I Just received this email;
This is Carla Pike, daughter of Norman McAtee (KB8EXV). I am sorry to have to tell you that Norman passed away earlier this week, on December 5 :( My parents were actually on the flight to Hawaii when it happened. My mom, Cathie, flew home today.
He is being cremated in Hawaii and then sent back home. We are planning on a celebration of life service for Saturday, December 17. The service will be held at the First United Methodist Church, 28400 Evergreen, Flat Rock, MI. We will be meeting with the pastor early next week to confirm the time. There will be a luncheon after the service, also at the church.
I'll contact you again once the time of the service is decided. Please spread the word to let the other members of the radio club know. In lieu of flowers, the family would rather have donations go to the American Heart Association, the National Kidney Foundation, or to the First United Methodist Church of Flat Rock.

Cathie McAtee (Norman's wife)
