Silent Key Tribute

Michael Patrick Maloy, KF7DTI (S.K.) 09/17/17 R.I.P.

Mike Maloy died unexpectedly a week ago and has left a large hole in the fabric of our team, Western Washington Medical Services Communications. Mike was the ARES Emergency Coordinator for the Region 6 (King County) Medical Services Team, and was also the Webmaster for the annual Communications Academy conference. He contributed so much to the smooth running of our activities.

Mike was also very active in several other Amateur Radio organizations, such as the Seattle Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS), PSRG repeater group, and an enthusiastic participant in many public service ham events. He will be sorely missed.

Service arrangements have not yet been announced, but please leave tributes and words of comfort for his family at the following on-line Web site:

http://www.washelli.com/obituary/200097/Michael-Maloy/

We will send out an announcement when services are scheduled.

Marina Zuetell, N7LSL
Asst. Section Emergency Coordinator, W. WA. ARES
President W.WA. Medical Services Communications
