Frank Babington Bird

Frank Babington Bird, age 93, of Maryville, passed away Tuesday, May 25, 2010, at the family home. Born March 12, 1917, in Athens, TN, he was the youngest child of J.T. and Emily Bird. As the son of a Methodist minister, the family lived in several areas of East Tennessee including Maryville. He was preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Ruth and Grace; brother, Merrill; and daughter, Patsy. His first wife Agnes, with whom he practiced law, died in 1994. He leaves his wife Martha; her daughter, Charlotte (Art) Ellis; granddaughter, Kara; nieces, Marilyn (Stu) Hammond and Julia (Robert) Cooper; nephew, Jim (Becky) Bird; a great nephew and several great nieces. He also leaves his brother-in-law, Bob (Carol) Thornton, and sister-in-law, Elizabeth Thornton, all of Texas. Mr. Bird graduated from Central High School in Knoxville and earned his law degree from UT in 1941. After serving in the Army Air Corps during World War II, he opened his office in Maryville in 1946. In the course of his career he practiced with several attorneys, the last being Mr. Lee Kull. At the time of his death, he was the oldest practicing attorney in Blount County. Mr. Bird was a member of the Maryville Optimist Club and American Legion Post 13 and will be remembered for his many contributions to Maryville and Blount County. He founded “Boys and Girls County Day,” “More Blount Jobs,” and was the moving force behind the establishment of the Blount County Industrial Board, serving as its attorney for thirty years. He was an avid supporter of Maryville College, UT, Blount Memorial Hospital, and the Blount County Library. The family wishes to express thanks to Dr. John Ingram, III; his caregivers, Virginia, Dolly, Angela, Autumn, and Caleb; and to his longtime assistant and friend, Pat Martin. A memorial service will be held 1 p.m. Saturday, May 29, 2010, at Miller Funeral Home Magnolia Chapel. The family will receive friends from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the funeral home. Because Mr. Bird supported many philanthropic interests, the family asks that in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to any favorite charitable cause.
