Reply to "OBIT: Tom Tjaarda 1934-2017"

Tom's last stateside visit was Monterey Week in 2016. PCNC arranged to chaufeur Tom during that week.

I had the honor and privilege to provide his ride to Pebble Beach on Sunday. This photo is Tom at Pebble Beach on a bench in front of the Lodge, about 6:30 am before the Judges Breakfast, August 21, 2016.

The first photo I posted was taken later that day, just before Tom, my friend Gary and I enjoyed a fish-n-chips dinner at the Monterey harbor. Tom said he enjoyed good fish-n-chips, and luckily the small restaurant we chose delivered precisely that.

After dinner, I took him to his Seaside motel, walked him up the stairs to his second story room, and saw him safely into his room.

As I drove away, I wondered if I would be lucky enough to see him again......
