Edward R. Glover
Owls Head — Edward R. Glover, 50, died unexpectedly Sunday, Sept.11, 2016, at his home.
Born in Rockland Jan. 26, 1966, he was the son of Grace and Samuel Frost Glover Sr. He was a 1984 graduate of Camden-Rockport High School and earned a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from the University of Maine at Orono.
Ed spent 15 years in yacht sales, management and consulting, traveling to the Caribbean and Europe. He was a commercial lobsterman during the summer and fall, fishing from his 34 foot Calvin Beal lobster boat, Gracie, based out of Owls Head. He was also a real estate agent for Megunitcook Real Estate, taking clients out on Gracie to show them coastal and island properties.
Ed was an avid and accomplished skier, challenging himself on the slopes in New Zealand, the Alps, the Rocky Mountains and, of course, Sugarloaf. He learned to ski at the Camden Snow Bowl as a kid and could still be seen there on sunny afternoons, making telemark turns on the downhill courses.
Ed was always on the quest for new knowledge, devouring any book he could find. He also enjoyed painting, creating many beautiful pieces.
Ed will be remembered for his generosity and outgoing personality. He loved nothing more than cooking hundreds of lobsters for family and friends. He threw epic parties, roasting pigs or lambs over an open spit, leaving no one off the guest list.
Ed had a special place in his heart for animals, especially his 120-pound black Labrador retriever, Little Guy, who was anything but small. Ed and Little Guy were constant companions.
Predeceased by his father, Sam, Ed is survived by his mother, Grace R. Glover, of Camden; his siblings, Nancy Glover of South Portland, William Glover and his wife, Jill, of Rockport, Samuel Glover Jr. and his wife, Allison, of Hope; his nephews, Joshua Glover of South Portland, Matthew Dailey and Josiah Glover, both of Camden, and Samuel R. Glover of Rockport; his niece, Lindsay Guttery, of Aurora, Colo.; as well as countless other family members and friends. Ed will be sadly missed by all who loved him.
