I'm sorry to say that Forest Cummings W5LQU passed away on Saturday, March 16, 2019. Forest was a long-time member of the Richardson Wireless Klub and was a Director Emeritus of the klub until his recent move to Corinth, TX, to be closer to his son. Forest was born on January 23, 1929. Following his graduation from Crawfordsville High School in 1946, he proudly served in the U.S. Navy from 1946-50 as an Electronics Technician 2nd Class. After his honorable discharge from the Navy, he attended Purdue University and received a BAEE in 1953. After he graduated from college, he accepted a job with Collins Radio Co. in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in 1952. He and his family transferred to the company’s offices in Richardson, Texas, in 1962. He was an Electrical Engineer for 31 years for Collins and also worked for five years for E-Systems in Garland, Texas, before retiring. He was an active Amateur Radio operator for more than 50 years. A memorial service and burial are pending at Restland Funeral Home in Dallas. As soon as details are known they will be passed along to the klub. In lieu of flowers, consider a donation to the Spring Valley Foundation at the Spring Valley Methodist Church, 7700 Spring Valley Road, Dallas, TX 75254. Please keep his wife Sue, and his family in your thoughts.
