Jerry Overeynder (W6IWR)
I want to remember a good ham friend
that I never met in person, saw a
picture of, or talked to on the phone -
only over the airwaves.
My first QSO with Jerry was in July 1981
on SSB, and I had 79 more QSO's with him
all using the Clover digital mode, the
last in April 2012.
Over those 30+ years, I got to know him
pretty well, learning about how was a
care-taker of his ailing wife when he
himself was in his 80's. He told me
later of her death. I later got a
chuckle when he told me he began dating
again at age 88 or so, going dancing.
He will be greatly missed.
