It is with great personal sadness that I announce the passing of one of the great friends of our club and Amateur Radio in general. Jack became a Silent Key Monday afternoon. Here is information copied from the Dignity Memorial site. I am sure more information will be available at the meeting Thursday night about how we as a club can honor him, including a last call during the Sunday night Rack 6m net for which Jack acted as NCS for many years.  I will post more information when I have it.

Rest in Peace, my Friend! You will be sorely missed!
