Homer Huddleston, N5UN (formerly W5TLW) died on January 12, 1998. Homer was originally from Wichita Falls, Texas and at the time of his death lived in Plano, Texas. He is survived by a son and daughter.
Homer graduated from Southern Methodist University with a batchelor's degree in Electrical Engineering and a Master's degree in business.

I'm proud to have known Homer and proud to have been assigned his call.
