Fred Fox VE3XOF, SK

From Gord VE3CNA:

I have just received the sad news that Fred Fox, VE3XOF, passed away earlier today Wednesday, February 18, 2015. His wife, Chris just called me with the news and asked me to tell his friends in Amateur Radio.

Fred had been a long-time member of Scarborough ARC and a member of Senators. He had been active on the Executive of the club and a Field Day regular. Recently he had been suffering from Parkinson’s disease and had moved to a nursing home for the care that he needed.

Please let others know of his passing as you think appropriate. My next email will go out to the Senators.
