We will both miss Ken on our ham radio, and don't know if we can go to work anymore without Ken telling us both to "hit the road" to make the SS money. Our hearts are broken and we will miss him so. KE4VPD & KF4TJR.

Ken Wages was a good ham radio friend and will be missed greatly by us all. I will forever miss talking to him and carrying on with fun and laughter on our ham frequency of 3.975. His mother made me and my wife a "Melba Cake" and she was so sweet to welcome me when I went down the street where she lived to pick it up. Ill continue to love and miss you Ken ....73 my friend of the airwaves.
