I'm sure all of you who knew Tom Rowland (plumber tom) will share in our deepest sympathies to his family and friends, as well as our loss of a respected expert on this forum. Tom passed away suddenly on August 2, 2004 of a heart attack.
Tom and I had communicated frequently about common interests and this board. Tom was a great family man and enjoyed his fishing and was thrilled to moderate this board. Tom greatly enjoyed working with those who came here for help, and encouraged all of us in finding the solution to problems. Tom invested great personal interest and empathy to anyone who could benefit from his expert advise. We will all miss him terribly.
I was not certain whether this is an appropriate place to share this information and in some way to memorialize Tom. He posted messages to help others on this board on the last day of his life; so it seems fitting that we should remember him here, and carry on his task to help others.
God speed Plumber Tom and one more heart-felt thank you for all you have done.
