Arthur J. Valois, W1UID

John Carreiro, W1ZYV writes on the SEMARA mailing list that Arthur Valois, formerly W1UID has passed away:

A very long time member of our club has passed away. Though Art was on the quiet side, he was a very active and heroic WWII Army Air Core soldier. He flew many missions over Europe. He was mostly a nose gunner on B17’s and B24’s.

His obituary was posted in the Standard Times today. He was born on February 19, 1920 and passed away on May 25, 2009 (aged 89).

Update 03/22/2010: Picture of Art from the 1990s has been added by W1RJC (obtained from a 2005 SEMARA web site archive).
