Adrian W4PSH, FLAM Luncheon June 2017


From Sandy, Adrian’s wife (December 31. 2017):

“We’ve known for a while that Adrian has had stage 4 pancreatic cancer and we had planned on telling Adrian’s daughter, Melanie, and Kerry at Thanksgiving but that’s when Kerry told us he was going to propose to Ashley during their vacation. We didn’t want to ruin their trip.

Adrian Snow W4PSH, 79 years old

Adrian was admitted into the hospital Christmas Eve day.  Earlier this week, Adrian’s cancer progressed rapidly so I talked to Kerry while they were in Geneva.  Melanie was able to book a flight from Chicago and got to Adrian’s bedside at midnight. She talked to her Dad and slept at the hospital overnight.


Kerry shorten his vacation and flew for 20 hour on three different airplanes from Geneva and got to the hospital this evening.  Kerry had an opportunity to tell is Dad how much he loved him and how much he appreciated his father’s strength to wait for his return.

Ten minutes after Kerry got to the hospital and talked to his Dad, Adrian passed.  He died tonight, December 30th at 8pm.  Thank you for your friendship and keep our family in your prayers, please.

Sandi Snow”

FL AM Luncheon – Nov 4, 2017 at N4GUI

Posted: November 5, 2017 by nz1q in Group Meeting

Maury reports the Rum Cake brought by Stan, WA4NFY  and Mary, the expert baker of the highly sought after dessert, was fantastic as always.  The Bubbly, once again provided by Rodger, K1HH was a real treat and always a big hit with the AM’ers.   Maury’s pulled pork disappeared and was a great success.  Maury started smoking the pork at 4 AM and was well worth the early morning start.  Another successful Florida AM Group luncheon.

Many thanks to Maury and Katherine for hosting this years FLAM Group luncheon.  Hope to see everyone next year.
