"I've gone up, I've gone down, I've been bankrupt, I've been broke. But you do it. You do it because we love it more than anything else. That's why you're doing it. If you want a real job, honey, there are a million things you can do. But what we do is not a job. It sounds so stupid... What we do, is a calling, my dear. We make people happy. It's a calling." - Joan Rivers 1933-2014.

I'm interested in contacting his son, or any survivors, just for some closure.
We met in our Westview Park days with wife Mary (The Icicle) at the "Igloo Base" in 1970s Baltimore.
I was a teenaged CB junkie that he took under his wing. Great pals.
We stayed in touch all the way up through Ken's second marriage to Elsie and his living in PA.
He was a devoted husband to both!
Kenneth W. Kromer, Sr.
Then, we abruptly lost communication... He was getting quite elderly at that point... Anybody know the details?
Long live "The Iceman"... "We're 10-8, and 10-10. We're clear..."
(Leave a way to contact you in the comments... I moderate the comments, so don't worry, I won't publish your email address or other contact details. I'll get the details and will delete before publishing... Unless it's just a plain reminiscence meant to be shared...)

Tried that new in-your-face Facebook Messenger app on my tablet for a few minutes this morning... It tried to hijack my address book, then it tried to get me to allow people everywhere to search me by my phone number... Apparently, it didn't like these same settings that I had set previously in Facebook... It also defaulted to making me visible, when I've clearly told FB many times I want to be invisible... From the days of AOL Instant Messaging, I never liked being interrupted by incoming messages... Feel the same way about the phone. Hate when it rings. All are instruments of intrusion... Send me an email... I'll get to it eventually... Urgent? Send a text... I liked when FB Messages ran like email, and abhor that it's trying to act like SMS and phone now... I like my Internet compartmentalized... These providers don't... They want to be my everything... Even Tumblr is trying to act like Twitter and Facebook... Instagram is also an amalgam of platforms... Flickr looks like the others now, too. Keep it up guys, and soon people will refuse to register with ANY of you...
