THOMAS EDWARD GLOVER APRIL 27, 1946 - DECEMBER 12, 2010 Thomas left us in the early morning hours of December 12, 2010 following a battle with cancer. As we reflect on Tom's life there is much to celebrate. He was a kind and patient man whose life was filled with love, especially for his wife, Vicky, who survives him. Their shared journey during their 29 years of marriage revolved around family and exploring the country's open lands in search of historical artifacts and opportunities to discover and capture nature's beauty. Tom was born in Augusta, Georgia. Following a 31-year career at the US Department of State, Tom and Vicky returned to Santa Fe, New Mexico to enjoy retirement. Together with Vicky, Tom spent a great deal of time in Santa Fe fishing, taking photos, hiking and exploring the surrounding Southwest. Tom is preceded in death by his parents, Chester and Anne Glover. He is survived by his son Tomas; daughter Marisol Oakley, husband Joe and children Kelly, Rhianna, Layla, Jude and Jack; daughter Rebecca Frasier; husband Michael and children Noah, Alyana and Maelee; daughter Angelica McCollum; sister Patricia TenEyck and family; aunt, Rita Ortman; and aunt Betty Sullivan. There is also a long list of friends and extended family. We will miss Tom's gentle ways and how he touched our lives. We'll remember him in the current of the river, the color of a sunset and the hoot of an owl. Godspeed Tom. . . A Funeral Mass will take place at St. Anne Catholic Church at 11 a.m. on Monday, December 20, 2010. The Glover family thanks you for your prayers, support and well-wishes. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to John XXIII Church, 4831 Tramway Ridge, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87111 to support St. Mary's Girls' School in Kenya.
