Henry Beeman Cottle, Jr., age 77, born July 3, 1941, passed away on Monday, July 23rd after a short illness. Henry served in the United States Army with a tour in Korea, and he was a current and longstanding member of Masonic Lodge 15 in Savannah. Retiring at age 53 from Morgan’s Inc., he found new life in Montrose working the floor at the auction. He could be found every October in his coat and tails calming guests as they entered Haunted Montrose. At age 70, he took up drag racing then later tried his luck on the local dirt tracks. He was a model of good health, someone we all looked up to, and he never met a stranger. He was preceded in death by his wife of 49 years Connie Pender Cottle. He is survived by his wife and longtime friend Eileen Bell Cottle, brothers John Cottle (Jane) and Phillip Cottle (Jo Ann), son Henry Cottle III, grandson Jacob Cottle, daughter Morgan Cottle (John Tuttle). A celebration of life will be held at 11:00 am on Friday, July 27th at Allentown United Methodist Church in Allentown, Ga followed by a private graveside service on Saturday. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Shriners Hospital for Children.
