  • Remembering Tinker Dorn

    Posted on 4/24/17 - by Richard Maizel rwmaizel@yahoo.com
    I was in Washington DC from April 20-23, 2017, for The March for Science with my wife, Sue, daughter, Lexie, and grandson Rio. On Sunday, we stopped at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial so I could find Tinker's name on the wall. I remember playing baseball with Tinker during my years of playing high school baseball. He was a big, fun loving guy who played ball well and enjoyed life. I remember the shock and sadness of learning of his death. And now, 51 years later, still remembering Tinker; gone but not forgotten.

    Philip was a hero to all of the students at Shrewsbury Grammer School. He came to the school before deploying to visit. We all loved "Tinker" and wished him well. I remember sitting in class one day and hearing another teacher, Miss Marie Hamm, come running down the hall yelling between cries, 'they've killed Tinker'. The entire school fell into mourning. our hometown hero was gone. But Phil, I promise you, you will never be forgotten.

  • How I Remember Tinker

    I had only been in the Army 6 months when I had learned from my mother about Tinker's death. She did not know Tinker but I used to mention the names of various guys that I played baseball with. One day I had called her and she asked me if I "knew" Tinker. I said, "yes ,we played ball together."
    Since we lived in New Shrewsbury she read, The Red Bank Register.
    I remember Tinker as a fun loving guy who never had a bad word to say about ANYONE. I remember him as easygoing and laid back.
    Tinker did the DORN name proud,he was a class act
