Graham Manly Eubank, 81, of Johns Island, South Carolina, husband of Janet Hall Eubank, entered into eternal rest, surrounded by family on Saturday, October 28, 2017. A Celebration of Life will be held Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 2 p.m. at Bethel United Methodist Church at 57 Pitt Street, Charleston, SC. Immediately following the service, there will be a reception at the Carolina Yacht Club. Arrangements by J. HENRY STUHR, INC. DOWNTOWN CHAPEL.

Manly was born on October 10, 1936 in Henderson, NC, son of the late Reverend and Mrs. Graham Stanford Eubank. After graduating from Fayetteville High School, he earned a Bachelor of Arts from Wofford College in 1958. While at Wofford he was president of Kappa Alpha Order. He then served as a Lieutenant in the US Army. In 1969 he moved his family to Charleston where he founded Palmetto Ford Inc.

Manly was very active in the local community, serving on the Board of Directors of the Star Gospel Mission; Chairman and Founding Member of CresCom Bank; President of the South Carolina Automobile Dealers Association; President of the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce; Commodore of the Carolina Yacht Club, and Chairman of the SC Governors Cup Billfishing Series Advisory Board. He was also a longterm member of the Hibernian Society, the Charleston Club, and the Country Club of Charleston. Manly received many awards, including South Carolina Automobile Dealer of the Year and Time Magazine's Quality Dealer of the Year. Throughout his life he served the church in various capacities, most recently as an Elder at Johns Island Presbyterian Church.

Manly gave of himself often and freely. Family, friends, and coworkers all reaped the benefits of his advice and positive outlook. He never rested on past achievement, always looking forward to new ideas and ways to engage with the world around him. Though many will remember Manly as a gifted storyteller, able to draw in a large crowd with tales of days past, his most beloved time was spent relaxing on his porch swing with family, looking out over the creek.

He is survived by his wife of 39 years, Janet Hall Eubank; two daughters Burnam Eubank of Mt. Pleasant and Elizabeth Eubank of Lugoff, SC, and one son, Graham M. Eubank, Jr. and his wife Becky of Sullivan's Island; three sisters, Lynne Gregory of Charlotte, NC, Betty Early and her husband Doyle of High Point, NC, and Mariah Kemp and her husband Ron of Greenville, NC; two grandchildren, Terrill and Gray Eubank; and many nieces and nephews.

Memorials may be made to Star Gospel Mission, 474 Meeting Street, Charleston, SC 29403 or The Dr. Graham S. Eubank '33 Endowed Scholarship Fund, Wofford College, Office of Advancement, 429 N Church Street, Spartanburg, SC 29203.
