It is with deep regret I inform you that Barry Stewart ZL2RR, after a brief illness, became a Silent Key on Tuesday morning 29 July 2014. Barry's sons requested that we allow them some privacy in the days immediately after Barry's passing, which is why this notification has been delayed.
Barry's funeral is to be held on Friday 1 August at 2pm in Wanganui. Council will be represented by our Business Manager, Debby Morgan ZL2DL.
Many of you will know Barry from his tireless work in posting and receiving QSL cards from around the world and to you via the ZL1, ZL2, ZL3 and ZL4 sub-bureaus. Barry was our QSL Bureau Manager for 24 years and will be greatly missed. His last action in that role was to ensure that the QSL Bureau would continue in capable hands and recommended to Council that Ivan Horn ZL2ATU be appointed the new NZ Bureau Manager. Council approved Ivan's appointment last Friday and have arranged for him to now receive all e-mails relating to the QSL Bureau. Leo Boyle ZL2BGE will be assisting Ivan with the financial aspects of running the Bureau.
Barry's sons also ensured that Ivan received all documentation for the bureau to continue.
On behalf of all NZART members, I would like to take this opportunity to pass on our sincere condolences to Opul and sons, Donald, Lyall and their families.
Vaughan Henderson ZL1VH
