September 2nd 2002
My friend and Elmer past away September 2nd 2002, he was 86 years old. He is burred at the Fair Hill Cemetery in Cameron, OK . His call was WD5GMA A holder of the advanced class licensee. I was between jobs in 1983 so I had extra time and he was glad to offer his skills and knowledge. In his retirement years. To help me with my Novice ticket. LeRoy. did a lot of wood work. He made my new born son a wood wagon with rolling wheels just like a red rider except no nails or metal were used. All wood. I still have it to day and will have tell my dying day. Mr. Vest has company, another friend of mine Howard L Bitsko W5CFA is also burred in the same cemetery he was also a Advanced Class Ham. "May Jesus Christ Give them Rest".

What a great memorial, Doug. I never knew these gentlemen,
but your memorial makes me wish that I had. Who among us
doesn't need teachers, mentors and friends no matter how
old we are....?
