Post by: BPotts on Apr 29, 2014, 12:50
Tommy LeMacks passed away April 23, 2014 at 7:00 AM in Charleston, SC.  Tommy's last outage was in 1989 at Hatch.

Tommy was a fantastic technician and a great friend.   Tom worked at many plants throughout the country. Tom struggled with heart problems and underwent numerous procedures - bypasses, valve replacements and stents.  He passed away suddenly of heart failure.   BPotts

I had the pleasure of working with Tom several outages at DC Cook during the ARC reign in the late 80's. He was a true gentleman with a great sense of humor and a great perspective. I still remember one of his logsheet entries which stated " its was a mighty long way to the upper ice condenser toting that lo-vol". He truly was a fine man. RIP Tom.    MM2/ELT USS NIMITZ 80-84.

I worked with Tommy back in the 80's,one of the nicest you could ever know. He was usually the guy getting everyone together for a group photo.

Crossed paths with Tom at D. Arnold, Palisades, and later Cook.   Always a soft voice and kind word, much like his father.   Another of Tom's survey comments: " The heat exchanger is a dark and eerie place."    Peace and comfort to those who knew him best and called him friend.

I only got to work with Tom once in the early eighties out at Duane Arnold. He was one of those  people l had hoped to see again, l feel we are all lessened by his passing for he was a fine example of just what a gentleman should be. -Chuck Auth
