Harry D. Wootton Sr., president of an automobile dealership in Pasadena, died Sunday at Johns Hopkins Hospital after a stroke. He was 68 and had lived in Chestertown for the past eight years.
Services for Mr. Wootton were being held today at the Loring Byers funeral establishment, 8728 Liberty Road in Randallstown.
In 1969, he started Volvo Land Inc. in Pasadena, which did business under that name until it added other lines of cars and became known as Wootton Motor Cars.
Earlier, he was a partner in Michaelson Motors, a northwest Baltimore dealership with which he had been associated since 1948.
Born in Baltimore, he served in the Army during World War II and received a Purple Heart after being wounded while serving with an armored unit in Europe.
Mr. Wootton is survived by his wife, the former Lillian M. Harrison; three sons, David W. Wootton of Brooklandville, Harry D. Wootton Jr. of Clearwater, Fla., and Frederick B. Wootton of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; two daughters, Linda Lee Gorsuch of Westminster and Susan Gail O'Hara of Baynesville; five grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
