Tony Froom M0ORF - Silent Key
April-1943  -  24-Jan-2021 , Age 77

Obituary - by Colin Wilson M1OCN

Tony Froom M0ORF, born April 1943, became a SK on 24th January 2021, peacefully at home with his family at his side.

We both joined CARS the same time, some point in the 1990's back in the day of the Marconi hall meets. There were not many Tuesday meets that we missed.

Tony enjoyed collecting vintage gear in dubious condition and had a large array of valve gear, most of which just sat on a shelf.... I think it was the acquiring part that interested Tony. Many CARS members would agree with me after offloading radio bits at the Canvey rallies!

Tony was also a keen sailor, living most of his life at Maldon. Tony regularly crewed with me over to France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Many good memories of these trips.

Tony leaves behind his Wife Mary, Son Oliver and Daughter Alex.

CARS Trainee:
Tony was one of early graduates from CARS training courses, starting with his Foundation pass in Feb-2003. Following that he progressed through the very first CARS Intermediate and Advanced courses respectively in 2003/4. As 2E0HAM, Tony passed his Advanced exam on 13 December 2004 to become M0ORF.
