ARRL Southern Florida Assistant Section Manager Ray Kassis, N4LEM,
of Cocoa, Florida, died unexpectedly on November 9. He was 69.
Licensed as WB4CTZ in 1966, he served the ARRL Southern Florida
Section for many years in various capacities, most recently as Space
Coast District Emergency Coordinator (DEC) and Assistant Section
Manager (ASM).

Kassis had been the Brevard County Emergency Coordinator (EC) since
1991, and he was instrumental in constructing several mobile
communications units in the area. He was the owner of, and air
personality on, WWBC radio, where he maintained a second ham
station.

"We have suffered a great loss in our Section family with Ray's
passing," said Southern Florida Section Manager Jeff Beals, WA4AW.
"Ray was a dear friend and a valued member of my section staff."
