    1. [S4] Obituary.
      The Honorable Harvey Arthur Lupton, 91, retired Judge of the Superior Court, died Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2001, at Forsyth Medical Center.

      Judge Lupton, the son of the Rev. Frederick A. and Rena Bridgman Lupton, was born Sept. 1, 1909, in Whortonsville.

      He received his undergraduate education at Duke University and graduated cum laude from the School of Law at Wake Forest University. He was the Congressional Secretary (Administrative Aide) to Fifth District Congressman Alonzo Dillard Folger and John Folger in Washington, D.C., where he was named Congressional Secretary of the Year. He was also a special assistant to the Attorney General of the United States. He practiced law for a number of years in Winston-Salem, during which time he was president of the Wilsonian Democratic Club. In 1954, he became Solicitor (District Attorney) of the 21st District, then comprised of Ashe, Alleghany and Forsyth Counties. He was elected to successive terms for 11 years until 1965, when he became a Superior Court Judge. He held court throughout the state and was re-elected to successive terms until he reached the mandatory retirement age and was ineligible to run for re-election in 1981. At the time of his retirement, he was the Senior Resident Superior Court Judge for the 21st District, then comprised of Forsyth County, and had served over 26 years as an elected official. After retirement, he was appointed an Emergency Superior Court Judge and served in this position for a number of years. He served as president of the N.C. Conference of Solicitors (District Attorneys) and as president of the N.C. Conference of Superior Court Judges. He was a past vice president of the North Carolina Bar Association and a past president of the Forsyth County Bar Association. He was a member of the Pattern Jury Commission for over 20 years where he helped draft uniform jury instructions used in jury trials in the state. He was licensed to practice law before the U.S. Supreme Court, the District of Columbia Courts, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and all of the Federal and State courts of North Carolina. He will be remembered for his devotion to his profession, his even temperament and his belief that all attorneys and litigants who appeared before the Court should be treated with respect and courtesy. He was honored at his retirement by the Forsyth County Commissioners, who named the large courtroom, in the then new Hall of Justice, the Harvey A. Lupton Court Room. A portrait of Judge Lupton, presented by the Forsyth County Bar Association, was hung in this courtroom. Members of the Bar Association also created a scholarship in his name at the Wake Forest University School of Law. The Forsyth County Criminal Defense Trial Lawyers Association presents an annual Harvey A. Lupton Award to an individual who has distinguished himself in the field of criminal law. He was a member of Marvin United Methodist Church, where he was a past member of the administrative board and a past teacher of the Young Adult Sunday school class. In retirement, he was a former board member of the Consumer Credit Counseling Service and of the Winston-Salem Foundation. He was a member of the Winston-Salem Host Lions Club, where he received the 1999 Outstanding Volunteer Award.

      He was preceded in death by his brother, Dr. Carroll C. Lupton of Greensboro. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Ruth Billings Lupton, of the home; a son, Harvey Arthur Lupton Jr. of Oakland, Calif.; a daughter, Anne Billings Lupton of Greensboro; brothers Dr. Emmett S. Lupton of Alamance and Lt. Col. (ret.) Frederick A. Lupton Jr. of Bowie, Md.; a sister, Carrie Lupton Murrell of Marietta, Ga.; and numerous nephews and nieces.

      The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22, 2001, at Vogler & Sons Reynolda Road Chapel. The funeral will be at 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 24, 2001, at Marvin United Methodist Church, conducted by the Rev. Patricia Suggs, pastor, and the Rev. Carroll Lupton Jr. Burial will follow at Forsyth Memorial Park. Memorials may be made to Marvin United Methodist Church, 4401 Indiana Ave., Winston-Salem, NC 27105 or the Harvey A. Lupton Scholarship, Wake Forest University School of Law, P.O. Box 7227, Reynolda Station, Winston-Salem, NC 27109-7227.
