It is with deep sadness that I pass along to you that John Mabey W7CWK passed away peacefully with his family by his side this afternoon about 3:20 PM. John had been a stalwart in the Utah Amateur Radio Community for many years, a friend and Elmer to all he met. John's key is now silent but his memory will remain with us as long as we live.
No funeral arrangements have been made at this time but the family indicated the funeral will most likely be held early next week. I will pass that along as soon as I find out.
** UPDATE **
Hall Blankenship sent the following update on Feb. 18, 2016
I spoke with John's son Mike tonight. There will be a viewing on Monday evening from 6:00 to 8:00pm and from 9:45 to 10:45 am on Tuesday Morning at the Russon Brother's funeral home, 295 N. Main, in Bountiful. There may be further information when the obituary appears probably in both the Salt Lake Tribune and the Deseret News. I will send out a copy as soon as I see on.
