LEONARD GAY

RETIRED HAVERTY'S EXECUTIVE

 

Atlanta -- Leonard Omar Gay, a member of the executive team that led

Haverty's from the 1950s through the 1980s, has died. He was 80.

Gay joined Haverty's as an assistant accountant in 1947 and retired in

1989 as executive vice president, treasurer and chief financial officer.

Rawson Haverty Sr., Havertys chairman, said Gay was a member of the

triumvirate -- along with Haverty and President Frank McGaughey Jr. -- who

helped Havertys evolve from a downtown credit retailer into a more upscale

chain serving the suburban Southeast.

"Leonard saw that there were adequate funds to operate and that

accounting produced prompt and reliable figures," Haverty said. "He knew and

trusted us because Leonard was there."

Gay was a member of the National Home Furnishings Assn.'s board for 13

years and was president in 1977-78.

He also chaired NHFA's government affairs committee from 1972 to 1975.

He was a director of the American Furniture Academy and Hall of Fame from

1976 to 1978. His articles on financial management were published frequently

during the 1960s and 1970s in NHFA Reports, and association publication.

Gay raised rare and prized roses and frequently delighted his friends in

the Havertys offices by bringing in flowers of their favorite varieties.
