Isle, MN


December 7, 1933 - June 13, 2007

Tom G. Jameson passed away on Wed. June 13th at the St. Cloud Hospital at the age of 73.  Tom was born in Clinton, Iowa on Dec. 7, 1933 to Ralph & Helen (Gilbert) Jameson.  Tom entered the Navy after graduation.  Tom married Molly and together they had a son, Joel.  They later divorced.  Tom worked for Honeywell for 25 years and "retired".

Tom, better known as W0KGW to his ham buddies, was active in the Maritime Mobile Emergency Network and Packet radio.  Tom received his ham license and call letters 50 years ago.

Tom moved to the Isle area and designed his house in the woods.  In 2001 he met the love of his life, Jean.  They were married Nov. 2, 2003.  Tom worked on computers in their store and ate the profits in their ice cream store.
