Not sure what to say?

Somehow I missed the announcement of his passing. He was special to me because I was the first person to intercept his 2 meter HAM radio broadcast from the Space Shuttle Columbia. I received a coveted QRL card from him (W5LFL) after submitting my report to the ARRL.

My condolences to his family. I will never...
