Gary Storm (Stormy) (N7WX)


Oct 2016


Stormy passed away a few months ago after a hard battle with liver failure. The voice of Samish Island with a wonderful signal to be heard on SSB many times a week. Below is his Bio. Hi all you Hamsters. .Thanks for looking at my station.... Started in this wonderful hobby back in the early 60's... The hobby became a job opportunity on a research ship out of Seattle at the age of 17. Then went into the Air Force during the little war in Viet Nam, was in crash rescue and then after I got out went into the Seattle fire department... Was a EMT II... After that I went back out to sea as a ship's radio electronics officer for 15 years......Have a 1st class radiotelegraph license with Radar endorsement...Been retired for over 14 years now and still enjoy the hobby....Also many sailboats over a 35 year period, sailing all over the Northwest....--My other hobby was Assistant Fire Chief of the Samish Island fire department...(:+)

Totally brought tears to my eyes. Especially learning his wife also died 9 days later. Stormy was a light for ham radio. I will miss him.

I was very sad to hear about Stormy's passing. He and I had a common bond in the fire service and we exchanged ideas and experiences many times over the years. Rest in peace my old and dear friend. 73, Ralph w9car
