Marvin Gin, W6VM became SK

Received email from John Baer (W6SL) and Bill Fong (W6BBA)informing that Marvin Gin, W6VM passed away on 1/13/2010.
I am sad to hear that. He was in and out of the hospital with diabetes and lung water problems lately.
He was a great guy, ham friend in Santa Maria, CA, USA. He is very much missed. May he rest in peace.
