We are saddened to report the loss of KK4INH, whom we knew as "J.W." and whose favorite phonetic statement of his call sign suffix was "I Need Help!"  J.W. passed away on Sunday, April 29, 2018.

Here's the info from today's Winston-Salem Journal:

Hate to hear of J.W.'s passing and for me personally I'll truly miss his snappy comebacks and sometimes the extended one liners yeah boy.Fortunately I did have a chance to enjoy a QSO with him while he was hospitalized before things took a turn for the worst and will remember that for sometime to come.

73's J.W.
