My grandfather, David (W6VNQ) passed away on February 13th, 2019. He bacame very ill starting with gout in his left foot and came down with other issues such as AFib. He was set to have surgery to fix the AFib, but unfortunatly, the Eliquis blood thinners did the opposite of what it was supposed to do. He suffered many mini strokes and a major one. We decided to bring him home to a more comfortable place to pass. He peacefully passed at 2:30 AM, leaving behind a son, a step son (my father), 4 grand children (including me), and 1 great grand-child. I will try to carry on his legacy in amateur radio as KN6VNQ, but no one will top his skills within the hobby, he was a master in VHF/UHF contesting. I decided to get my license 6 months after his passing and build from the ground up. Grandpa Dave, I love you and I miss you. I wish I would've gotten my license sooner so that we could've made our own little contests. 73 and I hope you're doing much better wherever you are.
