I am sorry I only just noticed this or I would have acknowledged it sooner. Eric, my dad Fred Beavan, and Vern Purcell were great friends and played golf almost every day back in the seventies. Sadly they are all gone now. My wife and I visited Eric 3 years ago and it was then I learned about his involvement in protecting eastern Canada from Uboats...a lovely man. Our condolences.

I knew Eric, VE3GGO, for our many years as members of the Scarborough Amateur Radio Club. He was a great enthusiast of Canadian Ham Radio, and was known far and wide from his call sign of VE3GGO or "Golf, Golf, Ontario". He enjoyed making Awards for hams to chase and the administration of them.

All the family should know that the Hams in Scarborough share your loss at time.

On behalf of Scarborough Club and myself, may he Rest In Peace. 73 OM, you are missed by many.

Sorry to read that Eric passed away. I remember him well when we used to talk on the radio and I would read him some of my poems. Great times! EA1GIZ
