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
