Denny Herman (N8ACF)
Dec. 21, 2014
Denny passed away from cancer the day
after his 63rd birthday, having only
enjoyed retirement for less than a
year. He and a group of other hams
went to Dayton every year since 1977.
We had been getting multiple spots in
the flea market for many years, and as
a drag racer Denny was well prepared.
He had a clandestine grill we used to
cook food for many years and a propane
infrared heater that we used in the
canopy on those sleeting, freezing
days when the hamfest was in April.
People would walk past and come in
just because they felt the heat
radiating through the canopy opening.
Whatever works. :-)
In 2014 he brought his clunker
motorhome that we parked in the
spaces. Since I went down and back
with him I paid for the gas there and
back. It cost me about 50 cents a mile
and four quarts of oil but it was fun.
And then in August his health fell
apart and four months later he was
Please remember that tomorrow is
promised to no one and do the things
you want to while you're still able.

Ray, what a great tribute to a friend lost too soon. I have been an inside vendor at Dayton for a few years. I think I've been missing out on the fun!
Cheers to you, Ray and his family
