Wayne Stump (WB4AHZ)
July 17, 2015
This was shared with me by his son,
"It is with deep regret that I must
report that my Dad, Wayne Stump, WB4AHZ,
passed away last Friday the 17th at
about 3:10 in the afternoon. The stroke
that he suffered on the 6th was not the
cause, but rather the symptom. He had
advanced micro vascular disease, in
plain terms the tiny blood vessels in
his brain had calcified to the point
where the oxygen in his blood could no
longer get to the brain cells and they
started dying. This was shown on the
first MRI. Dad started losing other
functions: He couldnít speak, swallow,
use his left hand, etc. They did a
second MRI Monday of last week and the
damage was much worse. Thursday evening
he was comatose, and even in this
condition we believe he was aware that
my sister Beverly was there. Friday
afternoon we made arrangements to
transfer him to a hospice center. They
were preparing him for transport when he
passed away. He did not suffer.
On the 4th of July, he was out in the
garage cutting wood on the bandsaw for
some crazy project. At almost 91 years
old, he was still active and happy until
the Lord took him to a better place.
He served in the Signal Corps of the
U.S. Army in Europe in WWII.
We will have a private memorial service,
Dad will be cremated and interned at the
Northwest Louisiana Veterans Cemetery.
Should anyone wish to donate, please
give to the one of the organizations
that train and provide service dogs to
our Wounded Warriors in Dadís honor."
