Jack NeSmith SK

I just got off the phone with Jack NeSmith's daughter. She and Jean wanted
me to pass along that Jack "Grunt" NeSmith passed away this morning in a
local hospital in Florida.

Jack was diagnosed a few weeks ago with brain cancer and went through surgery. Things were looking up and he was in high spirits. But in the end the radiation and chemo weakened him and pneumonia developed Monday. He went into the hospital Tuesday but things had progressed to far for a recovery.

Jack has been my close friend for well over 25 years. We shared a lot including daily telephone calls and visits. He was quite the character, loved scanners and in particular, milcom monitoring.

According to Jean there will not be a service, so we won't be heading down to FLA. If I learn anymore I will pass it along.

Rest in peace Jack. Gayle and I will miss you, as well as your many scanner/milcom friends.
