Irving Hook (WA1PFS)


October 8, 2004


My Mentor, My Dad.He was my best friend(I am WB1BPV) and was the one who helped me get my ticket. I'm glad he did.I miss him terribly.He enjoyed field days on occasion and also loved listening to the local area repeaters.We used to go to GNARC meetings together.When he became sick, my interst in the hobby was lost but I am slowly getting it back.When my Dad used to commute to Manhattan about 12yrs ago he was active from the train on 2 meters. I think he was on either GNARC or LIMARC as I remember him telling me about how he would chat with a group of commuters, some on the LIE, others mobile.He didn't get any awards other than that of being a phenomenol Dad, a great friend and my Mentor.I am comforted in believing that someday I will see him again.

My condolences. I lost my dad last year. He was 92 years of age. I am 68. No matter how old we may be, we are still orphans after the loss of a parent. I think of my dad every day as you will, yours. The happy mental "snapshots" we carry of our parents will be a great comfort. Better than going to the photo album. God Bless Dick N2UGB

My Condolences on your loss as well and thank you for your kind words Dick. My Dad was able to beat his Lymphoma. Unfortunately it was the Chemo that killed him.He was only 75.I am 46.Another 20 or so years would have been a real blessing and yes, we have a lot of very fond memories as well.Those are what keep me going as well. 73's David
