    In a tragic accident, Jim Philopena - KB1NXE passed away while trying to save his dog which fell through the ice. Although, not named in this story, this is him. He was a former coworker of mine, great ham radio buddy and I will miss him immensely... :( He was an active poster here, and I'm sure a lot of you have seen his posts and debated him in friendly banter.

    VERY sad to hear. Yes Jim was a pretty active poster here - in fact his last posts it seems were from Thursday.

    what a tragic end. May he and his beloved pooch rest in peace. Condolences to his family and friends.

    That is so sad. I loved his posts and reading his thoughts and opinions. I only knew him on QRZ but he seemed like a very cool guy. If I remember right he had a girlfriend. My heart goes out to her. I will be praying that the Lord of all eternity helps her through this and helps her with the grieving process that can last a long time and hurts more then anything else we can go through. I am working on that right now. It takes a lot of talking and crying.
