Ernest Wesley Zrubeck, Jr. (W5DQQ)
Ernest "Icky" Zrubeck was the kind of ham many of us would like to be. Confined to a wheelchair all of his adult life, he was a cheerful soul. He was a friend to traveling hams, whether ashore or at sea. Some remember him as a pal who would ragchew with them on the air as they traveled across the country on business. Seafaring hams would remember his willingness to run phone patches for them from his home in Corpus Christi. I remember him as a good example of the best on-the-air manners. Sometimes he would spell out his call as Whiskey Five Duck Quack Quack. It always brought a smile to me.
73, Icky, and good DX from Tom AB5XZ, ex K5YFK.
