Brian Bruce Glover, 43, of Los Alamos, NM died unexpectedly on October 30, 2019. He was born June 18, 1976, in Deadwood, SD. He is the first child and only son of Terry and Kay Glover. Brian grew up in Sturgis, SD, and was joined by five sisters, each of whom he loved dearly. Brian took being a big brother seriously and was very protective of “The Sisters”.
It was evident at an early age that he loved science as he was always reading Popular Science magazines. Brian was curious and inventive at a level that astounded most. After working road construction for a few years, he saved enough money for college and attended South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SDSM&T), earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering. During his time there, he worked as a tutor in the Tech Learning Center. One can only imagine the number of students he helped. He never gave up on anyone. Everyone at school was drawn to him so much that his sister Lori, who started at SDSM&T the previous year said, “I used to get called Lori, now I get called Brian’s sister.”
In the Spring of 2003, Brian came to Los Alamos, NM, for his first summer internship at Los Alamos National Laboratory. He completed his bachelor’s degree in 2004 and returned to Los Alamos. During this time, he fell in love with his work at the lab and continued his education at SDSM&T completing a M.S. in Electrical Engineering under the direction of Dr. Keith Whites. He returned to Los Alamos to become the scientist he had always dreamed of being and was meant to be.
He later wrote: “I am a Sturgis South Dakota guy but these days I am in Los Alamos New Mexico. Los Alamos is a sleepy little mountain town filled to overflowing with scientists and engineers. I like it: I fit right in.”
Brian was an adventurous and fun-loving person who loved to hike, bike, travel and cook. Perhaps most of all he loved to share his adventures with others, in person or by telling one of his famous stories. There was nothing better than a Brian story.
He was a son, brother, father, best friend and encourager, extending his love and care to all the lives he entered. He was about to embark on his greatest adventure of being a parent and was building a home with the love of his life, Roz. Brian was a constant in the lives of not only his biological family, but his work family as well. He leaves an unimaginable void and will be missed every day.
He is survived by his parents Terry and Kay Glover, Sturgis, SD; his loving partner and mother to his unborn child, Roz Sereda, Espanola, NM; his treasured friend, Sarah Downs, and little buddy Damien and Damien’s sister Diana; his five sisters, Lori (KJ) Groven and Jennifer Glover, of Rapid City, SD, Anna (Jeremiah) Burke, Whitewood, SD, Melissa (Jake) Gunderson, Los Alamos, NM, and Sharla Glover, Ridgecrest, CA; and 9 nieces and nephews, all of whom adored him.
He is loved and missed beyond words.
Visitation will be 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday at the Kinkade Funeral Chapel in Sturgis. Private family committal services will be Friday, November 15, 2019 at Bear Butte cemetery.
In lieu of flowers the family has established the "Brian Glover Guardian Angel Fund" at Black Hills Federal Credit Union for the benefit of his upcoming child and those he took care of. A memorial scholarship fund has also been established at his alma mater, SDSMT.
