His family (wife Jan, previously Secretary to W G Gosewinckel, etc, ) is arranging a private funeral service.
He was in OTC Construction especially Satellite Earth Stations for many years and worked with Jim Robertson and Phil Humphries; all radio specialists.
Ken designed and supervised the construction of the Moree, Carnarvon and Ceduna satellite earth stations.
