SAWE HR Member Ian (Mac) MacConochie – Obituary

Ian O. MacConochieWe are sorry to note that SAWE Hampton Roads member Mac MacConochie  passed away on June 20th of this year, 2019.   Mac was a Richard Boynton SAWE Lifetime achievement awardee as well as a Peninsula Engineer of the year.   He shared an active engineering career with us, starting at NASA in 1962. His passion for weight engineering helped sustain our chapter vitality and inspired us with his insights.  He was an active participant at local and International SAWE meetings, often accompanied by his wife Corinne “Sissy”, and family.  His work demonstrated how a lifelong interest in that as well as broader technical and human interests, contributed to a full life, and a better one for us for knowing him.

A graveside service will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, August 3, 2019 at Grace Episcopal Churchyard in Yorktown, Va.  and there will be a Celebration of Life at 3 p.m. Sunday, August 4, 2019 at Grace Community Church in  Charlottesville.   All are welcome ( details at: )
