I had the privilege of working with Tom for over ten years at TWA. He was my mentor and great friend. We have met for breakfast regularly since he retired. I enjoyed listening to the adventures he had while serving in the merchant marines. He was extremely proud of his family and talked often of them. I will miss him.
