Silent Key VE6BJK

On Monday September 6th, 2021, Louis (Lou) William Maga, loving husband, devoted father, passed away at age 83.

 

Louie was a very important member of the Central Alberta Amateur Radio Club (CARL originally) for many years. I remember helping him install his tower on the west side of the house and he always had a big smile and wonderful laugh. He was always helping with all club activities for many years. I was so glad I had an hour visit with him on his porch just a few weeks ago when I bought some new RV batteries. I know he will be sadly missed.
