      Hello Melle,

      My father, James Vanderheide, said you were gathering info about our family tree and had a question about me. Yes, I live on 9th Avenue in Portland OR. I am now 62 years old and have no offspring, so my twig on the tree is likely to end with me. I have little interest in genealogy myself, but wish you luck in your pursuit.

      Your distant relative,

      Bill was born in Michigan to James and Jean Vanderheide, the oldest of three children. In junior high he moved to Southern California and began his lifelong hobbies of ham radio and tennis. He graduated from the University of California Berkeley and Claremont Graduate School. Bill set up communications for his Army unit in Vietnam during the war.

      When Bill was hired by the Lake Oswego School District he moved to Oregon. Bill taught at Forest Hills Elementary for 25 years. In his retirement he walked the entire Oregon Coast and many parts of England, Ireland, Scotland and Japan. His articles were published about ham radio expeditions he took to islands in the South Pacific. He also was a volunteer docent at the Frank Lloyd Wright Gordon House, tutored with the SMART program and made eight teaching trips with the Global Volunteers.

      Bill is survived his parents, Jim and Jean Vanderheide of Laguna Niguel, Calif., and his sister, Jill Cocco of San Clemente, Calif., and thousands of students throughout the world whose lives were touched by his calm and caring nature towards learning.

      Well-known contester and DXpeditioner William ?Bill? Vanderheide, N7OU (ex-AA7KF), of Portland, Oregon, died December 31 after a lengthy illness. He was 70. A member of the ARRL and the Willamette Valley DX Club, he had operated from a dozen islands in the South Pacific as well as from several in the Caribbean, often combining Amateur Radio with service in the Global Volunteers organization, helping out in local classrooms. Licensed in Michigan at 13, Vanderheide was an avid CW operator, a regular and high-scoring participant in ARRL November Sweepstakes, Field Day and other operating events ? always running QRP or low power with wire antennas, said his friend Bob Norin, W7YAQ, who called him ?an outstanding contester, DXpeditioner, and ambassador? for Amateur Radio.

      ?Bill was a keen practitioner of the lightweight DXpedition, Norin said. Vanderheide documented his DXpeditions in articles for QST ? including ?Return to Rotuma? in the October 2013 edition, and ?High Tide on Tarawa? in January 2012.

      ?Bill?s career was as an educator, teaching for over 30 years in the Portland area,? Norin told ARRL. ?In addition to ham radio, Bill was an excellent tennis player, a docent at a local Frank Lloyd Wright house, and ? after retirement ? a volunteer at Portland schools.?

      Norin went along with Vanderheide on several DXpeditions and operated with him on numerous Field Day weekends. ?Bill was the ideal traveling companion. He had wide-ranging interests, was humble, ego-less, yet motivated, disciplined, technically competent, and a first-class CW operator. Bill was, above all, a wonderful friend.?

      N7OU was involved in the T27OU, T32OU, 3D2OU, 3D2RO, 5W0OU, ZK1NOU, ZK3OU, ZL7/N7OU, AA7KF, N7OU/HI9, E51NOU, E51PEN, TI5/N7OU, and YJ0OU DXpeditions.

      He also was a sorter with the 7th Area ARRL QSL Bureau.

      "Happy 2016 everyone. Yesterday I lost a very important person to me to a brave and strong battle with brain cancer; my uncle Bill. So, my resolutions will be in honor of the things I've learned from him; life is an adventure, there is so much to see and do in the world, take advantage of that. Television is a waste of time (unless you're sick). There's no excuse not to at least walk a good distance each day (he walked six miles every day, even when he was in chemo). Friends are so important, cherish the ones that cherish you and find enriching things to do together. Read! Knowledge is power and enlightenment.

      I have exited 2015 without one of my favorite people but I am entering 2016 with gratitude because my uncle has left such a huge mark on who I am.

      Happy new year everyone. Thank you to all the people that made such an impact on me in 2015, you know who you are"
