Craig E. S. Hihn


Craig Edmund Steuart Hihn, a certified public accountant who operated his own firm, died Sunday of cardiac arrest at his home in Fells Point. He was 47.

Mr. Hihn, who had offices in Fells Point and Towson, specialized in tax and financial consulting and compliance for businesses and individuals.

Before opening his own practice in 1991, he had been a partner and senior tax director for nearly 20 years at Stegman & Co., a Baltimore accounting firm.

"To say that he was at the top of his profession only scratches the surface even though he was highly regarded by his clients and peers," said his sister, Susan Tifft of Towson. "Beneath the veneer of business competence was a quiet gentleness that endeared him to everyone."

Mr. Hihn was active in community affairs and historic preservation. He enjoyed sailing on the Chesapeake Bay and visiting Key West, Fla.

Born and raised on Woodbine Avenue in Towson, he was a 1965 graduate of Towson High School and earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Baltimore in 1974.

A memorial service was set for 10 a.m. today at Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens Chapel, 200 E. Padonia Road, Timonium.

Other survivors include his parents, Louis E. and Rosalind Hihn of Towson; a niece, Amanda Tifft of Towson. Lowry N. Barnes, a retired Carroll County trial lawyer, died Friday at his home in Littlestown, Pa., of complications from diabetes. He was 65.

The former Silver Run resident retired in 1992 after a 38-year legal career. Before moving to Littlestown, he had offices in Taneytown for a number of years.

His professional memberships included the Carroll County and Maryland bar associations. Born in Fayette County, Pa., he moved to Baltimore as a child and was a 1946 graduate of Sparrows Point High School. He earned his law degree from the University of Baltimore in 1954.

A memorial service was set for 7:30 p.m. today at the Fletcher Funeral Home, 254 E. Main St., Westminster.

He is survived by his wife of 46 years, the former Ruth Carper; a son, Jonathan E. Barnes of Littlestown; three daughters, Patricia L. Blank of Westminster, Laurie E. Gray of Abbottstown, Pa., and Julie B. Maher of York, Pa.; a brother, Curtis V. Barnes of Rosedale; and seven grandchildren.

Memorial donations may be made to Lutheran Home Care Services, 1075 Old Harrisburg Road, Gettysburg, Pa. 17325.

Lois B. McKinnon


Lois Bettie McKinnon, a retired seamstress in clothing factories, died Thursday of heart failure at Johns Hopkins Hospital. She was 81 and lived in Columbia.

A native of Wellville, Va., the former Lois Bettie Smith moved to Baltimore as a young woman. She recently had attended Full Gospel Emancipation Life Center, a church in Odenton.

Services were set for 11 a.m. today at Highway Christian Church, Homewood and Chase streets in Baltimore.

Her husband, Angus McKinnon, died in 1957. She is survived by two daughters, Jessie B. Nelson of Columbia and Fannie Thomas of Owings Mills; a son, Nathaniel McKinnon of Cumberland; a sister, Madeline Forrest of Baltimore; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Robert E. Donegan

Shipping executive

Robert Emmet Donegan, a retired shipping executive, died Saturday of heart failure at St. Agnes Hospital. He was 89 and lived in Charlestown Retirement Community in Catonsville.

Mr. Donegan retired in 1974 from Ramsay Scarlett & Co., steamship agents, where he had worked since 1962. For many years before that, he had worked for the A. H. Bull Co., freight forwarders. The Baltimore native was a 1924 graduate of Loyola High School. He was a resident of Hamilton for many years.
