Eric C.Juhre W9GVW
August 31,1949 - March 8, 2021   

Eric got his Ham Radio license at age 13 and was an amateur astronomer.  His first call was WN9GVW issued in 1963. He enjoyed CW, mobile operation,and ragchewing.


The following was taken from Eric's QRZ page.   

"I retired from the USAF in 1991, flying Cargo planes, after hamming aeronautical mobile and from exotic extremes such as Alaska, England, Greece and Okinawa, Japan. I also spent time on the air from Panama, Diego Garcia BIOT, and the "Black Pearl of the Pacific" (If you know the phrase, you know where I'm talking about) After retiring, I was looking for a low-stress job, so I ended up teaching elementary science in the public school system here in San Antonio. Perhaps one of these days I'll get around to setting up a ham station at the school.   And after 12 years of that I retired again."  

Eric is survived by a cousin, Jodi Lin and her husband Bob Huybers of San Angelo TX.    

A Military Honors Memorial service will be held at the Ft Sam Houston National Cemetery Tuesday April 29 at 2:15 at 1520 Wurzbach, San Antonio  TX  78209.  Phone 210 820 3891.  Masks are required.
