Dave Simpson (WI3Y)
December 1, 2015
It is with a heavy heart that I need to announce
the passing of Dave Simpson WI3Y, who became
a Silent Key this morning. As many of you are
aware, Dave had been fighting ALS for the last
year or so, but remained active on our weekly 2m
net until recently (thanks to the wonderful efforts
of Bill K3ZMA). Dave is also the namesake, and
inaugural recipient, of our newly created
Outstanding Ham of the Year award, which was
presented to him in October.
In addition to being a proficient CW operator,
Dave also took part in many Field Day activities
with WARC, as well as helping Mark AA3K with
his efforts as a test station for WRTC 2014. In
addition to his ham radio adventures, Dave was
also an accomplished musician, published
playwright, and writer; a true Renaissance man.
Dave's wife Emily was at his side, today as
always. Please keep them in your thoughts at this
time. Dave will be sorely missed, but his legacy
will endure. May he rest in Peace.
