Born on June 15, 1929, in Bayonne, New Jersey, Morris Frank Glover was the second child and second son of Albert, Sr., and Grace (Morris) Glover. He attended Bayonne Public Schools, graduating from Bayonne High School at 16 years of age.
Morris accepted Christ as his savior when he was 12 years old, and was baptized by Rev. C.H.S. Watkins at Friendship Baptist Church. He remained a faithful and devoted member of the church throughout his life.
After high school, Morris, known as “Moe” to many who knew him, worked at locally before being hired by the American Can Company, a manufacturing company, located in Jersey City where he would eventually rise to a supervisory position. He was joined in marriage to Helen Glover, née Johnson, whom he had taken to her senior prom, on Sunday, June 28, 1953. Rev. Watkins performed the ceremony at Friendship Baptist Church. Morris and Helen were blessed with three children – Barry Edmund, Lisa Dawn and Scott Vincent Glover.
Following his retirement from American Can after 32 years of service, Morris went to work for Statewide Savings Bank in Jersey City for eight years until he was forced to retire due to illness.
Friendship remained the cornerstone of Morris and his family’s life, where he was a faithful member. His three children were dedicated as babies and baptized at the church. He was a member of the church’s Junior Choir when younger, and sang with the Male Chorus and Senior Choir when he was an adult. He served as a church trustee for more than 25 years and as chairman of the board of trustees for a number of years.
