| January 2, 2019

Max Heron, MW1KDP, sadly passed away, at home with his family around him, on Saturday 8th December 2018, aged 75 years.

Max lived in Barmouth and was an ex Yorkshire miner turned aerial rigger, hence his nickname Mad Max !

He had been a member of Meirion ARS for over 30 years and was a valued friend to everyone who knew him. Max held most committee posts for Meirion club and was made an honorary member for his long service. One of Max’s main interests was RAYNET, and he was a founder member of the Meirion RAYNET group.

Max will be greatly missed for his help and enthusiasm, during special events and RAYNET exercises.

Away from amateur radio, Max was keen to help the local community, among his many interests, he attended the local church, was a helper at Barmouth town football club (working in the club tea room) and could sometimes be found voluntarily cleaning Barmouth railway station, often late into the night.

Max always lived up to his nickname Mad Max and his his aerial rigging exploits are legendary.

Meirion ARS send condolences to Max’s family and friends, he will be sorely missed.

Tribute by John Martin, MW0VTK
