Wow, thank you!   All money collected so far has been sent to Darren's friend and neighbor Brenda.  She is making arrangements with a funeral home for services.   If more money is collected, it will also be sent to Brenda.   I covered all fees charged by this website, so every dollar donated went to Brenda.  -- Roger Bly

Amateur Radio lost a saint. Darren Rumas (N6VGU) was a huge influence on the ham radio community, especially the 147.435 repeater. He was a good friend and mentor of mine. He fixed my broken equipment literally hundreds of times, as well as everyone else's. He was affectionately known as "The Moo," "Pugsley", "Peter Rabbit", "Cock Robin", "Gregory Pecker" and more. He was a man of integrity, friend to all hams and a technical wizard of all things above 50Mhz. Without Darren, there would be no 435 as it is today.  -- Dennis Keizer W6DEK


Donations will go towards funeral services and wake for Darren.  His friend and neighbor Brenda Gates is planning the services and the money will go to her.   Any remaining money will be contributed to whoever takes the lead on a  wake / memorial event.  -- Roger Bly K6MWT (858) 775-2859

From one of your non-ham fans in the S.F.Valley. Sorry to hear you go. But Santiago is so much better, I understand. And I just found you on RadioRef lol. My father was a ClassA radiotelephone operator and a HAM in the '50's. Darren was a cool dude. I'd like to help y'all. *huggss*

Dear Darren, Thank you for being so kind to me. I remember the day you showed up just to help me with my remote. You never asked to use it, be paid, or anything of the sort. You just helped me. Thank you for all the work on my blown up equipment that flowed like a river to your bench. I will miss the times we spent just talking while you fixed my blunders. I will never forget your kindness and contribution to our community of knuckleheads. You are truly a saint. Love, the QAH.

Barren, it was nice to meet you in heaven. Thanks for your understanding, compassionate words and the dog bone. Sorry it took me so long to donate. It’s hard for a dog in heaven to get a credit card.
