I met Tom on the PCT this year. I was at Kennedy Meadows south and wandered over to the two guys playing chess. Tom was being trounced and I sat down to play the winner. A few weeks later, after snows had pummeled us, I followed Tom out of Lone Pine towards Forrester Pass.

I followed him, because he filled me with confidence that we could make it over Forrester. I'm 63 and a novice hiker, but I ran parts of the Sierras to keep up with Tom.

We arrived at Crabtree Meadow and many of us waited for Tom to get back from his attempt at snowy Whitney. Our tents blossomed white with inches of snow that night. But I was confident we'd make Forrester the next day.

On our way to Forrester we met a dozen people returning the other direction heading back out at Lonepine. They had failed to cross Forrester. Tom, with his simple quiet demeanor said, "well they obviously didn't know to climb the rocks to the left". And that day, we climbed the rocks on the left and crossed the pass in a snowstorm following Tom and others' butt slide path into the 20 foot dark grey visibility dropping before us.

Were it not for meeting this wonderful man, I would have turned back at the Sierras and likely not have finished my trek. Crossing the Sierras was a piece of cake to him.

To his father and mother, what a wonderful man you raised. I would trust him with my life.

I initially knew about Flying Fish from the As It Happens documentary. He was hiking the PCT again this year, and I met him when we were both over 2000 miles in. I talked with him for a long while next to a lake in northern Oregon that we camped at with some other people. He was so calm and easy going, nothing could bother him.

We were both from Boulder, and I was looking forward to staying friends with him after the trail. Everyone who met Flying Fish loved him, and I am happy that I got to meet him in such a beautiful place on our long walk.
