I haven't met Tommy in person but I helped him with his taxes the last few years. He was a very kind guy and I could tell he loved what he was doing. My condolences to his family and friends.

I lived on the Philippine island next to Tommy’s at around the same time as his Peace Corps service. I remember his band and photography. Dumaguete is a fun city to be assigned to. How fun to read Bill Benjamin’s message below about his early months in service. Tommy found his purpose early in life, which is more than we can say for a lot of us.
William Benjamin (former Country Director US Peace Corps Philippines) left a message on June 20, 2021:
Our heartfelt condolences to Tommy’s family and many friends worldwide. I recall visiting Tommy when he was in the first few months of his Peace Corps service at the Marine Lab in Dumaguette, Philippines. Difficult to believe now and like many Volunteers early in their service, Tommy questioned whether he could help the lab in their mission of environmental understanding and education. The Lab Director noted Tommys communications and photographic skills and how they could support the technical work done at the Lab. Peace Corps Philippines staff encouraged Tommy to give it some time, get to know the community and explore the magnificent Philippines natural environment. It goes without saying that Tommy’s contributions to the Lab and protection of our marine and natural ecosystems are immeasurable. Through his unique perspective, photography and story telling he captured the hearts and minds of millions and fostering respect for the sheer beauty and fragility of our natural world. His life and legacy continue to make the world a better place. Stay with us a little longer Tommy and we will stay with you!

Heartfelt sympathies to the family and especially his parents and Preston on the loss of their son & brother. Our family sends our thoughts and prayers. Tommy had an incredible eye for nature and zeal for life and it shows in his amazing work.
Nancy J Nelson left a message on June 10, 2021:
I am so sorry to hear of my young friends death at such an early age. I worked with Tommy at TU and he was very special to me. He was always receptive of my ideas for the magazine and the calendar. My heart goes out to his parents, family and friends especially to his parents as it is so hard to loose a child at any age. Our son died 24 yrs ago at age 29 and it is still hard at times to realize and think what he could be doing today. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
