VERNON L THACKERAY (W5CSY)


December 5, 2004


Just the best

Contributed by: Tom O. Kelsey (K5TOK)


He was such a great guy... one of those you remember all your life. He was one of the 2 most intelligent people I ever met, was that way even in his 90's. His body failed, but his mind was like the Energizer Bunny! Gave me support and some needed equipment when I became a ham. Still using the aluminum tubing on my inverted V. He donated his equipment and money in lieu of flowers to the Albuquerque Amateur Radio Caravan Club, he's giving even after he's gone. Guess he's in that great shack in the sky :)
