Paul Dickey, N6JOX SK, Mar. 3, 1933-Sept. 10, 2017

It is with sadness to report that Paul Dickey, N6JOX passed away on Sunday September 10, 2017. Paul was a long time member of the CCRA and had supported our mission since 1989.  He started Boy Scout Troop 234 out of Moraga and was an avid Scouter.  He always was cordial, had a smile on his face and was the definition of a gentleman. He will be missed.

There was a celebration of his life at the Moraga Valley Presbyterian Church, 10 Moraga Valley Ln., Moraga, CA 94556 at 1 PM on Monday, October 16th.  It was well attended by over 100 people and it was a pleasure to meet his wife Judy and their two sons, Rob and Randy.  I did speak to Paul’s two grandsons and they were interested in getting their ham licenses.  Who knows, maybe N6JOX will be back on the air one day…
