I just saw him on Avsim in the last few days. So unexpected despite his earlier announcement. Rest in peace.

Avsim has meant so much to be in the past few years, and Tom deserves the utmost respect in his passing. I hope Avsim has another 18 years under it's belt.

My heart is so heavy right now. I so hoped that his time was not as limited as he thought it might be. THANK YOU for providing me and so many others with a community to call home in the flight simulation hobby. Rest peacefully, sir.

 

To Tom's family - you have my deepest sympathies.
