W7SFO writes "K7CTT Ray Larsen passed away 7-January-2001 in Tacoma,Wa. Ray was a General class operator until his health kept him from being able to climb the ladder to his shack. I can remember going up that very ladder as a child, looking at all the equipment lighting up the area with its "GLOW"! Ray was a former member of the Radio Club of Tacoma. He also was very active with MARS service for many years. Ray will be missed by all. 73 to you Ray!"
