Saddened by Tom’s passing.  My prayers are with Mary Ann and the entire family. I worked for Tom for 10 years and considered him a friend and mentor.  He was a great leader. I will miss him very much

We are so deeply sad to hear Tom had passed away. We have such good memories of the times we shared at the car shows together.  It was so much fun parking our ZR-1 cars side by side. They looked like identical twins.  Even though I am almost 3000 miles away, I still felt a close bond of friendship with the both of you. Tom was a great guy and I will miss him very much.
