He was a soldier. He was a Border Patrol agent. He was a motorcyclist. He wasn’t killed during his tour in Iraq. Drug smugglers or boarder jumpers didn’t kill him. Cheldon Levay Glover was killed after a car struck his motorcycle as he was driving down Intestate 95 on January 5, 2012. Glover was heading down I-95 near 151st Street when a van knocked his bike into traffic and kept driving. A Mercedes Benz soon struck him also. The driver of the Mercedes stopped and called 911. Thirty-year old Glover was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center, where doctors diagnosed Glover with several broken ribs, a punctured lung and a broken pelvis. Glover died eight days later at the Trauma Center of a heart attack, leaving behind a one-year old daughter.
According to Glover’s father, he had always wanted to be a solider. G.I. Joes interested Glover more than any other toy as a child. By his high school graduation, Glover had enrolled in the Army National Guard’s 743 Maintenance Division. Prior to his deployment to Iraq, Glover also passed the quartermaster chemical-equipment repair course at Maryland’s Aberdeen Proving Ground. Those who knew him said he had a soldier’s mentality. But he was also very personable. Glover had arrived home less than a week earlier to surprise his family. He arrived at his sister’s surprise graduation party and, according to party guests, she was in a state of shock when she saw Glover.
