I met John when I joined the South Pickering Amateur Radio Club. SPARC gave John opportunities to practice his technical electronic skill. He repaired many of my radios. I have known John for more than 25 years. He did not drive. I wouldu pick him up and we went to the various Hamfests together. It was a great time to talk and learn more about him. He was very proud of his Father. John was an electronic genius. We have lost a good man, a good friend. 73 John de Hart VA3OU sk

We are very sorry to hear of John's passing. We were fortunate to get to know him this past summer, and grew fond of him, and will miss his presence.

Our sincerest condolences to the Jan Family.
