 Just after midnight on June 12, our dearest friend Munir (Abou Youssef) – VE3MYN/VA3MN passed away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 71. In the last few months Munir’s fought relentlessly his illness but finally decided to give up and rest in peace leaving us and his loved ones shocked with a great vacuum he is leaving behind.

Imagining Amateur Radio and the Sunday Radio Amateurs of Lebanon (RAL) weekly net without Munir is so painful and hard to believe. Amateur Radio operator for over 25 years and a RAL member, Munir despite his vision impairment impressed the word with his capability to operate Amateur Radio and live a normal life.

A generous, loving and caring man who made RAL and the Hams in Lebanon feel as extended family members of his. He was recognized in 2009 by RAL for his dedication and contribution to the Amateur Radio community.

Munir is survived by his wife Thereze Diab of 51 years, his daughter Norah, sons Joe, John, Chad and grandchildren Munir Jr. (James), Justin, Andrew, Alexander, Sofia, Marcus, Mathew, Michelle and Michael.

In this time of bereavement, and on behalf of the Radio Amateurs in Lebanon (RAL) convey their heartfelt condolences and sympathy to his family, friends and to all those who admired him as they mourn his loss. May his soul rest in peace.

Family and friends may visit at the Scott Funeral Home, 420 Dundas Street East, Mississauga (905-272-4040) on Sunday, June 13, Monday, June 14 from 2-4 and 6-9 p.m. Mass to be held at St. Patrick's Catholic Church, 921 Flagship Drive, Mississauga. Please call for Mass time.
