Stained Glass Emblem

Dr. Mark Alfonso Glover was born in Brooklyn, New York on September 25, 1950 to his proud parents Percy and Bessie Glover. He was the first born of five children. Thirty-one years ago, Mark met and married Esther Villegas with whom he built a great life and whom he cherished dearly. Mark loved the Lord, his family, and his friends. He worshipped at Our Lady of Pompeii in Brooklyn and in later years at St. Patrick's Cathedral in Manhattan. He was an intelligent man who was clever and had a great sense of humor. Moreover, Mark was known to be loving and a naturally caring person who was very protective of his family.

He began working at an early age. He delivered groceries, was a stock boy, shined shoes and cashed soda bottles to earn money. He attended Public School 141, Junior High School 49, Bryant High School and City College. In 1982, he graduated from New York University (NYU) Medical School. He became Board Certified in Internal Medicine with a certification and specialty in Pulmonology. He did his internship and residency at Harlem Hospital Center and a fellowship with North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System. Mark practiced medicine at Beekman Downtown Hospital, New York Presbyterian Downtown Hospital and was the Clinical Director at Metropolitan Correctional Center.

In addition to having loved medicine and having dedicated time to keep abreast of medical advancements, Mark was a well-rounded person. Mark loved music – he played the cello and the trumpet; sports; dancing; watching old movies, television game shows, news broadcasts, MSNBC, and CNN; teaching; and learning.

Mark fought a good fight, kept the faith, and finished his course. He departed this life on Thursday, July 2, 2015 with his family by his side. His father Percy Glover and brother Dwayne Glover preceded him in death. Mark leaves to cherish fond and loving memories: his wife Esther; his mother Bessie Glover; his father-in-law Rev. Canido Berrios; step-son Phillip; godson David; granddaughter Hanna; his sisters: Sandra, Cynthia, and Paula; brothers-in-law: Samuel, Jose, Daniel, and David; sisters-in-law: Milka and Loida (Vicki); his nephew and nieces: Twain, Jameisha, Chariss, Charessa, Dawanna, and Naomi; his nephews/nieces-in-law: Justice (Ishmael), Evan, Jessie, Andrew, Joshua, Jason, Melissa, and Stephanie; several great-nieces and great-nephews; and a host of relatives and friends.

Visiting will be Wednesday 4-8pm, with a service at 7pm, at Joseph A. Lucchese Funeral Home, 726 Morris Park Avenue, Bronx. Interment will take place on Thursday at 10am at Mount Hope Cemetery.
