With extreme regret, I want to inform everyone that Rollo Medler, W4ANN, became a silent key yesterday.
Apparently he had fallen earlier in the week, and had been taken to the hospital, and was getting better. I am told that Elaine was at home, when they brought lunch to him, and he called Elaine to come to the hospital and help him eat it. He died before she got there.
Rollo was a member of both the Ocala, FL (Chapter 62) QCWA, and the Gainesville, FL, Chapter. He was Chaplain of Chapter 62, and had served as director and other offices over the years. He had been a ham for over 70 years, and was a radio pioneer in this area.
Calling Hours will be at Williams-Thomas Funeral Home, 404 North Main Street, Gainesville, from 6 to 7 PM tomorrow (Friday). Funeral at First United Methodist Church, which is in the 400 block of NE First Street in Gainesville, at 2 PM Saturday.
Chapter 62 will send flowers of behalf of QCWA..
