Senior Moderator / RC-RT Committee
Staff member
Dec 17, 2011

TS and JJD came up thru the ranks as RC's, to become Moderators, we had our talks, off and on XDA. Sometimes we agreed, sometimes we did not, but when it was said and done, both of us had each others backs. He looked after and helped so many RC's/RT's via XDA, always there to help them, correcting them when need be... A family man, his love for his family, was the same for XDA, gonna miss you Sir.

Tom and I came to know each other about 5 years ago and both came into the Moderator pool around the same time, and he totally embraced it wholeheartedly. He was a great person both in the forums and outside of them. To his family and close friends: I am truly sorry for your loss.

    In memory of our fallen comrade TonyStark who gave up so much for the benefit of XDA, the community and his teammates!
    On March 20th, 2016 we lost a great contributor and moderator to this great site! He was a comrade, teammate, and friend!
    He succumbed to respiratory failure after a long time battling this off and on.
    R.I.P. buddy! You will be missed and remembered!

    For those wishing to help the family they have requested all donations go towards his children's college fund

    For those of you that are unable to send funds to that address, please send a PayPal money transfer as "friends and family" to the following gmail address: [email protected]

    Thanks @Neo for getting this set up!

    I've been thinking about posting here for a while but did not have the courage to do so.

    I'd just like to say that he was someone that we as Mods looked at with high regards as he always showed a very proactive attitude whilst helping others. I for one will miss him but know very well that he is not suffering anymore and he is not in pain anymore. I hope to see him one day in the future walking, having fun and enjoying life with his family based on this beautiful scripture of John 5:21, 28:
    21 "For just as the Father raises the dead up and makes them alive, so the Son also makes alive whomever he wants to"
    28 "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice"
    We didn't lose a friend...we gained a lot by him sharing his knowledge, great experiences and learned that we have to always endured and fight with all our might in the face of adversity.

    See you later Tom, see you later...
    Mind if I hijack this thread and ask about his family? Send all the best wishes from me too. R.I.P.

    XDA has sent some things to the family as well as many comments and condolences from moderators. We will be giving them the link to this thread so they can view all the comments and condolences.
    Also a donation link is being set up and will be posted soon to help with his childrens' college funds.Watch the thread and the OP for that.
    Just donated $500 from myself and Alex from DU. This is awful and I hope this will help his family.
