    I regret to report that long-time member of my club, the Radio Club of Tacoma, Dave Andresen W7HTJ passed away on Tuesday June 23, 2020 after a lengthy illness. He will be very much missed by his fellow club members. Dave was a good friend and a great guy, with a generous spirit and always a kind word.

    I'll post further details as soon as they are available.

    OH, CRAP! I can't put into words how I feel about losing another fellow ham, and a Radio Club of Tacoma member.

    We lost another...

    Dave was a regular at the RCT club meetings. A fine fellow and always ready to have a nice chat about anything, but especially antennas. Dave spoke more than one language and could often be found chatting in Russian With another of our club members who was from there. Always enjoyed talking to him and I will miss him. It was not totally unexpected though, since he had been working thru some health challenges this year.

    So... Dave, see you in that big ham shack in the sky some day, in the meantime, we will not forget you!

    David Andresen

    David Carl Andresen, age 78, of Lakewood, WA passed away peacefully at home on June 23, 2020. He was diagnosed with brain cancer in early February and elected to spend his final time at home where he was happiest. He was an intellectual mind who was always up for debating politics, discussing history, or spending time on his varied interests; including building electronics, being a HAM radio aficionado, translating and publishing Russian Folk stories, and gardening. The world has truly lost a gifted mind. He is survived and missed by many loving family members, including his mother, Mildred Andresen.

    David's wishes were to be cremated and buried next to his beloved wife, Tish. Due to the state of affairs with COVID, a small family service will follow in the future. David's request in lieu of flowers was to encourage you to do something nice for yourself or others in his honor.
