Tracy Lynn Garrison Price (W4WIY)

May 6, 2016

It was a month or two after I met Tracy in 1994 before I learned that she had held a Novice class license for years, but had never been active on the air with it. Her call at that time was KA4VJO. Her grandmother, Miss Dot Bedford (K4AOH/NY4S) elmered me and encouraged me to become licensed again, after having had a Novice license in the early 70's that expired after 2 years and was non- renewable. After I re-licensed, Tracy upgraded to Tech Plus and eventually acquired her late grandfather, Don Bedford's, call of W4WIY. Tracy upgraded to General shortly afterwards. For several years, Tracy was active on 2m and 440 MHz, especially on local repeaters in the Columbia and Lexingon, SC area. Tracy eventually moved back to the Upstate of SC where she was from to be closer to her Mom (KB4VUP) and step- father (KB4VUN). Due to health issues, Tracy wasn't active on the air the last several years. Sadly, I was notified by her sister of her passing after a brief illness on May 6, 2016. RIP Tracy.
