His mother's parents, Dr. Eugene and LaVieve Swenson, followed and have lived in Mesa for almost all of their married life. His father's parents, Harry and Patricia Glover, came to Arizona in 1956. They fell in love with Mesa and its charm and decided to live here. Christopher's parents, Mark and Ann Glover, have lived in Mesa for almost their entire lives. Glover has lived in Mesa for his entire life, except the two years he spent in Argentina on a mission as a representative of his church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
