with friends in all of the various places he traveled. At heart, Mark was a caregiver and all that knew him understood and appreciated his kindness to so many.

He was preceded in death by his father Olson W. Glover, mother Wilda O. Glover and brother Olson “Skip” Glover.

Mark is survived by his sister Judy Sabella (Joe) of New Brighton; son Stephen; brothers: Robert Glover of Seattle, Wash., Byron Glover (Bobbi) of Tempe and their son Samuel; nephew Matthew Glover and his daughter Sophia Glover of Austin, Texas.

A memorial celebration of Mark’s life will be held in late August, with his ashes returned to the Grand Canyon.
