I just heard the news of Keith Pugh's passing. I am shocked and heartbroken.
He was such a great mentor and friend to me through many years with AMSAT
and ARISS. May God bless  Keith and His peace be with his family.

I was shocked to find out just an hour ago that Keith had passed!
I had just exchanged emails with him a few days ago about the
AMASAT booth at am-Com.? So sorry to hear of his passing.? I
enjoyed working with him at Ham-Com and at the Frontiers of Flight
Museum 'Moon Day'.

Fort Worth, Texas. Keith was so involved in the Fort Worth/Metroplex
community that his passing will leave a gigantic hole in all his
organizations. It is great sadness and I can only say May God Bless and Keep

I do pray blessings and the Lord?s peace for his family and All of us who
knew and loved him.

For those of us in the satellite community who got our interest started
because of Keith we owe a whole lot. As an ARISS mentor he was instrumental
in getting many contacts organized including ones he did that I was involved
with here in the DFW Area, including ones at the no longer in existence
National Scouting Museum.  His enthusiasm for amateur radio satellite is
what put the bug in me.

He truly will be missed.

73s Keith

If anyone has a photo of Keith Pugh W5IU you can share with me through
email, it would be appreciated. I'd like to choose some for posting at our
ARISS Facebook. Also, if you have one that has Keith hard at work at any
AMSAT or ARISS events or photos special to you that you've taken with Keith,
those too would be much appreciated.
Please share photos that are around 600KB to 2 MB.
NOTE: Please don't not reply to this email with the photos. Instead, send
them to my gmail acct. at aa4kndhj@?????.??? and not to this email address.

Thank you,

I just saw the post on facebook. I am at a loss. I enjoyed seeing him at
the Symposiums and at Dayton. I recall a conversation we had about our
younger years. I mentioned I had grown up in Garden City, KS and he said
"huh"?  I thought he was Texas born and raised but no Keith was from Dodge
City, KS. 50 miles down the road. Granted many years apart but still the
bond of living in dusty western Kansas was a fun shared experience and
shows how small a world it is. He was a great mentor and a greater friend.
I will miss him very much.

gentlemen.serving others, enjoying friendship and relationships, and
supporting his passions.amateur radio, flying and most importantly his love
of God and all the great things on this Earth.



Those that knew Keith considered him a Texan through and through.  But truth
be told, he was born and raised in Dodge City, Kansas.  After college, he
left Kansas and settled permanently in the Forth Worth, Texas area where
picked up that Texas accent and welcomed us into his world.  And it is in
Texas where he passed away on May 24, 2019.



Active with AMSAT and Amateur Radio satellites since the 1980's, Keith
jump-started his passion for amateur radio on human spaceflight missions in
1991, when the Space Station Mir was in orbit and Soviet ham radio operators
were talking to the world-wide amateur radio community.  Keith helped
install a Soviet Space Exhibit in Fort Worth in 1991 and he hosted Musa
Manarov U2MIR's visit to the USA.  Ultimately, Keith joined the ARISS team
in 2004, where he has provided support as one of our operations leaders,
technical mentoring numerous schools and ARISS contact organizations and
providing his warm friendship and guidance to all in our team.  Keith also
attended several of our ARISS International meetings, including our 2008
ARISS-I meeting in Moscow and Kaluga.



Many of us were aware of Keith's cancer.  But, Keith being Keith, he kept
most of his pain and suffering to himself.  He remained joyful and humble
until his death.  In fact, just a few days before his death--this past
Tuesday, Keith signed into the ARISS International teleconference,
apologizing that he came in late.  None of us knew this would be our last
dialog with such a close friend and outstanding member of our team.



As I stated, one of Keith's passions was flying as a private pilot.  In fact
for one of his vacations he flew a Cessna aircraft around Australia.  As a
fellow pilot, I know that Keith must have been an avid fan of the poem "High
Flight" written by John Gillespie Magee Jr.   Paraphrasing this poem:



While we mourn the loss of our good friend, Keith Pugh, let us joyfully
reflect on the fact that Keith has

Slipped the surly bonds of Earth

And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;

Topped the windswept heights with easy grace

And, while with silent lifting mind, Keith has trod

The high unsurpassed sanctity of Space,

Put out his hand and touched the face of God.



Our thoughts and prayers are with Keith Pugh, W3IU SK as he touches the face
of God.



73,  Frank Bauer, KA3HDO

The camera is turn on occasionally by ground command. When it is on, the
data rate is faster and takes up the entire downlink.

Keith and I share last names and had lots of fun confusing hotel clerks. I
will miss his company and cowboy hat at sat contact demos.

God speed and 73's Keith
