Vanderbilt bowlers pay tribute to Harry Stoddard, win title in Arkansas

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mark @ 9:27 pm

The Vanderbilt Lady Commodores Bowling Team has called Smyrna Bowling Center their home for the past several years.  Every practice day, the team would roll thru the office of GM Harry Stoddard and, of course, have fun with Harry.  Whether it was nit picking, trading barbs, giving hugs, or just saying “hello”, the ladies one and all would talk with Harry.  With his passing last week, Harry left a spot that no one can fill for the ladies.  In honor of him, they have sewn “Harry” on the sleeve of their shirts, to remain for the rest of the season.  Also, they are making “Harry” a part of their cheer each match.  And as fate sometimes works, good things have already come from the teams’ thoughtfulness – a first win of the season this past weekend in Arkansas!  Read about the match here: Coming out party! Bowlers win title

Harry lives on through HIS bowlers!  Go VU!!

Harry Stoddard gone…but will never be forgotten

Filed under: ALL Categories — Tags: — Mark @ 11:59 am

It is with heavy hearts we tell all of our friends that General Manager Harry Stoddard passed away early this morning.  He was 78 years young.  Harry was the “ambassador to the people” for many different bowling centers for more than 35 years.  A beloved individual to so many bowlers, Harry was the “face” of Smyrna Bowling Center for the past decade, always there with his warm smile and friendly handshake.  He never met a stranger, and with a passion for bringing smiles to faces, he especially liked “his” kids – the high school and young bowlers of SBC.  Everyone who came to know Harry will surely miss his jokes and his smile!!

Visitation with the family will be at Hermitage Memorial Gardens in Hermitage (535 Shute Lane, Old Hickory, TN 37138) on Monday, January 10th from 4:00pm – 9:00pm, and Tuesday, January 10th from 11:00am-2:00pm.  The funeral is now set for Tuesday afternoon at 2:00pm.  For more information on the services, please contact HMG at (615) 889-0361.
