I was just informed this morning that Tom passed away yesterday. Godspeed Tom. It was good meeting you and racing with you.

BUMMER!  Sad   Brian Fennel posted on FB a week or so ago that Tom was sick, in the hospital, and in need of prayers/well wishes. BUT......I had no idea he was close to death. His house was a sorta "meeting place" when we had the TF race 10-ish(?) years ago in Tulsa. What did he die from??  <shrug>  RIP, Tom!!

I received a PM from Kenny (tinman) about Tom's passing, I too had no idea he was sick. He will certainly be missed by those of us in the TF family who knew him. I had the pleasure of meeting him when we had the TF race in Tulsa in 2014.

Sad to hear also. Went to his house to get something he needed for one of the cars he was running while there in Tulsa. He always seemed to be a positive force in the TurboFord hobby. God Speed Tom!
