We are sad to hear the passing of Keith Estey, VE1KRE (1938 to 2021) on February 7, 2021.  Keith was formerly a net controller on the IRG Net, Miramichi Area VHF Net, and the Professional Loafers Net.  Our condolences go out to all Keith's family and friends

A link to the obituary is found here:

Keith most recently resided at the York Care Centre.  He still kept in touch via a 2m radio to reach the local repeaters to chat with friends on the air, and was still active on local IRG repeaters and nets up until very recently.
