From John Koren VA3JK:
It is with the deepest regret, that I inform the Scarborough Amateur Radio Club, that one of your members, VE3TQU, Edgar Heinen has passed away suddenly on February 10.2022. I helped Edgar get his amateur radio licence at CBC, he had a lifelong passion for radio, especially short wave listening and local amateur radio activity on 2m and 70 cm. He passed away without any kin, and I do not know what his final wishes were. May he rest in Eternal Peace with God.
Ken VE3FIT just called to inform me that Gord VE3CNA has become a Silent Key. Gord served as President for several years and was our club archivist. We will miss him immensely.
