I never knew him personally, but by his manners he was obviously a gentleman. We I came back to ham radio in 1993 aprox, he was running the LAZY DX NET, saturday and sundays afternoons on 14.184, during two hours stations from all the world popped out from the noise. Just hearing him I learnt all about ham-radio behaviour, I spent a lot o time listenin him and playing with my beam to catch tne new DX-station made present. His patience, his mastering of the frecuency, the warms greetings he gave/received from all the corners of the world, had something magic for me (I never have listened such ordered an polite ham reunion). Of course it gave me many "new-ones", as did not keep any QSL card from my previous ham activity. In the latter times I noticied that his interest was more focused to chat with his friends spreaded world arround, than in working DX, later I understood thas was his way to say farewell to every body,(when he knew his illness). I miss hearing "THIS IS GOLF THREE MUCH TO LAZY LAZY FOR THE LAZY DX NET,....DO WE HAVE ANY DX-STATIONS,...PLEASE COME NOW..."

Indeed. He will be much remembered. I used to call into his net on 14184. His 'Much To Lazy' will be remembered. I recall getting back from hospital after an emergency surgery and spoke with him. The news that he did not have much to live caught me off gaurd. Then 14184 went silent to be resurrected by a few hams who were celebrating his time on radio. When i gave my call H5ANX, they told me that i was on his friends list and was told he had passed away. He will be remembered fondly. May he have many DX whereever he is.
