Tom died in an oilfield accident the summer of either 1964 or 1965.  He was in the Marine Corps PLC program in college.

I was so sad when I had learned about Tommy's death back in 1964!  It really hit me hard.  He was always just a dear friend for me, and if I was unhappy about something (a broken heart for example)...Tommy would pick me up and take me out just to have a happy time.  What a dear boy he was...and so sorry he did not get to grow old with the rest of us.  Rest in Peace, Coyote Tom!

Tom Parsons, Tom Mangham, and I put a “Bongo Rock” group together for Sensations 1961.  Tom Parsons played electric guitar, Mangum on congo drum, and moi on the bongos.  Tom Parsons had a great personality.  His wide smile was infectious.  Tom and I were invited to play at a few parties that summer.  Parsons was a good friend, mentor, and confidant.  Tom signed my Senior year book: ‘Lucky Tom Parsons’.  Rest in peace my Friend.
