Very sorry to hear this news.

Dave was editor of the National Contest Journal for several years.  First while I was publisher and then when the ARRL took over the publication.  

He was a guy who got things done.

With sadness we pass along that Dave Pruitt, K8CC, became a Silent Key on December 29.  Dave's brother Tom, WB8VMN, reports that Dave passed away peacefully and in no pain.
Though slowed in recent years by health issues, Dave was a very significant contributor to the contesting community. He was a long time member and past president of the Mad River Radio Club, author of the NA contesting logging software, a log checker for the ARRL 10 Meter and 160 Meter contests, and chairman of the Michigan QSO Party. He built and operated, both as single op and multiop, a very competitive contest station in Ypislanti, Michigan.
Dave's obituary is at:    David Alan Pruett Obituary - Visitation & Funeral Information (uhtfuneralhome.com) The Zoom meeting mentioned there will be held at 1:00 pm EST on Monday.
