Eliot P. Hurd Jr.


Eliot P. Hurd Jr., who had worked for a national chain of bowling alleys and was active in sports, died Saturday at Union Memorial Hospital after surgery.

Mr. Hurd, who was 44 and lived on Brevost Road in Randallstown, had a form of muscular dystrophy.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at St. Thomas' Episcopal Church, St. Thomas Lane and Garrison Forest Road.

In the 1970s, before becoming ill, Mr. Hurd was a department manager or assistant center manager at Fair Lanes Bowling Centers in the Baltimore area and in Houston.

In 1974, he bowled 299 as a member of the Pikesville bowling league.

He crewed often on sailboats racing on the Chesapeake and in 1969 for his father in the Annapolis-to-Newport Race. In addition to sports, he was interested in coin collecting and visiting Civil War battlefields.

Born in Baltimore, he was educated at the Calvert School, St. Paul's School and the Pennington School in Pennington, N.J.

In the mid-1960s, he served in the Coast Guard.

He is survived by his wife, the former Rosalie Schilling; a daughter, Lisa Marie Hurd of Randallstown; his mother, Marian Handy Hurd of Baltimore; his father, Eliot P. Hurd Sr. of Baltimore; his stepmother, Janet H. Hurd of Baltimore; and two sisters, Ellen H. Schuman of Charlottesville, Va., and Susan H. Bondi of Annapolis.

The family suggested memorial contributions to the Muscular Dystrophy Association or to the Pasquaney Trust, which operates a camp he attended.
