Mr. Glover was born Dec. 14, 1930, to Lee Adam and Maud (Beaty) Glover in Wilder, Tenn. He graduated high school and furthered his education by attending and receiving a bachelor of science degree in agriculture from Arizona State University. In 1961 he moved to Alaska where he became a homesteader in Anchor Point. He had a sawmill business on his homestead for many years. Lee was a member of the Anchor Point Church of the Nazarene.
The family wrote, “Lee Roy loved God, his family and Alaska. He worked hard all his life and enjoyed working the land and running his sawmill. He was known as a quiet man, but he loved to tell stories and share
a good laugh. His laughter will be missed. He loved spending time with his family and getting to know his grandchildren. He was a humble man who put others needs before his own. He was a loving father and a wonderful husband. We will all miss him.”
He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Bob, and sister, Evelyn.
He is survived by his wife, Judy, of Anchor Point; daughters, Judylee (Andy) Whitaker and Bonny (Ermond) Poore, all of Spencer, Ind.; sister, Betty Yohpe of Lebanon, Ohio; grandchildren, Lisa Grinstead, Paul Grinstead and Paul Poore, all of Spencer, Ind.; great grandchild, Bentley Grinstead of Spencer, Ind., and many nieces and nephews.
