Amateur radio lost another one of the finest gentlemen to grace the hobby. Roy Neiman, KJ4EGN, went to be with the Lord today, August 12, 2020. He was quiet, humble and unassuming, gentle and the first to volunteer if needed. He was the first person to greet many of us with his outstretched hand as he shook it, smiled and introduced himself. He was a true gentleman ham, both on the radio and off. Roy served as Secretary for the Gold Coast Amateur Radio Association (GCARA) for many years. In addition to the GCARA, he also belonged to the Broward Amateur Radio Club (BARC), Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES), Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) and volunteered many years for the Winterfest Boat Parade. Roy also served as a Net Control Operator for the South East Florida Traffic Net Wednesday nights, and his absence will be noticed every week. Roy leaves behind several beloved children and his greatest love of 60 years, Vicki Neiman. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his lovely family and the many friends he made along his journey.
Rest in Peace Roy.
Melanie Fernandez, GCARA President
