Posted by k6jeb on May 7th, 2008

It is with extreme sadness that I report that my friend since elementary school, Paul J. Parker, WB6DHH became a silent key on April 13, 2008. Paul succumbed to pancreatic cancer.

Paul was first licensed in January 1963, WN6DHH He was a life member of the ARRL and was elected Section Communications Manager for the East Bay Section of the ARRL in 1969. He was an active member of the Mt. Diablo Radio Club for nearly 40 years where he served as an instructor and volunteer examiner, as well as assisting with the operation of the W6CX repeater and Pacificon.

Paul loved the Morse code.

Paul’s memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 10th at 1:00 pm at East Bay Fellowship in the UTurn auditorium (youth building), 2615 Camino Tassajara, Danville , CA 94506 (map) . The church phone number is (925) 736-5100.

If you wish, in lieu of sending flowers, gifts to the American Cancer Society in Paul’s memory would be appreciated.

Paul’s ashes will be spread in the Pacific Ocean under the Golden Gate Bridge and in the Sea Otter Sound, Alaska
