Default Tabman, Passed?

I just read on another site that Tom "Tabman" from Bennett trim tabs passed away.

I’m really so sorry to confirm it’s true.

Its so clear Dad put his heart and soul into helping here! Five years ago when my Dad was really sick, the community here really helped him and helped me get through it. I’m really greatful to be reading all of the wonderful things people have to say about Dad.

If anybody has questions- pm me

If he hasn't shown up on this post by now, then it must be true. He had a real talent for responding to customers almost instantaneously 24/7.

He was always willing to help, seemed like a good man.

Very sad and a real loss to the community if true.

Fair winds and following seas Tom.

No way! Son of a bitch and yes he is/ was the most helpful person ever when it came to trim tab systems. I spoke to him several times, didn't sound to me as if he was an older gentleman. I hope like hell this is "fake news" and he responds. Miss him already and I'm not sure he's gone
