Henry Clay Linstid Jr., 69, a retired Bendix Corp. manager, died Friday at his home in New Market, Va., after a long illness.
Graveside services were being held today today at Cedar Hill Cemetery on Ritchie Highway, Glen Burnie.
Mr. Linstid retired in 1986 as corporate manager of the Bendix data center in Ann Arbor, Mich.
Born in Baltimore, he went to work for Bendix after his 1939 graduation from City College. He later attended night classes and graduated from the Baltimore College of Commerce.
He served as an Army corporal during World War II and participated in combat in northern France before returning to Baltimore. He continued his career at Bendix, holding various positions in accounting and data processing.
Mr. Linstid and his wife, the former Mary Rinker, lived for 12 years on Blenheim Road, in the Rodgers Forge area, before he was transferred to Ann Arbor in 1973, and they moved to Brighton, Mich.
The couple moved to Virginia in January.
Mr. Linstid was a long-time member of the Sharon Masonic lodge in Baltimore and was a member of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Brighton.
Beside his wife, survivors include two sons, H. Clay Linstid III of Clinton, N.J., and L. Mark Linstid of New Market; two sisters, Mildred Sherrard of Baltimore and Florence Simson of Stratford, Conn.; an aunt, Geneva Boone of Baltimore; and four grandchildren.
The family suggested that donations be made to the building fund of Reformation Lutheran Church in New Market, Va., or to the American Heart Association.
