    Tom Jenks

    I was surprised and saddened to learn of the passing of one of our VFTT members and frequent guest at gatherings and related social events. Will miss his good nature and humor not to mention the first cup of coffee at gatherings.

    Rest in peace, teejay, and condolences to your family and friends from all of us at VFTT.org.

    So sad to hear of teejay's passing. He was a great guy and will be missed by many.

    Yep, he was a good soul and is missed.

    I believe that he for several years was in charge of the "Leather Apron Award" at our gatherings. (But I can't remember what the award was for!)

    I do remember an epic gathering dinner with him at the White Wolf in Useless Eustis that involved much hilarity and that apron!

    RIP Tom,

    As I recall the leather apron was presented to the person that travelled the furthest to attend each gathering. The leather apron itself was inspired by the staff at the White Wolf.
    I agree with Ranxerox !!!!
