  • Tom you're not forgotten

    Posted on 5/1/05 - by RD Ahurst
    Tom was so good at everything he did. One thing he could play baseball; The summer of 69' Tommy played catcher on a ragtag baseball team made up of air force broadcasters at Sheppard AFB TX. We even proudly made it to the base tournament. Being married, Tom and his wife often held cookouts and parties at their apt which gave us young single newbies a place to go off the yard.
    I still miss Tom, and wish to pass on a salute to his parents and other family members. He was a truly fine and good man.

    Tom: I still remember you all these years later. I remember the shock of being told you guys were killed by one of our own battle-damaged day after I got transferred to another base. I felt somewhat guilty..we were a rather tight bunch of guys over there..wondering what a bunch of broadcasters were doing at an air base out in the middle of nowhere. But I benefitted from knowing you..a real southern gentleman with morals and a sense of humor that helped us keep going and set an example. Bless you where ever you are and I won't forget.

    I never saw Tommy in a bad mood nor use foul language nor hang out at the smoking block; he was focused on success, and I'll always admire him. I lost track of him until I began working at Channel 10 in 1970, and I heard of Tommy's passing from Ann Compton at Channel 7. I pray and am sure his family has many more happy memories of him than I do; I mainly remember when we'd play football or baseball in Fishburn Park. I'm honored to have known you, Tommy. Be with God.

    I remember Tom Waterman as a great guy. He was always smiling and always friendly. I also remember he smoked a pipe...a purple pipe. May his memory last forever and I offer a prayer for his family. , Bruce Dortin, Atlanta, Ga.
