Charlie A. Glover

Charlie A. Glover (Chuck), a longtime resident of Goldendale, Washington, passed peacefully on January 3, 2015 at the Oregon Veterans' Home in The Dalles, Oregon.

Chuck was born in Pine River, Minnesota on November 26, 1926 to Leon and Myrtle (Cuff) Glover. Before he was 10 years old, his family moved to Box Canyon in Goldendale. Chuck married Mary F. Roberts on November 4, 1944; and although they had no children of their own, they "took in" many – including several generations of nieces and nephews-and touched the lives of many more. It was once said, "You just grew up knowing them."

During World War II, Chuck received his "greetings" and served in the Army from November 1, 1945 until he was honorably discharged on July 20, 1946.

Chuck spent his life working as a timber faller and he also raised cattle. He enjoyed his horses, trapping, and hunting. Many stories were told and memories made at elk camp.

He is survived by his wife Mary Glover, sisters Lela (Sid Tallman), Ethyl (Larry Aldridge) and brothers Dale (Janet Firch), and Tony (Karen Kernneen).

He was preceded in death by his parents Leon and Myrtle, sisters Hazel (Ben Tallman), Virginia (Jim Bowles), Marmian Glover, Zella (Oscar Rono, Bud Ives) and brothers Richard (Bessie Sherril), Warren, and Lloyd (Mary Lee Nakunst).

A celebration of Chuck's life was held on Sunday, January 11, 2015 at Columbia Hills Memorial Chapel in Goldendale, Washington. He will be laid to rest in Mabton, Washington.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Legion Auxiliary (PO Box 231 Goldendale, WA 98620), the Klickitat Historical Society (PO Box 86 Goldendale, WA 98620), or a charity of your choice in memory of Charlie A. Glover.
