It is with the deepest sadness I relate to you the death of Allen
Sochel, WA6IDZ, at his home on Tuesday night, January 29th. His passing
was peaceful with his wife June at his side. A memorial gathering is
planned for Saturday, February 16th, at 10 a.m. at the Montecito Country
Club. Details will be announced later this week in the News-Press.
Al had served on the SBARC Board in past years and was our Executive
Vice President in 2001. His calm presence added so much dignity to our
gatherings and, when asked, his wise advice was always logical and fair.
He enjoyed participating in event communications and was a friendly
voice to chat with any time. He was a great friend and I will miss him
