Heavy Hearts and Sadness

It is with heavy heart and sadness to report the passing of one of our active members at Sumner ARES. John E. "Ed" Wright, KK4RWI, left our presence to be with the lord. Ed was very active in the group and was always eager to show his home-brew radio projects and his interest in signal direction finding (Foxhunting). He contributed greatly to the Sumner ARES mission and will be greatly missed. Thank you ED, for your volunteer commitment to public service and to the Amateur Radio community. Rest in Peace KK4RWI/SK.
