We have received the very sad news that our long-time member, former President, gregarious Conclave planner and bus captain and dedicated HQ volunteer Dr. Thomas DuBuque, DDS, was killed yesterday in a car crash in South Africa. Apparently he was driving in the mountains, it was snowing and a car skidded into his. Tom was a world traveler who increased his trips after retiring from his dental practice about 2 years ago. This was his second visit to South Africa. He was born, raised, practiced dentistry and still lived in the family home in Wauwatosa, WI, a suburb of Milwaukee. He was also house manager for the Pabst Theatre, Milwaukee, where a memorial service will be held at a date to be set.
The THS family is devastated by this news. How sad that we will no longer hear his booming voice, see the twinkle in his eye and the big smile on his face, and enjoy the company of a warm, generous, caring and loving man. (RS)
R.I.P., Tom !
