A memorial service for Horace Hance Jr., an engineer at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory who had retired earlier from the Bendix Radio Division in Towson, will be held at 8 p.m. today at the Faith Presbyterian Church, 5400 Loch Raven Blvd.
Mr. Hance, who was 70, died of cancer Sunday at the home of a daughter in Gamber.
He worked at the Hopkins laboratory in Howard County for nearly 10 years, having retired from Bendix after many years there. Born in Baltimore, he was a 1939 graduate of the Polytechnic Institute. During World War II, he served as a navigator aboard U.S. bombers in Europe. He was recalled during the Korean War.
He is survived by two daughters, Deborah L. Schinault of Gamber and Marjorie A. Eberlein of Stewartstown, Pa.; a sister, Virginia R. Showe of Ellicott City; and two grandsons.
