Farewell to Tom Allensworth

Recommended Posts

Very saddened by Tom's passing, even more so since he went so quickly.  This wonderful web site exists through his labor of love.  Because of him it has struck just the right balance between allowing vigorous discussion and prohibiting rants and personal attacks. I never met him but I did correspond with him a few times -- he was very helpful and straightforward.  I will miss him as will all of us.  My condolences to his family and friends.

Rest in peace Tom. I'm sorry to have never met you, but I know you were the kind of person I would have looked up to and used as a model of what my life should have been. Thank you for that. Thank you for AVSIM. I have lost a friend I never got to know and that is my sad lose - but this isn't about me, it is about a man that will be missed and remembered for what he has done for a rather unknown hobby. I swear for the rest of my life every time I see a helicopter, a janitor or a cup of coffee I will think of Tom and every time I come to AVSIM I will shed a tear for his lose of the ultimate battle.

 

To his family I cannot put my sympathy, my empathy and my condolences to words.

 

Good bye Tom, the friend I never knew but would have loved,

My deepest sympathies to his family and loved ones. His passion and enthusiasm for flight simulation was infectious. I can't even begin to think about the state the hobby would be in, had he not made the contribution he did. 

 

Rest in Peace, Tom.

With Tom, another one of a great generation passes, somebody who loved not only those close to him but cared enough to share so much of himself with strangers through his hobby! My most grateful respects to this wonderful man and my heartfelt wishes to his family and friends in this terrible time.

Oh, my word! I offer my sincere condolences and respect to Tom Allensworth's family and friends. I grieve the loss of the Founder of this incredible website that has touched countless thousands of flight simulation enthusiasts, myself among them. He will be sorely missed.

 

Tom, thank you so much allowing me the honor of being a part of this amazing phenomenon, AVSIM.

 

With respect and admiration,

I really am still too upset about Tom's untimely departure. I have never met Tom in person, but emailed and chatted with him countless times, since the very early days of avsim in the 90's.

 

As a friend, my prayers are with his family, and I hope they will get the opportunity to see through this forum thread how loved, appreciated and respected Tom was. As a flight simmer, I hope the Board of Directors and avsim staff will continue to keep avsim what it was designed for - a free and open place for like-minded from all around the world.

 

Rest in peace Tom, you'll always be my pilot in command!!!!!

Tom gave me a chance to learn some things when I needed that opportunity to learn them.  I appreciate the chance I got to work with Tom in an earlier time here at AVSIM (In several capacities, the details of which are really not important at this stage) and hope that the spirit of his vision will live on.

 

Tom gave a lot to the community and hobby, we owe him respect for this.

 

Thank you for everything you did for me Tom.
