Farewell to AVSIM's Tom Allensworth - In Memoriam


Recommended Posts

Tom Allensworth departed on his angel flight at 0530 this morning.


This was not totally unexpected, although much sooner than anyone had suspected.

High Flight

"Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth

And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;

Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth

of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things

You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung

High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,

I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung

My eager craft through footless halls of air....

Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue

I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace.

Where never lark, or even eagle flew —

And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space,

- Put out my hand, and touched the face of God."



Goodbye Tom. You'll be sadly missed, and, well remembered...

I do hope when my time comes that it doesn't drag out over months and months. While it's a shock to hear the news of Tom's passing I'm very glad he didn't spend a lot of time in agony dying a slow and painful death. RIP Tom, the FS world will never be the same without you around.

While I didn't know Mr. Allensworth nor did I spend any time at Avsim I can certainly appreciate his love of aviation. Any person that devoted as much time,energy and dedication to our beloved hobby is going to be missed in the community. RIP Mr. Allensworth and sincere condolences to his family.
