Robert (Bob) Lewis WA5ONL (Previous callsign WB5FDF)- SK

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Robert (Bob) Lewis WA5ONL (previously WB5FDF) on Wednesday morning, August 17, 2022. Bob passed peacefully while asleep in his living room chair.

Bob was an active member of the DARC back in the 1970 and 1980’s. He taught a number of morse code classes.

(Note from James N5BKL who remembered him): Bob was very active in the DARC. He was the Technical Officer and maintained the W5FC repeaters. He was also one of the teachers of the classes that taught amateur radio twice a year at Love Field and at Electronic Center. He was employed at TI as an electronic engineer. Bob mentored many young hams throughout his career and hobby. He will be missed by many.

Bob was also the brother one of our current members David Lewis AC5DL.

Please keep the Lewis family in your thoughts and prayers.

73 Bob, you will be missed!
