Arden Grover: Beloved husband, father and friend
On October 18, 2012, Midland Memorial Foundation was saddened by the news of the death of a dear friend, Arden Roy Grover.
Arden served on the boards of innumerable charitable, religious and civic organizations in Midland. Arden joined the Midland Memorial Foundation Board of Trustees in 1994 and served until 2004 when he accepted an appointment to the Board of Governors where he served until his recent death.
Arden’s contributions to Midland Memorial Hospital are remarkable. Through his service on M.D. Anderson’s Board of Visitors, Arden was inspired to suggest that Midland Memorial Foundation form what we know today as the Honorary Board of Governors. The members of the Honorary Board of Governors serve as ambassadors to outlying and rural communities in the Permian Basin and beyond. Without Arden’s foresight, Midland Memorial Hospital’s influence in our region would not be what it is today.
When one asks a friend or loved one about Arden Grover, the response is an immediate smile. He has been characterized by those who love him as a faithful man of integrity and passionate joy. Midland Memorial Foundation is grateful for the legacy of Arden’s remarkable life which will impact his family and the Midland community for generations to come.
