Mc Duffie, Thomas F. (KM6K)

July 13, 2009

In the 16 years that I've been a customer at HRO, I don't think Tom and I had any chat that lasted longer than 3 minutes! As a SWL back then, I always found it gratifying to have someone like Tom behind the counter. Later when I became a ham, I learned that Tom was also in the friendship business. Whether I was looking for an antenna, a rig, a book, some feedline or just a connector, Tom was there to serve and to help the beginning ham. Someone once wrote that the making and keeping of friends is the best token we have of a man's true success in life. Tom was a very successful person in life, as well as business. I will always remember the kindnesses shown me through those years. I will truly miss him. May we all extend a special blessing to Tom and his bereft family. Alan M. Vigeant...KI6HPO

I was a manager of one of the HRO stores. Tom was very helpful to me when I was first starting out as a store manager. He was a true gentleman and will be sorely missed. His call is incorrectly listed here, it should be KM6K, not KM6J. Rest in peace Tom.

I only dealt with Tom twice but each time was a pleasure. He was a good guy. RIP. Frank
