John Beckerich (W5YGD)


July 11, 2006


John was my Father in Law,and passed away at age 82. He put in 35+ years at Collins Radio as an engineering and project manager under Art, John had several patents, in radio, radar, and microwaves. Being a ham and an engineer he was more then a father in law to me. He was active until about 4 years ago with his trusty KWM-2. He was active in his church, Knigths of Columbus, Theater Organ Sciety (past president ATOS-Dallas) Collins retiree network, and lunch bunch. All will miss his wit, smile, and the sparkling eyes. RIP Dad.
