Bill Glover died in his 87th year in Toronto on July 16, 2022.
Bill was a private man, even with his close friends at Metro Marine, and we do not know much about his early life or his career.
However, Bill was a long time member of Metro Marine and although he hasn’t sailed recently, he used to sail Victorias and Solings, amongst other yachts.
He was always willing to help and never refused if asked. He was a fixture at all Metro Marine events and went down to the boat pond everyday.
He does not have any close next of kin, and in many ways Metro Marine Modellers was his family.
He left his entire modelling collection to Metro Marine Modellers. I would like to especially thank Charlie Mann, a friend of Bill’s, who organized the pick-up of his collection last Friday and it is now with Michael Steele. We will ensure Bill’s boats etc. are distributed to club members in accordance with Bill’s wishes.
We will miss Bill. He was a gentleman with a gentle approach and in many ways epitomized our club ethos.
