Gordon Kittel (W3GK)

December 11,2016

Gordon was a kind and generous man. For a time he had a ham radio trading and selling business. As a young man Gordon allowed me and K3UL (then WA3EUL) to trade up to better radios while accepting our very modest trades such as a DX-40. There are many stories and I hope others add to this. RIP Gordon. You made this world and our hobby better places. Sid K3SX (K3SME back then)

We just found out that Gordon W3GK died on 12/11. He was a great guy and very active in ham radio for decades. He helped and elmered, bought and sold, was a gentle bright force, and an FRCer. We'll miss him.

I just learned of Gordon's passing tonight. I am deeply saddened by a true gentleman and fine human being. I bought much of my equipment from him because he was so honest and true to his word. His is a great loss to the ham community. RIP Gordon. God bless you. Alan, WA3ZKI

Sad to hear about the passing of Gordon. Remember the Ham Store he had and where I brought my first 2M FM radio (Drake TR22C) among other odds and ends over the years. If you had a question or just needed advice on a piece of gear he certainly went out of his way to help. A true honest gentleman and Real Ham. A great loss to our ranks. RIP Gordon. 73 de Bill WA3GLX (Now ZL3NB)
