Gord Gault VE3UFF, SK


Gordon Gault VE3UFF became a Silent Key on Sunday, April 14, 2013, a few days before his 91st birthday. He was a veteran of World War II (RCAF) and a long-time member of SARC. Gord worked at General Electric for many years, and was also a member of the Toronto Society of Model Engineers and Toronto FM Communications Society.

He was also my neighbour, and the man who introduced me to amateur radio and the club...I'll miss him.
