Kenneth Hooper, antique car buff, owned Hooper's Garage in Castine

KENNEBUNK Kenneth Hooper grew up at Hooper's Garage, a family-owned business in Castine, and spent his entire adult life working there.
As a boy, Mr. Hooper often visited his father at the garage, which was a Ford dealership when his father opened it in 1913. They worked together on repairs and prepared cars for sale.
Mr. Hooper took over the dealership in 1947 and continued the work his father started for several more decades.
Mr. Hooper, who lived at Huntington Common in Kennebunk, died Sunday at Southern Maine Medical Center in Biddeford. He was 83.
Mr. Hooper passed on the lessons he learned from his father to his own children.
"We spent time a lot with our father at the car dealership," said his son, William F. Hooper of Brandon, Fla. "The business was such an important part of our lives. We practically grew up there, too. In our teenage years, we ran the gas pump, and he taught us to do minor repair work."
Mr. Hooper knew cars, but he also knew how to treat customers. He was a respected businessman who always offered a fair price.
"He knew cars like the back of his hand," his son said. "He always felt it was important to treat people fairly and with respect. He had a lot of integrity. Having a business in a small community, you need to have integrity to survive."
Mr. Hooper graduated from Castine High School in 1937 and worked at the family business until his retirement in 1982.
"He was sad to see the dealership close," said William Hooper. "He invested so much of his life in the business, and it was difficult for him to let it go, but he needed to retire."
Mr. Hooper and his wife of 57 years, Carolyn, moved from Castine to Kennebunk three years ago to be closer to their daughters.
After his retirement, the Hoopers enjoyed traveling. They wintered on Marco Island in southwestern Florida for almost 10 years. They visited friends and family during their stays there and enjoyed going to the beach together.
During his retirement, Mr. Hooper never missed a chance to go to an antique car show, an interest that took him throughout Maine and Florida. Not surprisingly, he was partial to Fords, new or antique.
Mr. Hooper was a member of the Castine Grange for 60 years, and a former chairman of the Castine Water District.
Besides his wife and son, he is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Ray (Karen) Harthorne of Sanford, and Mrs. David (Phyllis) Pierce of Wells, and eight grandchildren.
A graveside service will be held at 1:30 p.m. Thursday at Castine Cemetery

Richard Morgan Moroney, Jr.

SANFORD - Richard Morgan Moroney, Jr., died Oct. 21, 2002 at his home. He was born Oct. 19, 1929 in New York City, to Richard and Elizabeth Moroney. He grew up in Brooklyn with one sister, Elizabeth. After graduating from Brooklyn Polytechnic High School, he attended MIT and received his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering in 1951. He immediately joined the U.S. Air Force and was trained as a fighter pilot. He served in the Korean War as part of the 334th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, where he was wingman to jet ace Pete Fernandez. Afterwards he was a test pilot and Flight Gunnery Instructor at Nellis Air Force Base. He earned the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Air Medal with one Oakleaf Cluster for his service to his country. After his discharge in 1955, he returned to MIT, where he earned two advanced degrees in Electrical Engineering. He then changed departments to Mathematics, and earned his PhD in Mathematics in 1961. He taught mathematics at MIT for several years, during which time he co-authored a textbook on probability (Introduction to Probability Theory by James McCord and Richard Moroney). During the 1960's, Dr. Moroney had a successful consulting practice in Boston. In 1970, he joined Raytheon in Bedford, Mass., where he worked as Consulting Scientist on advanced missile systems, including the Patriot missile. He retired from Raytheon in 1979. Shortly thereafter, he started a computer software and hardware consulting business, CAC of Sanford (Maine). Among other projects, he developed a Remote Sensing Unit to record seismological data in remote areas, using then brand-new mini-computer technology. In 1959, Dick married Joan Elizabeth Clark, also an MIT graduate, in Boston. They had three children, daughters, Anne Elizabeth in 1960, Jean Florence in 1963, and a son, Richard III in 1965. The family moved to Sanford in 1970. Throughout the 1970's, Dick commuted from Sanford to Bedford in his own single-engine Yankee airplane. In the mid-1990s he and his wife started wintering in North Fort Myers, Fla. Throughout his life, Dick developed many keen interests. As a youth, he learned many languages, including German, French, Latin, Japanese, Swahili, and Bengali--the last chosen for its unusual linguistic properties. After he retired he learned Arabic. Always a wit, he claimed that as an undergraduate at MIT, he majored in bridge and minored in sailing. He earned varsity letters in both sailing and fencing. During the 1960's, he raced Star boats out of the Winthrop (Massachusetts) Yacht Club, once qualifying for the North American championship. Later in life he took up windsurfing. He was a lifetime ham radio operator, W1ERW, who was certified as copying Morse code at 40 words per minute. He built his own rigs and ran the Maine Pine Tree Net on Friday nights for several years in the early 80's. Recently he took up skeet shooting, and was a member of shooting clubs in Maine and Florida. Dick was an avid game-player throughout his life. In addition to playing chess, bridge, and board games, he used his computer skills to develop elaborate Dungeons & Dragons adventures for the family to play together. He returned to tournament bridge in the 1990's with his wife, Liz. He played actively in clubs in Maine and Florida, and became a Bronze Life Master. He is survived by his wife, Joan Elizabeth (Clark) Moroney of Sanford; three children, Anne Moroney of New York City, Jean (and Harry) Binswanger of New York City, Richard (and Karen) Moroney of Princeton, New Jersey; and a grandchild, Elsa Elizabeth Moroney. The family will hold a gathering to remember him at the Heald Family Center, 574 Main Street, Springvale, from 2-4 p.m., on Saturday, Oct. 26. In remembrance of his lifetime love of reading, the family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to: the library of your choice. Richard M. Moroney, Jr.
