Friends Remembered Home | Friends Detail
William H. "Willy" Abbott (WN7NAD)
Bill and I were best friends at West High in Phoenix, from 1967 to 1971, spending time in Army ROTC and Electronics Classes all 4 years. We got our Novice licenses together, WN7NDA and WN7NDA, made officer rank at the same time, rode to school together, and were planning to grow old together. Bill succumbed to Leukemia while on medical care at the Army hospital in El Paso, lifted from Viet Nam in the middle of his ASA tour there. He was a forward deployed code interceptor, and often told me via tape and letters of the Agent Orange spraying all around him. Uncle Sam got him, and I am still fighting to get his name added to the wall.
I will never forget, and always miss you, Bill.
