The world lost another great ham this morning.  Walter Marshall, W7SE,
became a SK today.  Walt's XYL, Dolores, let me know that he passed away at
home a few hours ago.  Walt had suffered from cancer for the past few years.
I was fortunate to have spent last weekend with Walt and Dolores, where we
had a wonderful visit recalling our many years of friendship.  


Walt was a Navy veteran, and retiree from Aramco where he worked in Houston
and Saudi Arabia.  Following retirement from Aramco, Walt and Dolores moved
to Walt's "dream QTH" outside of Laramie, Wyoming.  Walt had a formidable
antenna farm, contest station and impressive woodworking shop.  Walt also
raised and raced champion fly-ball dogs.  Walt had a long ham radio history
as a DX'er, contester, and low-band enthusiast.  Walt operated from HZ1AB
during his years in Saudi, and in 1998, was a member of the 3B7RF Dxpedition
to St. Brandon.  In 2014, he was on the support team for WRTC2014, where he
manned his impressive field kitchen at the NR5M/W2GD station.  


Walt and his "Wyoming multiplier" will be greatly missed by many in the ham


73, George Wagner, K5KG
