From ARES
 

For those who didn’t hear, we lost a friend of ARES yesterday. Skip Voros WD9HAS passed away yesterday morning. Skip was a great partner of ARES and provided many our severe weather trainings. He was that calm voice on the radio during so many weather nets over the years.  He will be deeply missed by many of us. SK WD9HAS Skip Voros RIP.
