CAARA has lost a beloved member, WA1JG

John Graves II, WA1JG/SK

Long time CAARA member John Graves II, WA1JG passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 11, 2018.

John was a loving husband, father, brother, grandfather and uncle. He was a perpetual tinkerer, an avid reader, and an animal aficionado, with a seemingly boundless curiosity for learning about and mastering any new technology he could get his hands on (including cars, radio, cameras, personal computers and electronics), and a love for collecting new tools and toys he could use to play around with that technology.

John was also a dedicated photographer, with a camera constantly strapped around his neck at family functions, studying friends and family through the lens to capture the moment forever.

Professionally, John worked in sales for a variety of companies, often in industries such as automotive, personal computers, and I.T., which dovetailed with his personal interests. For the last 25 years of his career, John ran his own computer networking consultancy, Dynamic Devices.

But above all, John was a sailor. He was most in his element on the water, with the wind at his back, sunshine on his face, and surrounded always by people he loved. As a youth, John spent many happy afternoons in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, on his grandfather's motorboat, “Down Easter” and on his uncle's sailboat “Small Fry”. In college, he taught sailing in Annapolis, Md. Eventually, he acquired his own sailboats, “Valhalla” and “Hot Flash”. John loved nothing more than sailing with his family.
