Thom Stickel (A little elbow grease) passed away yesterday
me ^ | 8/6/20 | me

Posted on 08/06/2020 10:19:24 AM PDT by JonPreston

I've just been notified by his wife that Thom Stickel (A little elbow grease) passed away yesterday. Thom was a proud alumni of the University of Pittsburgh, where he played baseball on scholarship. Our mutual love of baseball shaped our friendship and our similar ages allowed for great memories dating back to the late 50s and 60s. He never let me forget about the greatest homerun ever hit by Bill Mazeroski against the Yankees in 1960 :) I'll miss Thom and our offline exchanges badly and I know many others will miss him too.

God bless you Thom, your presence helped to make America great.
