Condolence: I am so sorry to read of Mr. Crabill's death. Mr. Crabill (and his wife before her passing) could often be found at Bridgeforth Field for Winchester Royals baseball games. He generally sat in the first set of bleachers on the 3rd base side of the field. I always enjoyed reading Mr. Crabill's restaurant reviews at the wincfoods website. He was SO precise and very detailed in his analysis of local restaurants. RIP, Mr. Crabill. You are sadly missed.

Condolence: I'm so very sorry to learn of Perry's passing. Perry was a very close friend of my father, Roy Cartier (K4AC), and I got to know him through my father. Perry was like a 2nd father to me- for some reason, we always "got" each other. I have always thought he was 1 of the most intelligent & fascinating people that I have ever known. And I always admired how devoted he was to his wife Harriet. Even after my father passed away 12 years ago, I continued to keep in touch with Perry, & visited him on my annual trips to VA. It won't be the same anymore, visiting Winchester without Perry there. I also will miss his Christmas letters, & the detailed restaurant reviews & other news tidbits about events in Winchester that Perry often sent me via Email. He was a truly remarkable person, & a dear friend to me. He will be greatly missed, forever cherished & remembered.

Condolence: Very sad to hear of Perry's passing. My first on air recollection of Perry was when he and another ham used to talk on the radio while walking in the morning. He used to sign in by saying "walking and talking on 22 82" so other amateurs listening knew he was on the repeater...I'll never forget that. My wife and I would see him occasionally at the Winchester Little Theater... he always enjoyed going to the plays. R.I.P. kind sir.

Condolence: To Perry's family,

I met Perry in May 1999 when I joined the Frederick Co Hiking Group and have stayed in touch until late last year.

Perry was a "one of a kind" and I'm very fortunate to have known him, hiking with him for a good number of years and receiving his very detailed hiking reports and dining reports.

My sincerest sympathy to all of Perry's family.
