John Perry Glover, loving son, brother, uncle and friend, passed away quickly on the evening of November 23, 2022 after battling... well, you name it! From two different kinds of cancer to diabetes to COPD, he was the HEALTHIEST unhealthy person ever. He left this world at peace with the life he lived, pleased with the good, remorse for the bad and hopeful that the sum of his life left an impression for the better on those he loved.\n\nBorn March 3, 1943 in Philadelphia, PA to John Glover and Ellen Lyons Perry Glover, Perry was the youngest of three children. He was also the only boy so needless to say he was spoiled... and he knew it! He said he often got away with things his sisters never could. He felt some guilt for that but the sincerity was doubtful as he could never say that without a chuckle. \n\nPerry served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in his parents homeland of Ireland. His mission president was Stephen R. Covey whom he greatly admired. He learned a lot from this experience and devoted much time and effort throughout his life to doing good.\n\nNot long after his mission, Perry served in the United States Army where he completed a tour in Vietnam. Like most who served there, he came back forever changed. He would struggle with those demons the rest of his life. He bore that stone-like burden alone so he could spare others the pain. Only a select few later in life would be able to lighten this load and likely by only a few pebbles. \n\nSpending two years in Ireland started his love of travel! Luckily he worked his entire career with United Airlines and took advantage of the flight benefits! He did much of his travelling while married to his wife Dianne. They traversed the globe admiring the beauties of the earth and playing tennis along the way. They traveled to Hawaii, Rome, Paris, Madrid, the West Indies, Barbados, St. Thomas, St. Croix, Australia, Mexico, not to mention their trips to the western United States. Perry always felt blessed to have been able to see and do so much in his lifetime. He and Dianne remained good friends after their divorce, for which he was truly grateful.\n\nPerry's intellect and humor naturally drew others to him. He was loyal and expected the same in return. He loved to help others when he could and regularly donated to Fast Offerings even though he wasn't active in the church. He was loved by everyone in his circle. Our family and his friends will miss him dearly. We love you forever, Perry! \n\nOur family would like to express our deepest love and gratitude for the hospice nurses and caregivers at Enhabit and Anthology who so willingly and affectionately made these last two years not just bearable but enjoyable for Perry. He loved and appreciated each of you! \n\nA viewing will be held Friday, December 9, 2022, 10:00-11:00am at the Jenkins-Soffe Funeral Home, 1007 W. South Jordan Parkway, South Jordan, UT; followed by a graveside service with military honors at Noon at the Utah Veteran's Memorial Cemetery, 17111 S. Redwood Road, Bluffdale, UT. The graveside service will be webcast on Perry's obituary page on the Jenkins-Soffe Funeral Home website.
