Paul Obert, K8PO, passed yesterday.  

After a long run of cancer remission and despite a brief ray of hope in
early September he had continued downward the last few weeks until a
mercifully peaceful passing.  

I'd gotten to know Paul well in the last few years as a guest operator at
his Maine station.  He was a true gentleman, thoughtful and of high
integrity.  In many ways he was a man without guile.  He was a perfectionist
in the quantitative areas of life - engineering a superb station - while
gracious, generous and unassuming in the personal realm.  He was quick to
praise others and recognize their skills. 

He will be deeply missed.

Scott, K0DQ
