As reported by Dick K3ITH 28 June 2006

It is with deep sadness that I report our good friend and long time PARA supporter, Dave Zollers, K3HLN, passed away late yesterday afternoon, Tuesday, June 27, 2006. He had suffered a heart attach last Friday and was being treated in the hospital. Dave would have been 62 this coming Friday. Many of you recall talking with Dave as he drove around the Delaware Valley taking care of local traffic signals and equipment. Dave also was a trainer and certified instructor for traffic signal repairs. He leaves behind his wife Sandra, three daughters, and two grandchildren. Dave was very involved with his grandchildren; active with their scout troops, fishing, computing, and plus many other activities.

An amateur radio operator since 1959, Dave just upgraded to Extra Class about 10-days ago. He was an ARRL Life Member, charter member and past President of the Philadelphia Area Repeater Association (PARA), energetic on their Technical Committee, and worked with RACES in Montgomery and Chester Counties. Dave was also a member of The Rooster Net (3990 MHz) and several other local ham radio organizations.

Arrangements have not yet been finalized.

Sympathy cards may be sent to his address listed in the Callbook.
