KIRK VAN SICKLE (KA2DAD)


August 8, 1999


Kirk was a good friend of mine and was taken two days after my friend W2FCH, the only difference being that Herb, W2FCH was 86 and Kirk was in his 40's. They were two rooms apart at Central Suffolk Hospital in Riverhead , NY, on Long Island. When I got back on the air in 1993 it was Kirk who helped me get the antenna up and loaned me his Yaesu until I came up with something. He was always there when I needed some technical help. That's the way he was right up to the end. The last time I spoke to him he just wanted to go home and get on the air. You know, so did Herb. Kirk and Herb, good friends --gone but not forgotten.
