    Default Thomas Chavez - BettaBlue

    I don't recall if there was a post on here but something I was doing today made me think of him and how sad I am that he passed on last month. I'm posting now just in case there wasn't a post last month.

    That's real sad. I considered Thomas to be a friend. He endured a long and tough battle.

    RIP Thomas

    Thanks Daniel for making this post. I was not yet aware of Tom's passing. This is very sad news, indeed.

    I had quite a few dealings with Thomas. I knew his health was not the best but this is the first time I heard this sad new.

    Daniel:

    Thank you for posting. I had no idea Thomas had passed away.

    He was a neat guy. He loved restoring “Alice”.

    I spent many messages helping him with his 5161, and he got excited enough to try to start a 5161 serial number/owners database. I didn't know that he had passed I'm very sad to hear this. He was truly entertained by the hobby, never seeming frustrated by it.
