I am in shock - while I may have had differences with Pierre - he was a good man and an innovator and helped my business greatly in the early days. ---Don W6ZO

(BELLEVUE, February, 2004) SGC, Inc. regretfully announces the passing of its founder and president, Pierre Goral on February 12th 2004. Pierre was an internationally recognized designer, entrepreneur and leader in the field of RF engineering.

In his personal life, Pierre was a caring and devoted husband, father, friend, model citizen, and community leader. In his leisure time, he was an artist, photographer, skier, and snowboarder, and demonstrated an appreciation of life in everything he did. He led an adventurous life, working in the jungles of Brazil as a young engineer, and traveling the world to represent his company, SGC, Inc., established in 1971. RF engineering was his passion and he devoted himself and his company to producing only the very finest, professional HF SSB products. His emphasis on quality set the standard for the industry.

While the company mourns the loss of such a valuable friend and leader, SGC will continue to move forward and produce products to the standards the industry has come to rely on after more than 30 years of successful business.

Condolences for the family may be sent care of SGC, Inc., 13737 SE 26th Street, Bellevue, WA 98005 or by email to:
