    On Sunday, 26 hams were working as Communicators for our I Love A
    Clean San Diego Beach cleanup. All dedicated people. One ham, like
    many others, has been at everyone of the cleanups since we began
    providing communications almost 10 years ago. This day would be
    different though. This day, we lost a friend. Walt Davis, WA6ODQ was
    working the event at Dog Beach, and some time during the event he
    became a silent key.

    We became aware of this after the event, when
    Walt failed to check in with the events results. After sending
    another ham to check on Walt, we found out the sad news.

    Walt passed
    away, doing what he loved most, ham radio, and public service!! Walt
    will be sorely missed thru out the San Diego ham community. In memory
    to Walt, I invite you to send me some brief comments about your
    feelings towards Walt, and I will compile them, and present them to
    his family at a later date.

    Thanks much Walt, we will miss you. Best 73.
