Walter Shawlee II passed away in his home on the morning of Monday (Sept 04, 2023). His family is going to have a reception this coming Saturday (Sept. 09) from 1500 to 1800 hrs.
The reception will be held at the family's home at 3394 Sunnyside Rd. West Kelowna, BC . Anyone who would like to pass on their condolences to his family are welcome to attend.
Walter hosted many "Stuff Day" events where he invited the OCARC and any other amateur radio operators to sell their own equipment for free.
He was a student in the last OCARC amateur radio course and was working on getting his basic amateur radio qualifications until his health failed.
He had a vast knowledge of electronics, a large supply of parts, and test equipment. He will be certainly be missed by the many people who knew him.
