I remember when I was a moderator here, he and I spoke on the phone often. I recall that Tom didn’t like a lot of drama and genuinely sought out the good in people. I remember once my wife and father in law were in Tucson for a gem and mineral show and they ran into some trouble. Tom’s son was a Pima County sheriffs deputy and he rode to the rescue for people his dad had only spoken to on the phone. That was just who Tom was. He loved his family, especially his wife, (I believe her name is Becky, if I recall correctly) fiercely.

God bless his family. Where Tom is now, there isn’t any pain or suffering. We will miss you, sir. Until we see you again.

I never personally met him, but exchanged a few PMs nearly two decades ago. He certainly sought the good in me in my youthful days.

Hardships are gone now Tom. See you when my time comes. S!

Threads like these prove yet again why the SimHQ community is simply fantastic.

It is always sad to see these threads come up but it also brings on memories of the departed, thanks to those who share those memories.

Rest in Peace Tom "20mm" and thoughts and prayers to your family going forward in their lives.

Rip mate, we had a couple of good yaks and his humour reminded me of my old man. A stalwart of SimHQ and his family i'm sure. Very sad news.

I couldn’t believe it at the time, I had never won anything worthwhile in my entire life. Two weeks later, a box direct from SimHQ’s palatial high-rise headquarters arrived with my name on it. Yippee!! I won, I won, I won, my major award at last! I think it even had the word “Fragile” stamped on the outside (that’s Italian, you know).

Dang...i was wondering why he dropped off so abruptly. He was a great motivator and conversationalist here at SimHQ. Another one of the reasons why i was glad to login and see what him and many others were posting.

RIP buddy.

RIP Tom

A huge loss to the community, always a great conversationalist. Clear Skies always my friend.

Threads such as these always remind me of how truly fragile life really is......


Kindest regards,

AJ
