Thanking a classic for his service

Mason steps down as United Way director

GREENVILLE — There were lots of handshakes and hugs Thursday afternoon, as Bob Mason stepped down as the executive director of the United Way of Hunt County.

Mason greeted a long line of friends and supporters during a reception inside the United Way of Hunt County office in downtown Greenville.

“I’m just blown away, just overwhelmed,” Mason said.

Mason is leaving the position and moving to Sugar Land to help with his son’s business.

United Way of Hunt County board president and Herald-Banner publisher Lisa Chappell said interviews are continuing to find the next executive director of the agency.

Mason was named as executive director in March 2010, after his previous involvement in the local funeral home industry, as a member of the United Way of Hunt County board and having volunteered with several area service agencies.

Mason was born and raised in Wichita Falls, where he was the managing director of three funeral homes and was also involved in the United Way.

In 2002, he became the general manager of Peters Funeral Home in Greenville and West Oaks Funeral Home in Sulphur Springs, later joining the staff of Coker-Mathews Funeral Home in Greenville.

Mason has served on the boards of the United Way of Hunt County, the Boys and Girls Club, the Mental Health Association and Greenville Lions Club, as well as the Drug Free Greenville Shattered Dreams Dream Team. Mason is a past president of the North Texas Funeral Home Directors Association and also a co-founder of the annual Roger Krodle Memorial Car Show, which benefits Special Olympics.

Thursday’s reception featured a classic cars theme and the title of “You’re a classic!”
