Former Western Washington SM Harry Lewis, W7JWJ, (SK):

Former ARRL Western Washington Section Manager Harry Lewis, W7JWJ, of Seattle, died October 19. He was 90. Lewis served as WWA Section Manager from 1991 until 2003.

"Harry was very active in ARRL for many years and held many positions in the organization," said current Western Washington SM Monte Simpson, K2MLS.

His late wife, former Northwestern Division Director and Western Washington SM Mary Lewis, W7QGP, died last March. Survivors include a daughter, Diana, K7ETY, and a son, Gary, WA7BBJ. In addition to Section Manager, Lewis served as an ARRL Technical Coordinator, Official Emergency Station, Official Bulletin Station, and ARRL Registered Instructor who mentored hundreds of prospective and new hams. In 2005 Lewis and Connecticut Section Manager Betsey Doane, K1EIC, were honored as the co-recipients of the ARRL Certification and Continuing Education Mentor/Instructor of the Year Award.

Born in British Columbia, Canada, and first licensed in 1941, Lewis was a Life Member of ARRL and QCWA. He was a broadcast engineer and, earlier, a Morse telegrapher. Lewis was a crack high-speed CW operator who could copy code in excess of 75 WPM. Services will be announced.
