With a heavy heart, I have to inform our HAM community of the passing of John Cole (N1QFH, SK).
I worked with John briefly at the GCARA when I was the Secretary. He handed over the club’s website to me. He was also a very active member of the BRARA club and in MARS. John battled cancer for many years and lost the battle this week.
I also enjoyed checking into the FPTN every morning at 0700 EDT with John. John was a very positive person, always ready to help.
On behalf of the Palmetto Amateur Radio Club, I would like to express our condolences to John’s wife Beryl, and his family. John will be laid to rest in Maine, where he is from.
You will be missed and remembered by those whose lives you touched, and those are many.
Rest in peace.
