Silent Key

Ismael Tejeda, KJ6LVY


I am Sad to report the passing of my good friend and fellow Amateur Radio Operator, KJ6LVY.  His infectious laugh and tremendous spirit both on and off the radio will be missed...

 

Ismael Tejeda, KJ6LVY
Sep 3, 1955 - Oct 26, 2018

Ismael Tejeda passed away peacefully on October 26, 2018 in Modesto at the age of 63. Ismael was born September 3rd, 1955 in Guadalajara, Mexico and has been a resident of Escalon for the past 8 years.

Ismael was very involved with Amateur Radio. He has made several friends over the years across the US and Mexico over the radio. Ismael also loved to listen to music and always had it playing. He enjoyed traveling and always loved to see new places. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

Ismael leaves behind his mother, Sofia Barrera and his two siblings, Carlos Barrera and Amparo Cornejo along with his nieces and nephews.

Ismael was my good friend.  He was always willing to get involved with Amateur Radio projects from Elmer University, to Club Activities and Field Day.  One of my best memories was the year we traveled together to visit four different club field days on Saturday.  He loved to go to "the candy store" and check out new equipment.  He traded lots of equipment over the years I knew him and one of his greatest Ham Radio contacts was with the International Space Station.  He proudly displayed his 11 x 13 QSL card from the ISS.
