Thomas Clarence Glovier, 60, of Center Township, finally at peace with himself and his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ passed away on Sunday, March 5, 2023 at Brighton Rehab and Wellness Center.
He was born in Aliquippa on March 4, 1963 the son of the late Clarence and Martha (Sutton) Glovier. He graduated from Kiski Prep in 1971, and earned a BA in economics, with a minor in Religious studies from the College of Wooster. He spent a semester in Israel, and also hiked through England. Thom worked as a sales representative for several different companies, ending his career at IBEX Global in North Fayette as a telemarketer and trainer when his health began failing.
He was a longtime member of The First United Methodist Church of Aliquippa where he served as a Certified Lay Servant, Finance Chairman and on several other committees. He was active with the Butler District Lay Ministry School, as a director, co-teacher and student, and occasional pulpit supply. He also served several years with Contact Beaver County.
Thom loved fishing, (having caught a citation-eligible steelhead trout), hunting, camping, going to garage sales, and adding to his collection of old toys, walking sticks, china tea cups, and glass paper weights. He also loved working in the garden with Kathy and creating beautiful flower beds around his yard, and sharing his perennial plants with many others. Thom loved to argue a point, and willingly played the Devil’s Advocate just to keep the discussion lively and flowing.
He is survived by his spouse, Kathy Anderson Lynch Glovier; a sister Kay Keller Pohaski of Markleyburg, PA; several nephews and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Thanks to the 5 Main staff at Brighton Rehab and Wellness Center, and the folks from Gallagher Hospice who cared for him so kindly his last few weeks.
