Charlie Harris KF5DBN – SK

Charlie Harris KF5DBN went SK on 11 February 2024 after a short illness in Dallas. He was 83. Born in Tulsa, OK. Charlie lived all over the country during his training as a cardiologist. He practiced in many places but ended his career in Temple, Texas at the VA. Our vets held a special place in his heart.

After VA retirement he moved up around Meadow & Central to be closer to his grand kids. His pursuits included flying private planes, fishing and ham radio with the rank of general class. Charlie was an RWK member and enjoyed the meetings and field day adventures. He enjoyed CW as well as SSB & AM phone operations. Left to cherish his memory are many good ham friends, his wife Fran, 3 sons, and many grandchildren. Fair winds and following seas to you Charlie! – Grant W5XJ
