Good, Bill (WA6VLJ)

May 21, 2003

Mr. William Good, or Bill Good, WA6VLJ passed away on May 21, 2003, at about 1:35PM. He was fighting cancer for a year, after being diagnosed. Bill was very intellectual, especially when it came to amateur radio. After hearing about him, I had the pleasure of working with him at a radio repair business for a few months, and got to have many conversations on radio theory, circuit design, antenna theory, and just things in general. As a technician myself, I must say that Bill was probably, no definetly, the most intelligent person when it came to R.F. engineering. I, and many of us amateurs in the Southern California area that knew him, and others that were personal friends of his, and even more that knew him for his knowledge all over the country will miss him, and remember him. God Bless him, and may he rest in peace.

Bill was a unique man. His love of radio was only surpassed by his kindness. First ran into bill in 1969, in the ole CB days. It was Bill that caused me to become a licensed amateur. God bless you.
