Just a quick note to inform you of the death of Floyd D. Riemenschneider, K7MGA. Dad passed yesterday, November 21, 2007 at the age of 96. To our knowledge, Dad and I are the oldest, Longest licensed, consecutive call Father/Son pair living together, in the United States. With Dad at 96 and Myself at 62, we recieved our first license (Novice) on May 30, 1960. I was still in Junior High School at the time and now at the end of his life, he's lives with my wife and I for the last 3 years. We spent many wonderful times together in various Ham Radio activities. We were both Charter Members in Chapter 170. Services have not been set as yet, but will be around November 29 or 30.
