QSPing this sad email that was received by GM3YTS:
With great sadness I have to inform you that Joe passed away today at 1400 hrs at St Annes hospital Malawi. He had not been well with a very heavy cold/chest infection for the past week, Janet his XYL is also hospitalised with a similar condition and on a drip, we await further news.
Would you please pass on the sad news to FOC family.
73, Barrie G4AHK/7Q7BJ
Joe was a long time BERU entrant who could be relied upon for many QSOs and valuable bonuses.
Many thanks Joe.
