Shirley Wilkerson (W4TBU)


November 8, 2004


My friend and Elmer Shirley died today. Read about him in Winter 2003 QCWA Journal

Seems my earlier posting of an eloquent piece written by Charlie, K4VUD was removed from the site. I'll attempt to find it and re-post. For now, suffice it to say that Shirley was perhaps the ultimate Elmer for many, many hams in and around the Henderson KY area. He maintained weekly schedules with lots of us, now scattered across the country, right up to the last. A former bunch of wet-behind-the-ears young pups have gone on to become successful professionals in all walks of life, but they all owe a large part of their success in ham radio to this man.
