He was 17 and had been a defensive end on the school's junior varsity football team in his sophomore year. He also was a classical guitarist who played in the school's guitar ensemble.

From the age of 14 until about a year ago, young Wilcke worked at McDonald's restaurants, first near Bel Air and later in Jacksonville.

Born in Topeka, Kan., he moved to the Monkton area with his family in 1985. He attended Jarrettsville Elementary School and North Harford Middle School.

A memorial service for young Wilcke was to be conducted at 1 p.m. today at the Unity Center of Christianity, 2901 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

He is survived by his parents, Richard W. and Janet S. Wilcke; three sisters, Ardith J., Caroline M. and Madlen M.; and a brother, Benjamin L. Wilcke. All are of Monkton. He is also survived by his grandmothers, June C. Wilcke of West Sand Lake, N.Y., and Janet Nyquist of Feura Bush, N.Y. Charles E. Stuebgen, a Social Security Administration employee, died Monday night after an automobile accident that evening on Dogwood Road in Baltimore County. He was 59.

According to county police, a car driven by Cory E. Daniel, 29, of the 1200 block of Kevin Road struck a deep puddle of water on Dogwood Road near Whitestone Road and went out of control, crossed the center line and collided with Mr. Stuebgen's oncoming car.

Mr. Stuebgen was pronounced dead at 9:25 p.m. at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center. Mr. Daniel was charged with failing to keep to the right of center.

Mr. Stuebgen, a native of Pittsburgh and a Navy veteran of the Korean War, worked for 33 years at Social Security. At the time of his death, he held full-time jobs in the supply management section and as a security guard.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at the Singleton Funeral Home, 1 Second Ave. S.W., Glen Burnie.

J. Gordon Neuberth

Made TV news antennas

J. Gordon Neuberth, who owned companies that made the antennas used on mobile television news trucks, died Sunday of cancer at his home on Cleghorn Road in Cockeysville. He was 62.

Since 1971, he had been vice president for engineering and part owner of NSI, which makes the sending and receiving antennas used for live television news broadcasts.

In 1965, he started Nurad Inc., which made television antennas and antennas used on warplanes and in other defense applications. He served as president of that company until he sold it in 1986. Later, he bought back the part of the business dealing with television antennas.

From 1960 until it was closed in 1964, he was one of the owners of Applied Microwaves, a company in the field of microwave antennas.

Born in Baltimore, he was a 1949 graduate of the Polytechnic Institute and earned an electrical engineering degree at the Johns Hopkins University in 1952.

He then went to work for the Bendix Radio Division in Towson, but his work there was interrupted by service in the Army Signal Corps in the mid 1950s.
