“I’m a big guy who’s finally not ashamed of how he looks. I like to
think that I’m a little more intelligent than most, articulate,
charming, sweet, and in possession of a truly twisted sense of humor
and outlook on life.

Despite the last paragraph, I am also relatively shy. And was once
described by a friend as “the most introverted extrovert” he knew. I
get out more when I’m “in here” on the internet.

Considered everything from a lovable teddy bear and a freelance writer
who does an A&E column at the local weekly newspaper, to a laborer
(land surveying with my dad) and an evil genius. I also tend to the
library at an GLBT community center.”

Remembering Tom. “But the conversation has just begun…”

Our friend and “new chief” passed away on May 4, 2009.

Tom was a fan of World News Now, and they showed this tribute to him:
