    FEDERALSBURG — Dr. Henry Rogers Trapnell of Federalsburg, MD passed away on Sunday, Nov. 17, 2013 at the William Hill Manor in Easton. He was 85.

    Dr. Trapnell was born May 3, 1928 in Baltimore, the son of the late Joseph Trapnell, III and Elizabeth Woollen Trapnell.

    He attended the Friends School in Baltimore where he earned four varsity letters in sports. He was an avid Boy Scout, achieving Eagle Scout at the age of 13, and was a Scout Master while in college. He attended Hobart College and the University of Virginia. During his summers in college he joined the Merchant Marine and during WW II he served as a private in the Maryland Minute Men. After three years of college Dr. Trapnell entered the University of Maryland Medical School in 1950. While in medical school in spare time he worked as an insurance agent. During his second and third years he worked at Church Home and Hospital at night. The next two summers he worked at Beebe Hospital in Lewes, DE, and the fourth year at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore.
    Upon graduating in 1954 he entered the Navy, serving one year at Portsmouth Naval Hospital in Virginia. He then transferred to Pensacola, FL where he earned his Navy flight training and received his wings. He enjoyed flying, especially helicopters, two engine, and four engine planes. He was transferred to Seattle Naval Air as flight surgeon for NAS and the 13th Naval District.

    After his discharge from the Navy in 1958 he came to Federalsburg where he served the public for 41 ½ years and retired from practice in 1999. Dr. Trapnell enjoyed seeing his patients, and especially obstetrics where he delivered over 1900 babies. He was “on call 24-7” making house calls day and night.
