The executive is sad to announce that long time club member Wasi Naz- VA3NAZ past away suddenly due to heart failure, on Friday while attending a wedding ceremony in Boston. Funeral is going to be on Saturday January 31th 2015, 11am at Saint Michaelís Church, 310 Central Ave. Fort Erie, Ontario.

Copied from his QRZ Page is the following: Born 1939. Completed my education from The American University of Beirut before immigrating to Canada. I live in Fort Erie, Ontario,just across the Niagara River from Buffalo NY. Fort Erie is situated at lake Erie, where the Niagara river starts from, before going over the falls in Niagara Falls.
I have been involved with various local volunteer organizations such as Red Cross and soccer club. Have served on various volunteer boards. I am a registered Soccer referee and spend the summer refereeing local amateur soccer games.
I am a member of the Niagara Peninsula Amateur Radio Club. I am also a volunteer for the Niagara Peninsula ARES group.
My interests are assembling my own computers and watching sports on the TV.

73ís Wasi, you will be missed.
