My name is Richard Lenahan (Coach) and I did not know Tom senior but I did have the pleasure of knowing his son, Tom, as I hired him at my plant. If Tom Jr was anything like his Dad, I wish I would have met him. If he was a chip off the old block, he would have been a hard - responsible worker, great sense of humor, loved his family and loved his Subaru's.. I read Tom senior was a Korean war vet like my Dad. Of note, my wife is buried at the same location. I will mention to her tonight to meet Tom senior and show him around. She (Sally Lenahan) is up the right road on the right side about 200 yards on the right. I am sure she will be glad to meet him. Stay blessed.
