It is with a very, very heavy heart that we post this notice.  We lost a highly respected member of the club this morning.  Bill Eacho, K4ASI, better known to many of us as “Smokehouse” became a silent key this morning.  Joy, W2JMS, received word from Dr. John Myles that he apparently had a stroke.  There are no other details at this time.  Dr. John told me he would keep me posted and I in turn will send out funeral details as soon as we know them.

**UPDATE 2-11-18** Arrangements for Bill will be as follows: the funeral will be at Andrews Funeral Home on Thursday Feb. 15th at 6:30 PM.

Smokehouse was an Elmer to many and worked very hard for ham radio and the club as long as he was able to do so.  He was a fixture at our breakfasts.  He will be greatly missed.

Please say a prayer for him and his family as they deal with this loss.
