Gordon Deppe (W6QFI)
My Father-in-law and elmer is now a SK, a victim of Parkinson's. We've been expecting it for a long time but it still doesn't make it easy. A USAF radio operator in the air and in on ground in Alaska during the late 40's to early 50's.
Gordon looked over my shoulder as I assembled my first series of Heathkits in the early 70's. When I got my ticket, he was my first contact. He was a cw op mainly with his brothers in Minnesota.
A true engineer through and through, his children nicknamed him 'the captain' because of his passion for detailing all projects down to the last '.' and then double checking it. He was the last of three brothers, all hams, to pass. 73 Gordon TU
