Jim Arp (WA8CDD)

April 2006

I don't have the exact date for Jim's death, it was unexpected and I'll look it up and perhaps add the exact date. What hit me the hardest at Jim's viewing was the mortician had set his features with that little poop eatin' grin he always had when I would cut up with him and tell him he was older than dirt, was he Mose's babysitter? I mourn for my friend Jim, I mourn for the times we were together that will never be again. 73 you old geezer yer buddy Corny k0rny

I met Jim when I was a new Tech back in 1966 in Kettering Ohio. I worked Jim on two meter AM and he invited me over to his shack for a visit. I was a new ham and just 17 years old and thrilled to meet a fellow ham who I had talked to on the radio. I saw Jim many times since then over the years at local events where he played in a band. It was always a pleasure to see him and we always reminisced about old times. My call was WA8QNR back then.
