My heart goes out to his family. He was truly more then just a doctor to me. He took care of my parents, he took care of me my whole life (literally - he delivered me 34 years ago!), he was always so kind and supportive and real. He was a shoulder to cry on when I lost my mom a few years ago. He loved seeing pictures of my boys and was the first person to ever put the idea of going back to school for nursing in to my head. I'm heartbroken and he will be deeply missed.

A Henry fishing story during the PCOM years; Henry took me night fishing off the Jersey shore, pitch black, miles off the coast, the boat bobbing up and down for 3 hours and I .was sea sick for three hours. No problem,while pulling in fish after fish, Henry treated me with his unique blend of humor and joking making me laugh through my misery. Henry felt so bad for me, he actually caught a fish on his line, but then handed me his pole so that I could reel in the fish to say I caught one. I smile today thinking of the fun we had that night and on many other escapades

So sorry I just learned of this today! And here the Eagles were heading to the Super Bowl! Not just my doctor but a reliable ear always there to listen. Sad.

So deeply saddened to hear of Dr. Henry Glover's passing. He was such an amazing physician and person. You would often hear people say they would not look forward to a doctor's visit. But, this was never the case for me, when I resided in Oakland, as one of his former patients. He and his wonderful staff always seemed to brighten my day, despite my illness!!!

His legacy will shine on through his wife, Michelle and daughter, Abigail.

My deepest condolences are with his family, extended family (office staff) and the many dear friends he has left behind. You will be missed dearly! God Bless!

Dr. Glover was the most wonderful doctor that I have ever had. I am devastated by his passing. There is no one like him. He was more like a friend than a doctor. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Michelle, Abbie, and his family. From Nancy Herlihy and George Moran.

Such a great loss to everyone who has ever even met this wonderful man. He was the absolute 'real deal'. You never had to wonder what was on his mind. Whether it was about a sports team, a political view, or your health, you always knew exactly how he felt about it. He has been my Doctor for about 25 years and I will always miss his thorough diagnostic skills as well as the knowledgeable interactions about sports, New Jersey, Sanibel and Captiva Islands, and life in general. My heartfelt sympathy goes out not only to his family and patients, but also to his wonderful office staff. This is a sad time for everyone who knew him.

I was so saddened to hear of Henry's passing. He took great care of not only myself but both of my girls and my mother and fiance. He always had a friendly welcoming smile and I always felt he genuinely cared. The only silver lining...if there is to be one, is that he is watching over us from above now. Michelle and Abbie, our prayers go out to you and though I never met you I always felt as if I knew you because Henry always spoke so lovingly of both of you. We are so sorry for your loss, Laurie Godin, Pete Plourde, Amanda Libby and Ursula Godin

Michelle, Abbie, and family. My deepest sadness and prayers are with you . Dr. Glover saved my life twenty five years ago by making the right diagnosis and getting me into surgery. He always greeted us with a handshake and that famous smile of his.He took excellent care of my Mom and Dad and he will be sadly missed. No one can ever fill his shoes. He was a kind person and always made everyone feel special by taking the time to listen to us and what was wrong. Even my Parents who were elderly said to me one day he always shakes my hand and gives me a smile and listens to me. He was the best of the best and will always be in our thoughts. He loved his family and spending time with them. I remember when Abbie was a baby we could watch her grow up he had pictures of her in every room. He was so proud of his little girl and loved her and Michelle very much they were his world. I did not go out and shovel tonight since that was one thing he use to tell me not to do and then when I did not listen he use to tell me I was one piece of work. I thought of those words today and took the shovel and put it down thinking Dr. Glover is watching over all of us but no one down here is going to be able to give me the care I need so I put the shovel away He was a great man, doctor and someone that you could always know that he would tell you the truth and help you deal with it . Thank You Dr. Glover for giving us all the excellent care and patience that you did. You will be missed.

Dr. Glover was exceptional. He has been my Dad's doctor for many years (he is elderly now, so I bring him to his appointments) and he took such a genuine interest in Dad's life (and mine) which is a very rare gift in today's rushed world of medical care. Henry was the real deal, always with a mischievous twinkle in his eye and genuine concern for his patients. I used to think we were special, but clearly he made everyone feel the same way. ♡

My heart is broken. Dr. Glover was more than a doctor, he was a caring, compassionate old friend. He was always so good with Troy, Sean, and me, always joking with Sean about sports. He became my doctor when I was twenty one. Here we are, twenty two years later. He watched me get married and my son grow up. He truly was Best of the Best for physicians. With deepest sympathy and condolences for Michelle and Abbie, who he always spoke of proudly; and all of his staff, especially Erin, Ellen, and Angela. We will miss him dearly; we already do.
