He was a genuine great person. Loved the sport, loved helping others. Every year he would be the meet direct of the sunset classic road race to raise money for the special needs children in his town. He wasn't your average joe; very inspiring/ motivating person. I have a heavy heart.

Here is a great video about him

Great to see that video. Tom and Bill were good friends, both products of the 60s, both Vietnam objectors--cut from the same mold. We lost a legend today.
