I am very sorry for your loss. I only met your dad once. It was in July when we completed the transaction when I purchased his MGB. We had a nice conversation. I had no idea that he had passed until I tried to contact him with a couple of questions about the car. May he rest in eternal peace.

Tom will be truly missed by all his fellow teammates at Woodlawn Park in St. Petersburg and the Boomerangs in Gulfport Florida. We will miss his gentle soul and heart of gold. He was a competitor and a gentleman on the ballfield who showed respect for his teammates and the game he enjoyed to play.
We will miss you Tom.
