Terry Hashman (KB5B (FORMERLY KC5EGC))

July 3, 2011

I met Terry during my tour at Fort Hood, Texas. We first spoke to Terry on the CB band and later on the amateur bands. Terry was known as "The Big Man." And that wasn't just his nickname. Terry was a tall fellow. somewhat imposing to some, but once you got to know him, you knew he was just a gentle giant. He was always willing to help people and a good operator to talk to as well. I'm glad I had the opportunity to known him.

I met Terry back in 2002 on one of our local Tucson Arizona 440 UHF repeater systems. A fun dude to chat with, always had a positive disposition and outlook concerning fellow Hams. I recall doing some slow scan Amateur Television experimenting on a local 2-meter simplex channel a few times with Terry. That was a fun experience! He often talked about his days in Texas and I at times felt he missed being there. I did meet Terry once in person at a local Ham picnic a couple of years ago while chowing down on a freshly cooked hot dog and you could tell his heart was into his fellow community Ham buddies. I will remember the "Marana Dude", the nickname I gave him as a solid and trustworthy friend, at least I thought so.

I met Terry long ago in the 90's as me and my buddy Kevin (K5KEV) used to go out on several foxhunts in Killeen, Texas. Terry's humor was second to none. He was the type of individual to push boundry limits just because he wanted to see you and everyone else laugh. Terry was a "BIG MAN" with an even bigger heart. I miss him terribly and will do so until the day I get to see him again working DX from up above. Terry is sorely missed. Rest well my friend and thank you for years of laughter, ham radio squabbles, and echolink tie ups.
