ARRL Honorary Vice President Hugh Turnbull, W3ABC, of Silver Spring,
Maryland, died September 14 at age 93.

Turnbull served the ARRL as Atlantic Division Vice Director (1980-1982) and
Director (1982-1996). The ARRL Board named him Vice President in 1996 and
Honorary Vice President in 2000.

Aside from his long and distinguished service to the ARRL, Hugh was
actively involved in several DC-area Amateur Radio clubs and organizations,
including the Foundation for Amateur Radio, a group of clubs from the
Maryland, Washington, DC and Northern Virginia area that awards
scholarships to deserving radio amateurs.

In 2005, the Quarter Century Wireless Association awarded Turnbull a
special plaque recognizing his "exceptional contributions to Amateur Radio
in general and for outstanding work in the selection of recipients for the
QCWA scholarship awards." He was also a charter member of the Goddard
Amateur Radio Club.

A licensed and active radio amateur since 1932, Hugh's engineering career
included employment with the FCC, the Voice of America and NASA.

Upon hearing of his death, ARRL President Kay Craigie, N3KN, who served as
Atlantic Division Vice Director during Hugh's tenure as Director, said:
"Hugh's life was devoted to serving his country and Amateur Radio. Many
times I heard him say that each of us should 'give something back' to ham
radio. He was my first mentor in ARRL leadership, and it was my good
fortune to have his example to learn from."

ARRL Chief Executive Officer David Sumner, K1ZZ, added: "Hugh was an
exemplary member of 'The Greatest Generation' who unselfishly took on
whatever needed to be done for the common good."

According to his daughter, Karen Shangraw, Turnbull will be buried with
full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. [SB QST ARL ARLB024]
