    Remember my high school room mate at Judson, Scottsddale, AZ, was
    also a ham / amateur radio operator. We enjoyed hamming from our dorm room.
    Sad to learn March 2005 of his passing. He was a great fellow and friend back 44
    years ago.

    Thank you, Ev. I didn’t even know this existed. I just ran across it looking for something else. Genes daughter, Page Carapetyan.
