It’s been 4 months since the passing of Tom K8BTE and he is still missed here in Benzie County. He was a torch in the ARES/RACES group as he held Emergency Coordinator position working tirelessly with the fractions of public service and the local hams. He was in Arizona with his wife Mary and children Doug and Annete when he passed. Tom was a life member of the ARRL and supported it’s many programs. His memorial service is to be anounced in May and will be posted here, stay tuned.
Thanks to Rob W8REJ for heading the memorial fund to get an engrave brick with Tom’s call, to be installed at the ARRL’s terrace.
