Services for Mr. Roman, who was 38 and had his home in Arbutus, were to be conducted at 11:30 a.m. today at the Arbutus United Methodist Church, Shelbourne Road and Maple Avenue.

He had worked for Westinghouse since 1981 and was teaching customers abroad how to operate equipment the company made.

Before joining Westinghouse, he served six years in the Air Force.

The former June Horner was a native of Cape Charles, Va., and a graduate of Cape Charles High School and the Norfolk General Hospital nursing school.
