My condolences.
Always enjoyed his posts. Loved the way he wrote...kind of like speech to text. Didn't know him, but he seemed to be a "salt of the Earth" type of guy.

(quoted from post at 21:26:15 02/03/1Cool All,

It's with a heavy heart that I must regretfully report to the community here that Dell (WA) passed away peacefully in his sleep on January 31 at the age of 80. Thank you all for the many years of companionship that you have provided my father, the old sparkie meister always spoke quite kindly of the YT community.

Signing off for the last time,

Dell (WA)
(By way of his son.)


Very sorry for your loss. Whenever I come to yt I seek out his posts. He is going to be missed.

I'm very sorry, he helped me, and was understanding when you didn't get it the first time. He will be missed here by all of us.

Dell has led by example of polite and friendly decorum. I do not post very much because I have little to contribute. I have t appreciated the gentle kindness of Dell. Del is respected because of his technical skills but more so as a gentleman I think.

I am so sorry Son. He was really a character and just loved to stirr up things. :O) YT is going to miss him and I will too. It's like taking the
agitator out of the washing machine, it will never be the same around here.
He contributed so much here on this site.

I think I have been a member of this site for 20 years and it's a tribute to see more post about your daddy here than I have ever seen in those 20
years.

Coming in late on this but I want to express my condolences to you and your family. Dell was a genuine character and was the kind of guy that you would put on your list to visit if you were ever in his area.

I felt close to him by being a Boeing supplier for most of my life and I always thought we would have some good stories to swap.

Thank you for involving us all and giving us the chance to wish him farewell.

Best regards,
Bob Johnson

Glad to see he found his way to the memorials forum. Don't hang here lately, my 2N is in the fence row and has not run in years. Just got tired of fighting it. Dell was a great help when I was first working on it. He will be missed.
