Please keep the family and friends of John Crockett in your thoughts and prayers.  He was a tremendous advocate for amateur radio.  Below is a notice that was posted to the scheart.us web site:

It is with deep regret that we inform you of the passing of John Crockett, W3KH. After a long bout with cancer, John passed peacefully this morning, surrounded by his beloved family and wife, Karen. John and Karen had their 40th wedding anniversary on Sunday.
Amateur radio and emergency communications had no greater advocate in South Carolina than John Crockett. His tireless devotion to service led to the establishment of the SCHEART network, the SC DMR network and countless other innovations of immeasurable service to the people of South Carolina.
