OBITUARY

Post by RGORJANCE » Sun Dec 30, 2018 10:27 am

Folks:

I have some sad news to report. I received an email from Jeff Welton earlier today notifying me of the passing of a very good friend. Jeff Nordstrom passed away last week from a heart attack.

He was one of the friendliest people I have known. He was also very helpful providing satellite support. I first met him waaaay back in either the late 60's or very ear;y 70's when he was a chief engineer of an FM station in the Oshkosh-Neenah area of WI.

:(

Jeff is who first bought my tone decoders for inclusion in the Harris Satellite division line and introduced them to the business. I hadn't talked to him for awhile but this is a tough one to take.

Further to this, there will be a memorial for Jeff in Racine on Feb. 1... from Chuck Kelly:

"Jeff’s funeral is Friday February 1st, First Evangelical Lutheran Church, 728 Villa St, Racine at 11 AM with Visitation 10AM. Luncheon follows at Infusino's Restaurant, 3201 Rapids Drive, Racine."

I got to know Jeff through Chuck and we'd make it a point to set aside at least half an hour every WBA to tell war stories and shoot the breeze - I'm going to miss those chats. :(

I will be attending the funeral, and will represent the group.

Jeff was originally from Racine and has relatives in the area. I will pass along condolences.
