Tribute to Brooks M. Walker - W8HTP
1919 - August 25, 1959

Brooks was a CD and emergency services operator and died of a horrid death. He tried to pass a semi on a bridge, but fell back in the lane and then rear ended the semi. The truck driver didn't know what was going on but felt a surge, the W8HTP vehicle was stuck in the rear of the semi which pulled him some two miles before another vehicle sped up and advised the driver what was going on. The coroner ruled it a heart attack.
