JW Wilson served faithfully as A NCS station on the KTN, once a regional traffic net until he was told he was not needed under a new way of doing things.  JW did his duties with pride and stated his case for a friendly functional net one time after the , as obviously he was disappointed that his faithfulness was not wanted by the KY ARRL power structure.  JW never understood the idea that anything was impossible and was a good conversationalist on all technical topics.  On and off the air he was a friend to all and avoided factionalism.

Richard Kirby visited JW and Marge overnight riding his Harley over to see JW.  Both of these real men were in good health and somehow we had a feeling that it was the last time they would share face to face fellowship in this world.
