Thomas James Piagari 1965 - 2019 I'm sorry to report on the passing of one of my closest friends, master modeler Tom Piagari. I received this email from the president of the Lake Michigan Model Car Club today: "To All, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but as Newsletter Editor of the Lake Michigan Model Car Club, sometimes that is my responsibility. It is with shock and sadness we must report the passing of Tom Piagari. Tom didn't just build plastic kits; he was a professional Modelmaker/Rapid Prototyping for Paradigm Development Group. One of our finest modelers, Tom joined the LMMCC in 1987 and had been our Contest Director since 2003. All of you in the AMG Milwaukee are sure to remember Tom as one of your NNL award winners. His work appeared in almost every national hobby magazine. To say that he will be missed is a gross understatement. We will have a biography and more information in a future issue of our newsletter, but for now, here are the current details: https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/name/thomas-piagari-obituary?pid=193710895 Thomas Piagari age 54 of Prospect Heights, IL passed away August 20, 2019. Loving husband of Leslie. Memorial gathering Sunday, August 25, 2019 beginning at 3:00PM to 7:00PM G.L. Hills Funeral Home, 745 Graceland Avenue, Des Plaines, Illinois, 60016. For details please call (847) 699-9003 firstname.lastname@example.org Take care and God bless all of you, James E. Zientara Dory Zientara" I last saw Tom Saturday evening when we went together to the LMMCC meeting; he brought along his newly-completed '72 Rally Nova. It was a little jewel like all his builds were. He was a great help and inspiration to me as a modeler; we had many good times together in the six years I knew him. I loved him and will miss him very much. P.S. He was on the forum under the name feretzrus; he wasn't big into forums like me but you can see some of his fine builds posted under that name. http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/profile/18167-feretzrus/
