Fritz S. Bergner (DL7VRO)

December 16, 2001

Dear friends, it is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Fritz Stefan Bergner, DL7VRO. Last sunday (Dec.16th, 2001) Fritz became a silent key. He died unexpected and for everybody very suprisingly. He is survived by Gerda (DL7VYL) his wife, 2 kids, 3 grandchildren and his son in-law Roy (DL7UBA). Fritz was one of our best friends and will be deeply missed. Most of you know him as an engaged and reliable QSL-manager for about 50 callsigns. But he also was an active DXer with more than 325 countries confirmed, holder of 5-Band-DXCC and a successful contester. He organized and took part in a couple of DXpeditions (e.g. TN2M/TN4U, 8Q7IO, ED8CMT) and IOTA activities (DL, OZ, SP) even while he was sitting in a wheelchair. Everybody who knew him personally will agree he was a great personality and a man with heart and charisma. Rest in peace Birgit (DL7IQ) & Holger (DL7IO)
