Henry Neale Bair, 78, of Westminster, died on Wednesday, March 29, 2017



Henry Neale Bair, 78, of Westminster, died on Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Bair family at this difficult time.

Henry was really neat people. Many years ago, I did some landscaping for him. He was a wonderful customer and I really enjoyed his company and friendship. He will be missed. I’m very sad to hear of his death.

I understand the emptiness that overshadows siblings when death comes and grief lingers. Yet, death cannot separate you from a lifetime of love and shared memories. These gifts remain as God's loving touches of His grace.

May God keep open the "eyes of your heart" to remind you of his constant presence to comfort and guide you, to love and keep you, and grant you overcoming peace. In Loving memory

For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Romans 13 v4

Obituary for Henry Neale Bair

Henry Neale Bair, 78, of Westminster, died on Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at University of Maryland Medical Center following complications from a fall.

Born in Baltimore on November 8, 1938 and raised in Westminster, he was the son of the late Scott Slaybaugh Bair, Sr. and Anita Bankard Bair.

He was a 1957 graduate of Westminster High School and briefly attended the University of Baltimore prior to entering the U.S. Navy. Following discharge from the Navy, he worked for Black & Decker Mfg. Company in Hampstead and Finch Services in Westminster. In 1966 he changed his career path and joined his family’s real estate investment firm, Development Company of America, founded by his father in 1954, and he worked there for eight years as a leasing representative and project manager. Upon leaving DCA he then worked for his brother Emerson in his real estate investment business for a number of years before retiring.

He enjoyed fine American-made automobiles such as Buick and Cadillac sedans, GMC pickup trucks, good country cooking, Maryland seafood, and spending time with family and friends.

He loved Carroll County and never desired to live anywhere else. Beginning in his youth and reinforced by his years of employment with Finch Services, he had a great affinity and respect for the Carroll County farming community and the farmers who worked the land. In his high school years after school and during summer vacation he worked on several farms in the Westminster area and for Henry Hook, an Oliver Farm Equipment dealer.

He loved animals, particularly cats, and over the years cared for numerous house cats and many stray cats who found their way to his door. He always enjoyed the change of seasons and observing the wildlife which populated the woods surrounding his house, especially the Canadian geese which year after year came to his pond to make their nests and raise their young. Many generations of the original pair of geese would be welcomed back and fed by Henry.

He was a member of Grace Lutheran Church. He was a former member of Reese & Community Volunteer Fire Department.

Over the years he was a generous supporter of many national charities and local institutions such as Carroll Hospital Center. Henry was also a caring friend to many people and was always willing to help someone in need.

He is survived by brothers Emerson F. Bair and Glenn S. Bair, and sister Elizabeth Bair Warehime, all of Westminster, sister-in-law Ruth Hering Bair, nieces Priscilla B. Pickett and Jennifer A. Warehime, both of Westminster, and Heather B. Anuszewski of Baltimore, nephews Scott Bair, III of Atlanta, GA, Greg Bair of Little Valley, NY, Glenn Bair, Jr. of Old Lyme, CT, Thomas Bair of Hagerstown, Matthew Bair, Alex Bair, Jeremy Bair and Michael Bair, all of Westminster, numerous great nieces, great nephews and cousins, and special friends Roxanne McCarley, Terry Bare and Walt Washel. He was predeceased by brothers Scott S. Bair, Jr. and Harvey B. Bair, infant nephew John Patrick Scott Warehime, sisters-in-law Joan Matthews Bair and Jane Henry Bair, as well as close friends Edith Green, Mary Barnes and Jay Clutz.

A funeral service will be held at Pritts Funeral Home & Chapel, 412 Washington Rd., Westminster on Saturday, April 8th at 11:00 AM, with Rev. David R. Bare officiating.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8New International Version (NIV)

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
