From: RAC Headquarters Date: November 7, 1999 Subject: Frederick Oliver Hammond - VE3HC "SK" It is with deep regret that Radio Amateurs of Canada announces the loss of a great friend to amateur radio. Fred Hammond (1913 - 1999) died Nov 7 at 10 AM following a debilitating stroke last year. Visitation will be at Wall-Custance Funeral Home, 206 Norfolk St., Guelph, ON Tue 7-9, Wed 2-4 and 7-9. Funeral Thursday Nov. 11 at 2pm in the chapel. Reception to follow in the Wall-Custance Family Reception Centre. Fred was a holder of both "Member of the Canadian Amateur Radio Hall of Fame" and "Canadian Radio Amateur of the Year" awards. His contributions to amateur radio and amateur radio causes are legendary. A favourite personal project, the Hammond Amateur Radio Museum, has recently been reorganized and reopened at the family-owned Hammond Manufacturing Company facility in Guelph, Ontario.
