I just found this in another list I subscribe to. I know some of you have worked Dave in the past.
His previous call was *WA5QVS in Amarillo.
Thanks to Gene/WA5ETK for posting this.
I last heard Dave on the air, within the last couple of weeks. Great guy.
Some of you may have had QSOs with David Henville, W5UY. He is now a SK.
This obit was printed in today's newspaper:
