Chapter 36 - Northwest Indiana

~ Creaky Knees and Rusty Keys ~


Carl Konefsky, W9TAD, SK


(Click for larger view.)

It is with great sadness that we mark the passing of our first active Chapter 36'er, Carl Konefsky, W9TAD. Carl attended our first reorganizational meeting during the blizzard of Feb. 2009. He was not yet eligible to join the QCWA at that time. Though he wasn't always a regular at our dinners, he did attend when he could, including 5 meetings in 2011 before his health started to deteriorate. The photo above is from July 2011 and is one of the best ones I have of him. Carl was a career car salesman and the consumate wheeler-dealer. He had a charisma and leadership ability that few can match. He was born August 13, 1934 and died December 30, 2012, age 78. His obituary can be read here. We will miss you, Carl.    ...-.-
