Roger MacConnell King died peaceably on Sunday, Jan. 20, 2013, in Virginia Beach. He was 91.

Roger was born and raised through high school in Hollis, N.Y. He called Chatham, N.J. home for a few years, when his parents, Samuel R. King and Mabel MacConnell King, moved there. Roger began college at Norwich University, class of 1944. His college was interrupted by service in World War II. He served with the Fifth Airdrome Squadron of the 8th Air Force, in the European Theater, including in Ireland, England and Germany. After World War II, he finished college at Rutgers University, class of 1948.

Almost the entirety of Roger’s professional career was with the Insurance Company of North America (INA, now part of CIGNA), in Philadelphia, with a short stint in Austin, Texas, where his two sons, Jeff and Neil, were born. On retirement, Roger moved to Rockport, which he loved.

Roger is survived by his sons, Jeff of Virginia Beach, and Neil of Norfolk, Va., and his grandchildren Katherine and Kendall of Virginia Beach, and Kaitlin, Kyle and Evan of Norfolk.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Owls Head Transportation Museum (Volunteer Support), PO Box 277, Owls Head, ME, 04854, or ohtm.org. Roger volunteered there and thoroughly enjoyed its great collection and shows of antique cars and airplanes.
