Raymond D. Lochner, 72, Navy commander

Raymond D. Lochner, a retired Navy lieutenant commander who lived in Annapolis, died Wednesday of prostate cancer at Meridian Health Center near his home. He was 72.

Born in Los Angeles in 1923, Mr. Lochner joined the Navy on his 17th birthday and qualified for Naval Academy Preparatory School after two years of active duty. He graduated from the Naval Academy in 1948.

Mr. Lochner served in the supply corps and saw action during the Korean War, was stationed in Annapolis and Panama, and participated when the Marines landed in Beirut in 1959.

After leaving the service, he and his wife, Jean Tucker Lochner, settled in Annapolis, where he helped found several engineering businesses before going to work for Westinghouse Electric Co.

He was employed by Westinghouse for seven years as an independent contractor and 11 years as a full-time employee before he retired in 1991.

Mr. Lochner was a member of the Society of Logistics Engineers and was a certified professional logistician. In his spare time, he enjoyed woodworking, gardening and maintaining his waterfront home.

He was particularly proud that his daughters chose Navy careers and that one, Lt. Cmdr. Jane T. Lochner of Bowie, is a Naval Academy graduate.

In addition to his wife and daughter, he is survived by two sons, Raymond D. Lochner Jr. of Frederick and Jay D. Lochner of Baltimore; a second daughter, Navy Engineman Chief Ruth A. L. Lambert of Lexington Park; and two brothers, Earl D. Lochner of Largo, Fla., and Ralph D. Lochner of Mountain Home, Ark.; and five grandchildren.

A memorial service is planned for 10 a.m. tomorrow at St. Andrew's Chapel at the Naval Academy.

Memorial contributions may be made to the American Foundation of Urological Disease, 300 W. Pratt St., Suite 401, Baltimore, 21201.
