  • SoCalTom 1940 - 2016

    I just heard some disturbing news on Facebook and not sure if it's correct. Is SoCalTom OK?
    I've had enough of hope & chains.

          That's so terrible... My thoughts are with his family.

          We will miss him dearly.

              Candace is his daughter, she has responded to some posts. If you are on facebook you can go by Thomas Adams facebook page and pay your respects.

                Thank you for the link to his FB page, Mike. I pretty much suck at FB. Such a sad tragedy.

                    OMG , I'm truly heartbroken my family has had the wonderful opportunity a few times to meet them both and have dinner with them at Denny's. They are both truly beautiful people with beautiful soles. I will truly miss them both very much.

                      I am saddened by this news , Brett , myself & our kids have always gone to see Tom & Denise on our family trips, even when Brett and I went over for his bday we caught up with them. We had many great conversations over dinner, with Tom telling the kids his cool story's and many jokes they didn't get but laughed at anyways. Denise was a beautiful lady she loved seeing the kids. They will be greatly missed. Our hearts are heavy with sadness and pain.
                      I hope they find peace and live on together. We send our love to there families RIP T&D ❤️❤️❤️

                          That is sad, especially after beating all his heart problems. May they rest in peace.

                              News travels slowly to those away from the biz. I was saddened to hear the news.
                              Fond memories of SoCal. Rest in Peace Sir Tom.
