Desmond (Des) Yong (N4DY, 8R1Y)
January 4, 2017
Des was well known in amateur radio circles in NW Florida. He was an accomplished cw operator and message handling (traffic) expert. Des immigrated from Guyana in the early 60's after serving in the British Army as a radio technician as well as working in the commercial airline industry. He also worked for the Florida Forestry Service until his retirement. He was a mentor to many and a good friend. He will be greatly missed.
