Glen Burnie, MD (September 28, 2017) – It is with great sadness and regret that we announce our well-esteemed and respected President Emeritus, F. William Kuethe, Jr. (Bill), passed away on September 24, 2017, after a brief illness.

Bill leaves a lasting impact on both the employees and the culture of The Bank of Glen Burnie, and played an important role in the success of the Bank through the years. His leadership and contributions to The Bank of Glen Burnie span decades, having served as a Bank Director since 1960. Later in his career, Bill served as President and Chief Executive Officer of The Bank of Glen Burnie from 1995 until 2007. He served as President Emeritus of Glen Burnie Bancorp from January 2008 until his passing. A pillar in the community, Bill was deeply committed to serving Glen Burnie, and met all he encountered with an infectious smile that will be missed greatly. We honor both his memory and his service to not only our Bank, but our community. We extend our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the Kuethe family and know that his influence carries on within our organization through the values and work ethic Bill exemplified.

No memorial service or visitation will be held, but charitable donations can be made in memory of Mr. Kuethe to Kuethe Library, P. O. Box 218, Glen Burnie, MD 21060.
