The longtime company president and son of its founder died Tuesday at age 89.

Frank M. Fenton, the longtime president of Fenton Art Glass in Williamstown and son of its founder, has died at the age of 89.

Fenton died Tuesday afternoon.

The fifth child and first son of Frank L. Fenton was born Dec. 1, 1915. He attended grade school in Williamstown, but crossed over the Ohio River to Marietta, Ohio, to attend high school. He entered Marietta College in September 1932 and graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in 1936.

For nearly four decades, Frank along with his brother Bill headed Fenton Art Glass.

Fenton Art Glass is continuing a 100th anniversary celebration throughout 2005 with special glass productions. The celebration kicked off in Williamstown July 29, but Fenton was too ill to attend. His most recent public appearance at the factory was when Gov. Joe Manchin visited in May to help commemorate the company's 100th year.

A visitation is planned from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at the First United Methodist Church in Williamstown. A memorial service will be held 2 p.m. Saturday at the church.
