z - In memorium - Reg Allenet GJ3XZE

It is with sadness I must record the passing (17 January 2017) of a dear friend and fellow radio amateur Mr Reg Allenet callsign GJ3XZE of the Channel Island of Jersey.

Reg and his wife Joan who pre-deceased him a few years back.

Reg and his Grandson Mathew (now 6 feet tall!) in the shack.

Reg was a good friend and on a personal basis assisted me greatly by allowing me to lodge with him for several months when I first started living in France and commuting to Jersey for work back in 2011. He also made his shack available for my use and to store some equipment at the time. During the summer I stayed there he used to give me a carrier bag of 'toms' (tomatoes) very often before heading home to France and one time he gave me a watercolour framed picture by his sadly departed daughter Janine which I still have.

Good bye Reg, it was a pleasure and an honour to have known you.
