I am very sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Herbert DeHart. He was my electronics teacher at Ruffin High School & was the reason that I chose electronics as my profession. I also taught with his brother, Bob DeHart, at Morehead High School. My sincere condolences go out to Mr. DeHart's family. I just found out today about his passing (September 22). I will miss my mentor and friend! Maynard Hyler
