In Memoriam Andy Tanner
By Susan Becker

Andy Tanner, a senior member of our chapter, died on September 1.

Andy was a San Francisco Bay Area native, who graduated from California Polytechnic State University in 1976 with a BA in Journalism. He worked for 17 years as a technical writer with PG&E and was a member of our chapter since 1995.

Many of you who attended chapter meetings will remember Andy as the tall, quiet, and often smiling man who arrived early, sat near the front of the room, and helped out by setting up the screen for our projector.

Chapter officers attended a gathering in Andy's honor in September, and Cindy Bashaar Tanner, Andy's wife of 20 years, came to our September chapter meeting. We will miss Andy.
