Resided in: Bryan, Texas

Jim Glover passed away in his home, in Bryan Texas, on March 13, 2021.

He was born on February 8, 1946, in Abilene, Texas.

He was a giant of men. If you asked him, he would say, he was 5 feet,18 inches tall. He was a man of faith that believed in serving others. He and his wife Martha served the lord by building churches with the Texas Baptist Men Organization. He and his wife helped plant seeds of faith that will continue to grow. He also served as a deacon at Hillcrest Baptist Church for many years. He was a faithful servant at Christ’s Way Baptist Church. He spent Thursday Mornings at Men’s Prayers breakfast at 5am.

He was a machinist for 40+ years. He owned his own business J-MAR, where he taught his son and others to machine for 21 years.

He was a true family man. Nothing made Jim happier, than to be surrounded by his loved ones. He also loved watching baseball, The Aggies, playing 42, and joking around. He always had a joke to tell.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Reta Evelyn Nicks Glover and A.W. (Slim) Glover, his Brother Arthur Benton Glover, and his Daughter Pamela Lee Copeland.

He is survived by his wife, Martha Glover, his Brother David Glover and wife Judy, Sister in law Ann Glover,  his son Walter Glover and wife Darla, his daughter Julie Sillivent, step son Ron Baxter and wife Brenda, grandchildren LeighAnna Glover, Alyssa Soto, Justin Copeland, Austin (Pike) Sullivan, Matt (Bubba) Rivera, Lacrisha Rivera, Brad Baxter, Robert Baxter, Kennedy Baxter, and 11 Great Grandchildren and many nephews, nieces, and many, many friends.

  1. Jim was a tower of a man who had a huge tremendously kind heart. He displayed his love for God and his gracious kindness to my wife and I not long ago during a church building job in Madisonville. This magnificent person allowed us to not only stay in his home but gave up bed for a week as well.
    This act of Christian sacrifice was touching then and will be forever remembered. Jesus was an example for this giant and he not only talked the talk be showed God’s influence to me and those he met. He will be missed. We pray that God will embrace Martha and the entire Glover family during this trying time.

  2. Jim was a wonderful friend with a keen sense of humor. He was dedicated to serving Christ. He worked with the Texas Baptist Men Church Builders and his talent for repairing anything mechanical enabled other volunteers to keep building. He saved TBM an unknown amount in repair/replacements costs through his efforts. Despite his ongoing health problems, Jim showed up for many buiilding jobs around Texas to serve for the glory of God. We will miss him.

  5. I have known Jimmy Glover since he was 6 years old. He was a true friend and never had an unkind word to say about anyone. Jimmy was a big man – not only in Physical size – but more importantly in the size of his heart. He had a wonderful sense of humor, loved his family, and I can count myself among the countless number of people that can call Jim Glover a friend. There is a special place in heaven for you, Jim. You will be missed.

  6. Jim was a man of such good character. We remember him fondly from the years we were in Hillcrest. He always met us with a smile. He was always ready to help with any project. He was a great example of what a Christian should be.
