Frank Huthnance
March 12, 1938 - January 5, 2019
Athens, GA- Frank McAllister Huthnance, age 80, passed away on Jan. 5 from complications with pneumonia. He and his wife of 52 years, Ximena Espinosa Huthnance, had recently moved from Clearwater Beach, FL to Suwanee, GA to be near their grandchildren. He was born in 1938 to Frank A. Huthnance, Jr. and Helen Banks Johnson Huthnance. He graduated from Lanier High School and from Mercer University where he was a member of Kappa Alpha. He was also a 2nd Lt in the U.S. Army. Upon graduation from Mercer he was employed by Peoples Bank which was the beginning of a long career in banking. In 1969 he joined Bank of America. During his 18 year with Bank of America he lived in San Francisco, Panama, Venezuela and Ecuador. After retiring from the Bank of America he was President & CEO of Industrias Artepractico, SA in Cuenca, Ecuador. While in Ecuador he was an adjunct professor at Universidad San Francisco de Quito. Frank had the honor of serving as a volunteer for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta before becoming a Vice President of Dresdner Bank Lateinamerika in Miami. Upon retiring from the bank, he and his wife joined the Peace Corp and spent two years in Romania. He served as Community Economic Advisor to the Mayor's Office in Raduati, Romania where he oversaw the Habitat for Humanity program. Upon returning to the USA, he served as HR Director for Suncoast Hospice in Clearwater Beach, FL. Frank loved learning foreign languages and making friends in other countries. He was fluent in Spanish and also spoke Romanian. He had begun to learn French in anticipation of a trip to France later this year.
Frank loved family get togethers and they made frequent camping trips. On July 30, 2016, he and his wife celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a family reunion to Quito, Ecuador, where they renewed their wedding vows in the same church that they were married in. Then they all went on a trip through the Amazon. There are many photos of this on his Facebook page. Their latest camping trip was to High Falls Park this past October.
In addition to his wife, he is survived by his six daughters, Catherine Huthnance, Elizabeth Diaz and Maria Huthnance of Suwanee, Michelle Moody (Jeff) of Lawrenceville, Ximena Huthnance of Miami and Helen Huthnance (Anthony Pezzola) of Santiago, Chile and 15 grandchildren. Other survivors include his sister, Anne Huthnance of Macon, a nephew R. Stephen Rasul of Bonaire and several great nieces and nephews.
A funeral mass was held on Jan. 10 at St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Lawrenceville, GA where he is interred. A memorial mass will be held on Sat. March 23 at 11:00 AM at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Macon, GA where he was baptized and later was a member of the Knights of Columbus.
