Farewell to Tom Allensworth

Recommended Posts

I came home from work and navigated to Avsim like I have done everyday for the past ten years, only to learn this very sad news. This is a special community founded by a remarkable man. Thank you Tom. This flight is for you...

Thanks Tom for bringing this community together. Here's to you, and hoping you've found clear skies with 60fps and sliders to the right

Though I didn't really post much here, but AVSIM also means a lot to me for my 10-year FS experience. Knowing Tom's passing makes my heart drop a minute and make me realize I should make this post here to say thanks for everything he contributed to this great community.

My condolences to Tom's family and may him rest in peace.

Sad news. Of course I didn´t know him personally, but he has been a key person to build up this community and flightsimming friendship. My prayers with his loved ones.

While not unexpected after reading Tom's own brave announcement not long ago, I still feel sad, now reading of the passing of someone who did so much for our flightsimming community. My signature does in no way reflect my feelings at this moment. RIP, Tom.


Cheers,
Emile Bax.

Very sad news. My thougts are with the ones he leaves behind. 

Tom was very helpful when I started advertising a few months ago. He was one of those rare special people, who make the difference..... 

 

Fair winds and blue skies Tom.

I was shocked to see this today.  I usually only have time for a few forums here and didn't get wind of his situation.  I'm very sorry and saddened about this.  I have Tom to thank for brokering the know how, and therefore a joyful and peaceful experience of flight simulation, a hobby that catches dreams and can fill the mind with the wonder of flight.   He will always be a person whose name I remember for making this place a worthwhile spot for contemplative computational aeronautics.  Thank you Tom Allensworth for your profound legacy.
