Dedicated To Rembering Our SKs
Bill Myers, KK4KF/SK
(April 18, 1951-September 22, 2015)
"Deputy Myers ... served this community with distinction for decades. He was loved, admired, and respected for his dedication to the law enforcement profession. He loved photography and he had an ability to make those around him smile, especially his young granddaughter who he adored and took to Disney World as often as he could. We pray for his soul and for his family and we ask that the community pray for them as well, and for all the men and women who have the courage in these troubled times to put their lives on the line for others." --Sheriff Larry Ashley
Paul A Foster, WB8UNT/SK
(August 27, 1944-October 25, 2013)
A lifelong educator, Paul continued a family legacy established generations before him, and inspired many others to join the profession. Paul enjoyed a 30-year teaching career at Aiken High School and Cincinnati Technical College. He was also a veteran of the U.S. Navy, having served during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
After retirement, and moving to Fort Walton Beach, Paul worked 11 years for the Supervisor of Elections office and proudly served on the Board of Trustees at Northwest Florida State College. His community service also included Okaloosa Island Fire Commissioner, CERT, Leaseholders Association, and Playground Amateur Radio Club. Paul was an avid supporter of the Eastern Panhandle Regional Science Fair, judging and mentoring students and representing the Playground Amateur Radio Club in providing awards to students whose projects related to Amateur Radio. This was one of Paul's favorite involvements as it was a combination of his teaching profession and his hobby. It afforded him the opportunity to continue his mission to help students and to promote his hobby of amateur radio.
