    Mike and I had been close friends since the early '60s, growing up in Alexandria, VA. He was originally licensed as WN4DVD and then WB4DVD when he upgraded to General class.

    Mike moved to the Dallas, TX area circa 1980 and received the call KD5IN. I moved from Virginia to Dallas in 1985 and we continued our close friendship. I will truly miss him.

    I'll post more details as I receive them.
