SB SPCL ARL ARLX011
ARLX011 Former Hudson Division Director Paul Vydareny, WB2VUK, SK

Paul Vydareny, WB2VUK, of Tarrytown, New York, passed away Thursday,
October 22, from a brain aneurysm. He was 65.

An ARRL Life Member and member of the ARRL's A-1 Operator Club,
Vydareny served as Director of the ARRL's Hudson Division from
January-September 1996.

Vydareny had a long record of volunteer service with the ARRL: Prior
to becoming Director, he served as Section Manager of the Eastern
New York Section from 1980-1996 and as Vice Director from 1987-1996
(Vice Directors were once allowed to serve simultaneously as Section
Managers).

Vydareny -- who was elevated from Vice Director to Director when
then-Director Steve Mendelsohn, W2ML (ex-WA2DHF), was elected ARRL
First Vice President -- resigned as Director in 1996, citing job and
church obligations as preventing him from doing what he considered
"a proper job of fulfilling his duties as Director."

Vydareny's three daughters -- Alyssa, Karyn and Sylvie -- are also
licensed amateurs.
