This is very sad news indeed.  I first worked Cor on 432 EME in 1975, on
Oscar satellites and later in 1980 on 23 cm EME.  Cor was always very
innovative with EME system configurations including the first use of
circular polarity on 432.  He was always very helpful to others and will be
sorely missed

Colleagues, I received a message from Cor's wife Lois that he passed away
yesterday afternoon at his home in Duncan, BC. She said that he died from
colorectal cancer. This is a shock as I was in contact with him as recently
as mid April and all was seemingly okay then. This is a sad loss. I will
post more information as it comes available. Mark Mattila, VA7MM
