  Some sad news to post. We lost Sid W1TNA on Thursday the 15th after a short bought with cancer. I had no clue he was even sick. Sid had contacted me a couple of weeks ago for a possible ride to the Marlboro Fest on the 17th. I had been taxi service from Cape Cod on a couple of occasions for Sid to Nearfest and other festers.  I basically said that as long as I was going, he was more than welcome to come along. I hadn't heard from Sid by Friday (which was unusual) so I shot him a quick Email. This reply came back from his daughter almost immediately.

"Dear Steve,
I am so sorry to be writing this in an email, this is Jody (Sidís daughter).  My father passed away yesterday. He learned he had metastatic cancer about a month ago. He really wanted to fight it but unfortunately did not tolerate the chemotherapy. We are all heartbroken and will miss him terribly.

Take care,
Jody"

  I'll miss the drives with him. If I ever got a word in edgewise, it was unusual. He told me on more than one occasion, that getting back into AM re-vitalized his Ham radio passion. Can't be a lot of the original W1 calls left. We should all treasure the QSO's.

Yes sad news indeed! I spoke to him a number of times on 75 & 40 meters and he was alway pleasant and enthusiastic. I like to think that he may be gone from us but that energy that we all have lives on in that other wavelength!

RIP Sid.........

Very sorry to hear this Steve. Sid was always fun to chat with when I encountered him on 75 meters. He will be missed.

73,

Sorry to hear that Steve.  I had many enjoyable QSO's with Sid on 40M AM with his DX-60 sometimes running into his linear amp.  We also shared back and forth some DX-60 audio mods. 

Sadly we are always at NEAR-Fest and never got to meet him there.

Sad news indeed Steve. Sid was an absolute pleasure to converse with both on the air and in person. He was a true gentleman and a ham's ham. 73 Sid, it was a honor to know you!

That news was heard on the Lonely Guys net.  I couldn't believe it.  A knock in the pit of my stomach.

Rest in peace Sid
