    I worked with Tom when we started at Lear Seiglar,Inc. It was sold to Forstmann Little. We were a part of a conglomerate of 155 divisions when sold. We were sold later to Smiths Industries and became a part of Smiths Aerospace. They had us for 15 years and then sold us to GE Aviation. We both retired in 2014. I respected Tom for his great honest work ethics and friendship. We both serve in the US Navy but never together. I purchased his 4 hp Mercury outboard motor quite a few years ago. I hope his family and friends do well through this time. May God bless you all.
