Theron H. Spring, 98, bank vice president

Theron Hardwick Spring, a retired bank vice president and former Catonsville resident, died in his sleep Wednesday at Homewood Retirement Center in Williamsport. He was 98.

Born and raised in Braintree, Mass., Mr. Spring earned a bachelor's degree in business from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, in 1929. He also earned a law degree from the University of Baltimore.

During World War II, he served as a Navy quartermaster.

Moving to Baltimore in 1945, he joined the real estate department of Equitable Trust Co. He later worked in the trust and mortgage departments before being elected assistant secretary-treasurer of the bank in 1958. He moved to the personnel department in 1961 and retired in the early 1980s.

"Ted was second-in-command of the bank's personnel department and formulated many of its policies," said William F. Amelia, retired Baltimore public relations executive and former Equitable vice president. "He was a respected and revered fellow at the bank and a total gentleman."

Mr. Spring had lived on Oak Forest Avenue before moving to the Williamsport retirement community in the late 1980s. He was a member of Williamsport United Methodist Church.

Graveside services will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at Loudon Park Cemetery, 3620 Wilkens Ave.

He was married for 59 years to Margaret Leigh Crosby, who died in 1995.
