Eric Le Blanc Glover was born to the union of George and Agnes Glover in Los Angeles,
California on December 13, 1949. Eric said, “I was the second boy and second born.” In 1956
the family returned to San Diego, residing on Carlos Street near Market Street. Eric attended
Our Lady of Guadalupe until fifth grade. As a result of Interstate 5 freeway being built, the
school was demolished. Consequently, he finished his elementary education at Chollas
Elementary in 1962. In 1963, he attended and graduated from Gompers Junior High School,
and advanced to Lincoln High School. While attending Lincoln, he played the clarinet, ran track,
and played football. In his J.V. football year, the team won the city and county championship.
This win awarded the entire team tickets to the Super bowl (Kansas City Chiefs vs. Green Bay
Packers), held in Los Angeles, California. In 1968, Eric graduated from Lincoln High School.
After high school, Eric joined the Marine Corp. During his tenure, he fought in the Vietnam War
until he completed his two year enlistment.
In 1970, Eric worked as a warehouseman for the Navy supply center for several years. In 1973,
he attended Southwestern College where he earned his associate’s degree in acting in 1975.
He performed in community theatre while attending college, where he acted with James Avery
(The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), Johnny Houston (episode in MASH), Anasa Briggs and Ayo Musan,
to name a few actors.
During Eric’s pursuit in higher education and acting, he married his first wife of five years, Sheila
Prittchett, who preceded him in death.
In 1975, Eric attended welding school for six months and became employed by NASCO for three
years. In 1978, he returned to his place of birth, Los Angeles, California, where he employed his
welding skills. He obtained employment as a cement finisher for several years. He later went
back to serving the government as a mail carrier for four years, until he became disabled.
While disabled, he worked various jobs, the last job being a landscaper, for Los Angeles
In 1981, Eric met his second wife, Tamara Murray and helped raise her two sons, Trent and
Scott. In 2004, Eric returned to San Diego to help care for his ailing mother.
Eric loved fashion design and dressed sharp from head to toe. His colorful suits always matched
his bright hats, shoes and vibrant personality. His love however went beyond his exterior. He
was a magnificent human being. He loved family, women, children, and dominoes. His passion
and skills for dominoes gave him the title “The Dominologist” as he called himself. Anyone that
played dominoes with Eric can attest that he was the best player and teacher of the game. His
lust for enjoyment does not stop here. He also enjoyed music, namely “Jazz and Rhythm and
Blues.” Eric used to dub the best compact disc for his family and friends.
In 2011, Eric’s health began to decline and he became 100% totally disabled. In 2012, he
became a proud home owner, two doors away from the house he, his parents, and siblings
once lived in.
Eric Glover felt God calling him to heavenly peace on May 10, 2021 when he left this earth
surrounded in God’s arms. He joins his parents, Agnes and George Glover, his siblings,
