Mr. Willingham, who was 64, died Sunday of heart failure at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Born in the Laurel area, he lived most of his life in Baltimore, graduating from Forest Park High School.

Forty years ago, he became a mechanic's helper with the company at 2113 E. Oliver St., which manufactures uniforms under contract for such customers as the Girl Scouts. Ten years ago, he became its owner and president.

He served in the Navy in the 1940s.

He was active in Boumi Temple's Camel Wheels, Highlandtown Exchange Club, Royal Golf Club, Towson Investment Club and Boumi Golf Club.

He loved to travel and was an avid baseball fan.

He is survived by his wife, the former Ruth Shirley Reckenberger, whom he married in 1949; two daughters, Deborah Bentley and Pamela Leonard, both of Towson; a son, Robert M. Willingham Jr. of Baltimore; his mother, Thelma Willingham, and a sister, Bettye Jane Agnor, both of Salisbury; and three granddaughters.

The family suggested memorial donations to the Johns Hopkins Hospital Cardiac Research Fund.
