Frank Fenton Memorial

 

August 13, 2005

 

by AMBER DAVISON

WTAP News, Parkersburg, WV


A community says goodbye to a well-known businessman and philanthropist.

Belinda Fetty's father worked at Fenton Art Glass for 40 years. During that time, her family grew very close to the former president of the company:, Frank Fenton.

Mr. Fenton passed away Tuesday afternoon. He was 89 years old.

"He was a very generous man, very loving man, a man of his word. If he said he was gonna do it, he did it," Fetty recalls.

Judging by the hundreds packed into the First United Methodist Church in Williamstown, Fetty's family is not the only one who will miss this well-known philanthropist.

"He'll be greatly missed," she says.

The family is asking that donations be made to the First United Methodist Church [304 W. Fifth Street, Williamstown, WV 26187].
