Stumbled across this during a Google search for information on Grandpa Louie's call sign. (should have started with Mom
) After Carlsbad, the family made stops in many places before he retired from Carbide in the mid 70's. My memory tells me that he was still active up until he passed away in 1978 in West Virginia... not far from where his Ham hobby started. Although he attempted to interest one of the grandkids..it took over 30 years for it to "stick" and I've recently been studying for my Technician License.
This is never the response anyone wants but sometimes its still nice to know that loved ones are remembered.
