Harry Allen Trewhitt, 73, of Cleveland, finally retired to heaven on April 21, 2017.
He was born in Cleveland, on Sept. 23, 1943. He was a member and treasurer at Prospect United Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
He loved seeing his grandkids and great-grandchildren playing at his house. He loved going in to work every day, although he said he never thought of it as work. And he loved playing bridge, not just for the game, but because of the people he got to play with. As an accountant for 51 years, he was honored to serve his clients every single day. You gave him joy every year, and he always made a point to visit and recommend your businesses in return.
Harry graduated Bradley Central High School in 1961 and received his Bachelor of Science degree from Tusculum College in 1986. He was a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Tennessee Society of Certified Public Accountants and served on the boards of the Cleveland State Community College Foundation, the Tri-State Exhibition Center, and the Cleveland Country Club. He has been a member of the BPOE since 1986.
Harry is preceded in death by his mother, Bana Clough, stepfather Samuel Clough and two sisters, Gloria Lipps and Virginia Stutz.
He is survived by former spouse, Wilma Trewhitt; two daughters, Kim Trewhitt and Kristin Neely; two grandchildren, Kasey Tolzmann and Keegan Neely; two great-grandchildren, Luca and Liliana Reinehr; honorary family member, Karen Wooden; and beloved bridge and work partners.
A celebration of life is planned for Saturday, April 29, at 4 p.m. at Prospect United Cumberland Presbyterian Church located at 310 New Murraytown Road in Cleveland, with the Reverend Butch Hullendar and the Reverend Phil Sumrall officiating.
The family will receive friends at the church on Saturday from 2-4 p.m.
The family requests that in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to the Cleveland State Community College Foundation in memory of Harry Trewhitt or to Prospect United Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Harry would want you to remember that donations may be tax deductible, so save your receipts.
