Remembering Ben Glover

Harry Benton "Ben" Glover Jr., born in Tucson on June 12, 1927 at the Stork's Nest, passed away December 25, 2011. He was a third generation Tucsonan whose grandfather packed mules for General Crook at Fort Lowell. As a child, Ben loved to visit San Diego and see his grandparents. He played the ukulele, the coronet, and the trombone in a swing band, appearing at the Blue Moon, and other disreputable locations. After graduating from Tucson High at age seventeen, he joined the Navy. He did his basic training in San Diego and then served in Chicago at a hospital from 1945-1947 (he said this experience was like the movie Captain Newman M.D.). He graduated from the U of A in 1951 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. In his career as an engineer, he was part of the team that built many of Tucson's major structures, including the U of A's Bioscience West, the Udall Center, and the Tucson Community Center. In essence he built his own monument. As a private consultant, he specialized in city pools and churches. He wanted kids to swim in comfort. Ben served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Arizona Historical Society for two terms from 1993-1998. Ben will be missed for his sense of humor and love of life. He was preceded in death by his wife, June Glover and his sister, Madeline Berkenpas. He is survived by his wife, Muriel Keegan-Glover of Tucson; his daughter, Derith (Tom) Glover-Meyer of Pembroke, Mass.; his son, Jeffrey Glover of San Diego; his daughter, Lorraine (Michael) Ray of Tucson and grandchildren, Neal Meyer, Kevin Meyer, Stephen Meyer, Charlie Meyer, and Julie Ray.

    Ben was a very important of the Tucson Mechanical design and construction scene in the 60s thru the early 90s. He was a mentor to me when I was starting out as a consultant and I appreciated his counsel and good humor in all he did.

    Ben was an important part of the early ASHRAE chapter when folks like Leo Krueger, Don Shipley, Dick Palmer, Frank Coates and others were the leaders.

    Rest in peace Bendito!

    You will be missed Ben! I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work under the tutelage of Ben as well, and am a better engineer and man for it.
