I don't have many details and I'm still in shock. @SkunkPrince ( Tom) and i connected here over some straps but we quickly became friends on Facebook too l. We chatted almost daily, up to Tuesday night even. I felt a strong pull to wear the Elgin WWI conversion yesterday but resisted. Maybe now I know why..I saw he posted here Wednesday night and his dad posted that he passed away "two days ago". His sister also made a post and they will have more information about services coming soon. I will pass along anything I find to us here as not all were connected off the forum. Wearing this in his honor as it was from my trade with the Connie. We were just making another deal on more straps and buckles and a bracelet for hisnroase old lemania I had the honor of receiving as well. I'm devastated and terribly saddened.
