Bill White (K6TXO)
November 20, 2010
Bill White was the pastor for theFirst Baptist Church
in Stanton, California. The church was later known
as the Anaheim Baptist Temple. Pastor White
helped me get my Novice licensee in 1969.
Many years gone by, I lost contact with Pastor White
and many friends. My own fault there but I never
forgot Pastor White for all of his guidance and help.
Anyway, years later I moved out of California and
into "7" region, I decided to honor my friend and
pastor with a change in my call sign. Pastor Bill
White held an Advanced ham license as K6TXO. He
also had a Private pilot license as well as
Commercial and Airframe & Powerplant rating.
Pastor White taught me many things including most
of my radio, electronics and a bit of aircraft service
and flying. When my wife and I permanently moved
to Idaho in 2009, I changed my own "6" call sign to
K7TXO when I moved to Idaho in region 7.
I learned that K6TXO became an SK on 20
November, 2010. Even though I had not returned to
Southern California over the years to visit with
Pastor White, I truly do miss my friend, teacher,
mentor and pastor.
