Born on October 31st, 1995, in Scottsdale, Arizona, Brendan completed his family of four, alongside his father, Michael Glover, his mother, Erin Kelly, and his sister, Briana Glover.

At a young age, Brendan discovered his passion for baseball, quickly becoming a standout player. His family spent countless weeknights and weekends immersed in the sport they all cherished. Brendan’s dedication extended to countless hours at the batting cages, playing catch in the backyard, and one-on-one training. Even though he eventually stepped away from the game, his enthusiasm for sports never wavered.

Brendan’s love for horses was another defining aspect of his life. Following his time at Arivca Boys Ranch, he found solace in training and riding horses, ultimately forming an unbreakable bond with his own horse, Thor. The healing and companionship Thor provided inspired Brendan’s family to donate him to a facility for working with other children, continuing Brendan’s legacy of compassion. Brendan was still on his journey to find his career passion but the one part of his life that was set to last was his love and dedication to his best friend Dannika.

His absence leaves a void that will be deeply felt by family, friends, and all who had the privilege of knowing him. We will forever hold Brendan’s memory close in our hearts, sharing our cherished moments and preserving his legacy.

We had only a brief contact with Brendan but in that short time he lit up our lives.

The way B lit up a room was undeniable. He is a one of a kind man that can not be replaced in our hearts. My heart goes out to his family during this difficult time, I hope it brings some comfort to see how many lives Brendan impacted and how much we all love him. He was the glue to many friendships, and many of them being childhood friendships. He was always inviting everyone over to watch the game or go to the lake. That boy just loved to have a good time. We are going to miss that laugh

Love you B

Growing up Brendan was just another brother to me, and remained family to mine throughout the years. His infectious laughter could put a smile on anyones face. I can say I truly have never met someone with such a love for life like Brendan had. I’ll miss him giving me shit about riding horses better than me! So sad I will not be able to make it to the ceremony, but my deepest condolences go out to the family and loved ones that are missing him the most.

Brendan will always be a part of the Halbert family! So many wonderful memories. From many hours of baseball and football, to camping, sleepovers and general day to day shenanigans that him and George would get into. As my dad (Pop Spatola) always said, Brendan was just overall fun to watch playing baseball! His smile and genuine happiness will be so very missed. My heart breaks for Mike, Erin and Briana and this great loss. We love you all!

My love and prayers go out to all of the family. I hadn't seen Brendan in a long time. But I remember playing catch with him at mom & dad's house as a child. A wonderful memory.
