These notices are getting all too frequent these days... 

I learned today that Warren Stiles, W1LO (fka WA1RLO) passed away recently.  Warren lived here in the same town as me (Weare, NH).  I had known Warren for about 50 years.  Occasionally I used to see him down at the local post office. Unfortunately, I do not get on 75 meters these days and have not chatted with him on the air in a long time.  I usually see him at NEAR-Fest, but missed him at the recent NEAR-Fest. 

RIP OM,

Warren is an example of a young fellow who took an interest in radio and electronics, pursued education and made a good career out of it all.  He worked in industry but mostly in communications, most recently taking care of mountaintop stations for the Gummint.  He knew what was in his radios and could fix them and had a wide range of interests within amateur radio.  Since his retirement he was developing his old buzzard skills and could rant away with the best of them.  Warren was a practicing Seventh Day Adventist, a group which holds Saturday as their holy day.    This was why he'd come to Hosstraders or Nearfest on Friday only.  That alone oughta be worth something when he got to the Pearly Gates.   Last month I had a work stopover in Guam at Adventist World Radio and had brought back a photo card showing a couple short wave curtains that I had worked with on a previous trip.  I'd hoped to pass it along to Warren at Nearfest but that just didn't happen.

This is so sad. I saw him briefly at NEARFest and spoke to him on the air a day or two later. He was a regular on 3705 in the morning but I’d not heard from him all week. He will be greatly missed.

Wow, this is a shock. We hadn't heard him down on 3705 in a bit, so we thought he was playing with his new IC7300. (On the upper bands.)
 Just,..no words.

I missed running into him at NEARFEST, which we then discussed on the air...
and I noticed that he was not on the air for a few days...

Anyone have a picture of Warren??

Warren and I were first licensed around the same time in the mid 60’s. 
Very knowledgeable and I can’t begin to enumerate the number of times we have worked over the years

This is Sad News, I have Known Warren since the early Seventies when He was Working in the Keene Area for Motorola.I Spoke with Him often usually on the VHF spectrum. I Remember His former Wife Pam, when She and Warren Divorced, Pam left the Church and Warren remained a devout Parishioner up to the Time of His passing... We will all Miss His dynamic Personality.

What a shock.  I had a very short drive exchange by with Warren as I drove past his spot on the way into Nearfest. Sadly, I did not get back down later on in the day to spend more time with him.  Enjoyed his company over the last several years on 3705 in the morning.  God Speed Warren…you are missed.

Here’s a picture of Warren taken by Kevin K2XAM at last October’s Nearfest.  Love that hat Warren!

Sad to say Warren was not in the best of health.  He visited me a few years ago and we discussed several of his health issues.  We'll miss his presence on 75

What a loss, such a nice guy, he will be missed for sure. I did speak with him at Near Fest, i remember last year at Near Fest we had some fun with a few Radio Shack Space Patrol walkie talkies, had fun re-living our Childhood for sure.

We are losing a unique personality... a funny guy always laughing and having fun.  

I've known Warren from back in the early 1970s on 75M.  He was a regular from "NoWeare"  NH.

Rest in peace, Warren.
