Raymond Michael Harkins, previously of Chesapeake Beach, Maryland, passed away on December 30 at the State Veteran’s Home in Kosciusko, Mississippi. He was born in Carthage, Mississippi on June 20, 1926, the son of James and Canie Harkins. He came to Chesapeake Beach after serving his country in the United States Navy and began working at Wesley Stinnett’s Tavern. For more than 50 years, Raymond was the heart of Stinnett’s, a local landmark for good food and hospitality. His patrons loved his Southern charm and personality and he always stayed true to his Mississippi roots, spending at least a month every year in Carthage. Raymond served four years on the Chesapeake Beach Town Council and, later in life, he also sold real estate in Calvert County. He returned to Carthage at the death of his beloved wife, Shirley. He is survived by a host of nieces and nephews in Carthage as well as friends and family in Chesapeake Beach, all of whom loved this kind, gentle man.
