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.
