Herman and Doris Hassinger, air crash victims

Herman and Doris Hassinger. ROYAL BRUCE MONTGOMERYHerman Hassinger, an architect, and his wife, Doris, who lived in Moorestown before moving to Block Island, R.I., died Thursday, Oct. 25, in a small-airplane crash, a family spokesman said Wednesday.

The two died of injuries from when their single-engine Beechcraft hit a light pole along I-93 in Hooksett, N.H., sending it into nearby woods. They were going to a board meeting at the private New Hampton (N.H.) School.

Mr. Hassinger, 83, a retired Coast Guard commander, had operated Herman Hassinger Architects of Moorestown.

He was known for religious architecture, including work on more than 200 churches. He designed new churches, renovated old ones, and furnished church interiors, his family said.
