SK K5WLQ Jim Heye

It is with great sadness that I share the following information with you:

Dear Friends,

Our dad Jim went to be with the Lord on October 18th. He fought cancer for 18 amazing years.

Please join us for his celebration of his life on Sunday, October 29th from 2 – 4 at Jim’s home at 1710 Woodoak, Richardson, TX.

A small graveside service will be held in San Antonio at a later date.

In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to either the American Cancer Society ( or The American Radio Relay League (

Keri Ellis and Christi Heye

On a personal note, I met Jim shortly after becoming a member of the DARC in 2006.  Jim, Tom and I became good friend and we enjoyed talking with him and visiting him in his home and going out for a dinner with him a couple times a year.

Jim K5WLQ joined the Dallas Amateur Radio Club on December 31, 2003.  Jim was always willing to help anytime we contacted him looking for advise or with a need.  Jim was a large donor in supporting the DARC when we were building the DARC Communications Trailer. He was also helpful in helping the club sell equipment on E-Bay and care of all the work in selling/packing/shipping products.  Jim was a great friend!

Anyone who knew Jim, knows he never complained about his long illness, in fact, he did not like discussing illness but would rather look on the bright side.

73 Jim K5WLQ!  You will be greatly missed.

Randy Patterson
