The loss of Tom is tragic, I personally did not know him but do know a few of his friends, they are deeply saddened by his loss. I know as a climber seeing the loss of a fellow climber, at my local climbing area, is a feeling I hope nobody ever has to experience.
My deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends.
Folks, no matter the cause of death lets just pay respect to his family, friends and the life he lived. Do that for him and his family.
