Jay Robinson N7MLF-SK
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Jay Lynn Robinson. He passed away peacefully from this life and was called to heaven on Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at 12:05 am in Reno, NV at the age of 78. He is a Veteran of the US Army. He was born in EL Reno, Oklahoma May 29, 1942. He was preceded in death by his loving parents Helen L. (Robinson) Ellison, Orlan Robinson and his brother Arlan D Robinson. He is survived by his son Arlan of Sparks NV, his brother Ernest Robinson of Stillwater OK, Sister Debbie McGuire of Oklahoma, grandchildren and many other family members and friends. Jay had a journey of jobs. Some of the jobs he loved were Aids Ambulance Service, US Forest Service, truck driving and Safety and Security. In 2010 he retired from Red Hawk Golf and Resort in Sparks NV as a Safety and Security Specialist.
One of his biggest hobbies he loved was communication. He started in the 60?s, to the 80?s with CB radio. Then Jay?s journey into amateur radio began in early 80?s. He knew that amateur radio operators helped the community in many different ways. He loved helping special events that needed communication. At that time he was a member of Wide Area Data Group. He was so excited when he advanced in the hobby and became known by the call sign of N7MLF. He was hooked on the hobby. He said Ham radio was the place to be! He was a very proud owner of a mountain top repeater for the Reno and Sparks, area. He also was a current member of the Sierra Nevada Amateur Radio Society. He loved classic cars, going to classic car shows in the summer, doing photography, BBQ?s and family time. The family hopes to hold a Celebration of Life when it is safe to do so. In lieu of flowers, the family welcomes donations in his name to the Veterans Guest House of Reno NV or the Sierra Nevada Amateur Radio Society in Reno NV, in appreciation for their prayers and many acts of kindness for us and for so many others.
