It is with grate sadness I pass along information that "David T" Schaefer
NR9M became a silent key on the afternoon of Monday Dec 5, 2005. In the
early 80 & 90's David T while living in the Nappanee area was very active in
Amateur Radio and promoting the functions Amateur Radio offer. He also
became an aggressive VE examiner along with his brother Wes and help cover
most of North Central Indiana, including organizing the VE testing at the Ft
Wayne Hamfest for several years.
Dave suffered from a rare, swift, debilitating disorder called "Frontal Lobe
Dementia". His wife Sandy and their kids have allowed the medical community
to examine what may have caused this, in hopes of helping others in the
A memorial service will be performed at a later date.
