It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Roger Ronek on Thursday April 25, 2024 at the age of 88. Loving husband of 53 years to Rose Marie Ronek.

  • Dear Rose Marie and family. How sad to think of Roger, KC7HAP, as being what is known in the amateur radio world, a “Silent Key”. He truly enjoyed his radio. Although we became separated by many miles, he was always our friend. God bless Rose Marie for her loving care. Larry, KW7I & Donna, KD7ZIJ Salem, Oregon, USA
