Tomich is gone - Paint It Black
Living the American dream one heartbreaking piece at a time
Tomich is gone
John Tomich passed away today.

John was a coworker and friend at $EMPLOYER who helped keep me and the other members of our clique in good spirits. John was an inspiration to practice my photography and hone my skills. John had outstanding technical knowledge that made him an asset to the organization, but his "people skills" were what set him apart. John's musical ability gave us "Raining Meat," which was the title he gave his one-person band as he wrote, performed and recorded songs for us to use for laughter and stress relief.

The last time I wrote about John was this entry of April 2007.

After that we sort of lost touch. We'd email occasionally, or post to one another on Facebook, but that was about it. Lots of talk about getting the old crew back together to hang out never moved beyond talk. Now the opportunity is lost forever.

I don't know the details of what happened, or how he got so sick and passed so quickly. There's so much information missing. Maybe I'll find out more. I don't know if it matters.

The obituary has been posted.

I am so sorry about your friend John. That is terribly fast.. Details obviously won't bring him back, but it may settle the mind about how things happened. More the how than the WHY. *hugs* Thoughts and prayers to friends and family. He sounds like a wonderful guy.

I have more detail about how it happened. Let me know if you'd like to know, though I'd rather not post it here.
