I just heard the news that Joe Frith, KJ4EXT passed away early Friday morning. He checked in on our Nets on occasion, and also attended TARC events when he could.

He was easily identifiable by his identification, “this is KJ4EXT – Joe – Shellman.” For the longest time, several of us thought Shellman was his last name, rather than the town he lived in. He was very outgoing and friendly, and will be missed.

Please keep his family in your prayers, as this was unexpected….Mike

  1. So sorry to hear of Joe’s passing. I have his family in my prayers.

    I haven’t known Joe long but always got a kick out of him calling on the repeater with “This is KJ4EXT, Joe, downtown Shellman”. I’ll miss the friendly smile he always had when I met him at verious ham radio functions.

    Rest in Peace Joe. I will miss you, as I’m sure Downtown Shellman will.

    John (aka WA4FRI)
