I had not seen Tommy (Brownie) since high school. He was the first to welcome me to the school, my neighbor a quarter mile down the country road, a really awesome athlete and a close friend to many. The 1967 graduating class (Dexter NM) held our 50th reunion this weekend and held a memorial for Tommy. RIP

We learned of Tommy's passing just before our 50th high school reunion. We had a memorial for all our classmates that had passed, including Tommy. We all missed having him there and several got up and spoke of him and some of the good times they had. We are sorry for your loss.
