Tom Ecker is a small-town Iowa boy who grew up to visit 66 countries on all seven continents, attended ten Olympic Games, leading tours to some, writing about others, and who, when he retired, figured out a way he and his wife Carol, could cruise the world for free!  Ecker was put in charge of athletics programs in Iowa’s second largest public school district.  Captivated by word puzzles, he created his own game, calling it Wuzzles.  Eckers puzzles are seen everyday by millions of people around the world.
