    I knew Tom primarily through Navy MARS. (Military Auxiliary Radio System) He was very active in MARS and could always be relied upon to be available when he was needed. I enjoyed driving with Tom to several Hamfests in Shelby over the years. My memories of Tom are that he was always a gentle man as well as a gentleman. I am proud to have known Tom, NNN0HRW.
