Bill was born on August 7, 1922, in Ozark, Alabama, to the late Oscar and Laura Glover. He honorably served our country during World War II in the United States Army Air Corps. His bravery as a waist-gunner and radar operator on a treacherous mission on board a B24 distinguished him with the Distinguished Flying Cross Award for his heroism and extraordinary achievement while overcoming an enemy attack.
Following the military, Bill attended Architectural School under the G.I. Bill. His knowledge and drive to succeed led him to owning his own architectural firm, Bill B. Glover, A.I.A, in Greensboro, NC, from 1951 until 2009. He specialized in church design and did much work for Burlington Industries. In 1966, he married into the local family of Ted Garner, Sr. who founded the Sanitary Restaurant in Morehead City.
He is survived by his wife, Louise Glover of the home; daughters, Beverly B. Glover-Wood and husband Walt of Beaufort, Janet Louise Sanacore and husband Joe of Morehead City and Kathy Glover of Morehead City; son, Ron Merrell of Robbinsville, NC; grandchildren, James B.
