Tom represented the best our community had to offer. He was an engineer's engineer who could offer a solution to any problem presented that was enlightened and inspiring, free of charge. I considered him my chief mentor in my build. The gap left in this community by his passing will never be filled and thus he will always be remembered. RIP Tom.
I'm amazed how gutted I feel for a man I never met. Knowing he loved his GT 40 having built it from the ground up and was such an active participant on this forum speaks to how personal a relationship can become with people we mostly speak with via "threads." We all share a common bond and I feel deeply saddened to hear of Tom's passing.
Condolences to those he left behind. May Tom rest in peace.
