Cedric Rourke, CT3FT (ex GI3IVJ), January 2015

| January 22, 2015

Sorry to have to record the death of one of our great DXers – Cedric Rourke, CT3FT (formerly GI3IVJ.) Some members have probably worked him at some time or other. Lovely man, well into his 80s, but was still seeking out the two or three remaining entities he needed when he died earlier this week [received 22 Jan 2015 – Ed]. He also maintained regular skeds with his friends back home in GI.

Tribute by Stewart, GI4OCK
