It is with deep sorrow that I report to you the passing of a long-time friend and fellow amateur radio operator. Larry Ohs, KCØLXQ passed this morning after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Larry was a member of the LARC and a long-time member of ARES. Larry filled the role of FEMA Liaison to LEOC. Some of you may remember the tornado that took out Hallam, NE. Larry was assigned to Point 5.0. Located just a mile west of Hallam, the tornado completely destroyed his car. Fortunately, Larry escaped.
Recently, Larry and I rode together to Cass Co. for a SE Nebraska NeARES presentation held by James Nelson. We had some real laughs and some serious talks about life in amateur radio. As a retired Lawyer of business contracts, Larry’s input and assistance have paved the way for many of the club’s ventures. Larry not only assisted LARC but, many other clubs including the formation of NeARES.
Our long talks on the phone and the many laughs will be greatly missed. R.I.P, Larry! KCØLXQ /SK
** UPDATE **
Larry’s Funeral is scheduled for Thursday, December 30 at 10:30 am at Southgate United Methodist Church, 3500 Pioneers Blvd, Lincoln NE.
