I would like to announce the passing of Salt Jones, VE3PJ, at the remarkable age of 99 last Sunday. I first met Salt at one of the Nortown meetings back in the 60's at the old Civil Defence building on Davenport Rd. My father told me that he and my aunt were very good friends as children back in the 20's and 30's when they lived on Greensides avenue in Toronto! Salt soon joined the Scarborough Club, the QCWA and the TFMCS. I believe he helped TFMCS build the RPT concrete bunker at Uxbridge.
May He rest in Peace!
