ARLX012 Former Puerto Rico SM Guillermo Schwarz, KP3S, SK

Former ARRL Puerto Rico Section Manager Guillermo M. Schwarz, KP3S,
and his wife, Hildelisa, died July 29 after Schwarz's experimental
aircraft crashed in Ohio.

The mishap is said to have occurred as the single-engine, two-seat
kit plane was attempting a final landing approach at Wayne County
Airport near Wooster. The couple died after being taken to separate
hospitals. The couple had flown to the mainland on vacation.

Schwarz, 49, was Puerto Rico's Section Manager from October 1994
until September 1998 and had been serving as a Southeastern Division
Assistant Director since 1996.

Investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration were reported
to be at the scene.

Puerto Rico SM Victor Madera, KP4PQ, called Guillermo Schwarz "an
excellent ham, a good friend." He said that Schwarz, who had piloted
B-52s in the service, had only completed building the aircraft a few
weeks earlier.

No information was available on funeral arrangements.
