ANN & BILL SALERNO

 

 

W2ONV passed away on Sunday, August 12, 2007. He had been fighting a battle with scleroderma for the past year. Unfortunately, his form of the disease was somewhat aggressive and atypical. His disease morphed into several other immune related diseases in the last months of his life causing the disease to rapidly progress. He will be greatly missed.

Bill's interest in radio spanned a lifetime. When one reads the definition and intent of ham radio,  W2ONV was a stellar example. He took pride in his international community of friends and looked at them as his extended family.

In honor of Bill (the original and quintessential W2ONV - ONE - NICE - VOICE) the call sign "W2ONV"  has been transferred to Bill's son William D. Salerno. 

_

Ann Salerno, Bill's adoring wife of over 57 years and loving mother of William D. Salerno passed away on July 10, 2009 of complications of a chronic illness. The Salerno household was defined by her gracious hospitality and caring for both their local and international neighbors.
 

The "Bill Salerno (W2ONV) and Ann Salerno Memorial Fund of the ARRL" has been established to foster the development of youth in amateur radio. Donations are being accepted directly to the ARRL.

Donations can be mailed directly mail to the ARRL (the ARRL notifies the family of all contributions):

73's from Studio B, a farewell salute to W2ONV  by John / K3UR

"W2ONV"

W2ONV, has become a silent key,
he was such a special man, always lending a helping hand,
his audio ranked at the top of the list,
yes Bill Salerno will sure be missed,
the New York Yankees was his team,
and educated aluminum was his beam,
the whole world listened to ONV,
he spread good will continually,
my heart is heavy as I write this poem,
God bless you Bill in your new home,
the lights are dim in Studio B,
and now we bow on bended knee,
one last kiss to his U-87,
and now Bill's finally home in heaven.
