Harry Bishop Glass

Died: Oct. 1, 2012

Harry Bishop Glass, 83, of Bluffton, S.C., husband of Evelyn Bird Ewing Glass, graduated to his heavenly reward Monday.

Mr. Glass was born Oct. 18, 1928, in Lexington, Ky., and was a son of Harry Williamson Glass and Lillian Bishop Glass.

Harry was always full of life with a ready smile. He was a steady provider, always willing to lend a hand, never met a stranger nor turned someone away in need. Harry readily made friends, had nicknames for many, and was quick in his humor, laughed easily, and loved to "pull a yarn."

During his long career as a banker, Harry treated others the way he wished to be treated and mentored many to careers in his field. As a proverbial team player, he was president of the Tennessee Bankers Association, past president and active member of the Kiwanis Club, former president, chairman of the board, and CEO of Hamilton Bank in Morristown, and served as chairman of the Morristown-Hamblen Hospital Board.

He was also chairman of the board of directors of Walters State Community College in Morristown, served on the Federal Reserve Board of Atlanta, and was active in many other professional and community organizations.

He was particularly instrumental in assisting the development of industry and tourism to the East Tennessee area in the 1980s and '90s.

He held the position as president of First National Bank in Greeneville from 1973 through 1977, before returning to Morristown in the banking industry.

Even after returning to Morristown, Harry and Evelyn continued to make frequent visits to their numerous friends in the Greeneville area.

He retired in 1988.

As a member of the Bluffton area retirement community, he was active with many groups, both in men's fellowships and ministry, couples' gatherings, various church groups, and the community at large.

He is survived by his wife of 63 years; his son: David Ewing Glass (Judith) of Knoxville; his son: Douglas Williamson Glass (Mary Jane) of Elon, N.C.; his daughter: Amy Bishop Glass Allen (Mike) of Bluffton; and his daughter: Laura Duncan Glass Fay (Wes) of Collierville. His legacy continues with six grandchildren: Emily Allen Bailey (Christopher), Christopher Wayne Glass, Aaron Bishop Glass (Heather), Stephen Michael Allen, Brian James Fay, and Sarah Rebecca Fay; and three great-grandchildren: Noah Christopher Bailey, Anna Elizabeth Bailey, and Carter Williamson Glass.

The Glass family is most grateful for your support, kind wishes, and prayers during this time of Harry's illness and passing.

Services will be held Thursday, Oct. 11, at First United Methodist Church, 101 E. First N. St., Morristown.

The family will receive friends from 2-4 p.m. in the sanctuary followed by a memorial service.

A graveside service at the family plots will be held Saturday, Oct. 13, at 10 a.m. in Lexington Cemetery, 833 W. Main St., Lexington, Ky., with a processional starting at the cemetery gate at 9:30 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to The Laurel Foundation, 202 Cardinal Lane, Paducah, KY, 42001, (
