ARLX001 Dr. William W. McGrannahan, N0ZL (ex-K0ORB), SK

Past ARRL Midwest Division Vice Director and Director Bill
McGrannahan, N0ZL (ex-K0ORB), of Kansas City, Missouri, died April
24. He was 83.

A Charter Life Member of the ARRL, McGrannahan was serving as vice
director of the Midwest Division when Director Paul Grauer, W0FIR,
resigned for health reasons in 1993. McGrannahan assumed the
directorship for the next six months, but he lost a close election
for a full term as director that fall. McGrannahan also served on
the Quarter Century Wireless Association Board of Directors.

An Army Air Corps veteran, McGrannahan went on to become a dental
surgeon. He retired in 1986, although he continued to lecture and
present continuing education courses for dental schools and
societies until 1990. He was a member of American Mensa, served on
the volunteer staff of Children's Mercy Hospital and was a member of
the Research Hospital oral surgery staff. McGrannahan received two
citations from the American Dental Association for his contributions
to scientific programs as well as similar honors from Baylor
University and the University of Pittsburg. He also was active in
the University of Missouri at Kansas City and Kansas University
alumni associations.

Survivors include his wife Virginia and their daughter and son.
There will be no formal service. The family has suggested that
friends observe a memorial moment. Friends have been invited to
gather Friday, April 29, 2-4 PM, at Central United Methodist Church,
5144 Oak, Kansas City, Missouri (enter on the west side of the
building). In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial
donations to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation or to Children's
Mercy Hospital.
