John Dudley "Dud" Greer was born July 30, 1925 at Sabinal, Texas and died July 19, 2013 He went through all grades there and graduated in 1941. Soon after graduation, he finally got the job he wanted at Kelly Field San Antonio and was trained as an aircraft electrician. Since he was needed in Alaska, he was sent there in '43, got drafted, changed into a uniform and continued to work in the same shop until discharged and put his civies back on. This is about the time he got the HAM bug and he became very adept at it. He had a 70ft antenna there. When Alaska had the earthquake in 1964, hams were the only source of communications and were used to contact people where ever they could. He had Ham friends everywhere. He became like a mentor to younger Hams. Dud stayed faithful to the cause.
Dudley was preceded in death by his wife Bernice Sincleair Greer (they were married 60 years), and one nephew Tommy Greer.
He is survived by his brother, one son, one nephew and one niece.
His brother says, "As I can look back and see now, how thankful I am that so many people had a liking for Dud. It is easier to just say, he was a good guy."
