I have some more bad news for the Nebraska Section.

I received word from KF0FO's wife that Jim Peterson, KF0FO passed away this morning at 3:30 am. Jim had been ill for quite some time with heart problems, pneumonia, kidney failure and dehydration.

Jim was a past president of the AK-SAR-BEN ARC, Douglas County EC and Section Emergency Coordinator. He was an ARRL & QCWA Chapter 210 member as well as a member of several Clubs in Nebraska.

In 1996, he suffered a major stroke that forced him to retire, but Jim stayed active for many years after his stroke. He is survived by his wife Marilyn and Daughter Holly and husband. He was preceded in death by son Steve.

Jim will be cremated on Tuesday and no funeral per his request. At this time, Marilyn is NOT taking phone calls. She is pretty grief-stricken. A side note, Jim's wife and my wife are 3rd cousins. Jim and I were fairly close and I will miss him.

73, Bill McCollum, KEØXQ
