CAMBRIDGE - Cornell Eugene Wing departed this life on Monday, Feb. 10, 2014 at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C. Born Oct. 9, 1957 in Cambridge, he was the son of James Wing, Sr. and the late Anna Mae Stanley Wing. Cornell attended the public schools of Dorchester County and was a graduate of Cambridge Senior High School Class of 1975. He attended Salisbury State College for two years after graduation and then joined the United States Army pursuing a career in biomedical equipment repair. He worked at T.J. Stratton Company for five years repairing medical equipment. He left there to work at Skil-Bosche Power Tools as a Certified Service Technician, also for five years.
