EPTAC Master Instructor Bob Heckman Continues to Convert People Even On Medical Leave

Posted on 28st November, 2012 by Mark Pilkington

Some of our instructors don’t know when to quit. EPTAC’s Master Instructor, Bob Heckman recently had a stroke and has been going through speech therapy and physical therapy. We are all pulling for him and can’t wait to get him back playing with us.

It seems he cannot stop teaching people and letting others know how the world of electronics is growing and changing. In one of his visits for physical therapy, Bob decided to pull out his tooling and start training one of the occupational therapist on the finer points of board assembly. Not sure Bob realized that these folks are here to rehabilitate him, not the other way around.
