Late this afternoon Tommy Hafey lost his short battle with a second brain tumor and has died at 83. It is a shock to all as everyone believed this man would live forever given his healthy life style, positive outlook and his incredable fitness regime. His catch cry when anyone asked how he was, was, "Fantastic And Getting Better".
When I posted an earlier blog just over a week ago after Tommy was readmitted to hospital, I said that I do not personally know, nor have I ever met him but some how I feel I know him, or at least want to know him. He was a good man, an inspiration to all, a true leader, kind, giving to a fault, gracious, disciplined, tough, hard when required and universally respected. Women loved him and men wanted to be him.
I won't regurgitate my earlier blog but his fitness regime and discipline were legendary and the corner stones of the incredible life that he lived and the world's not quite ready to not have him around.
R.I.P. Tee Shirt Tommy Hafey you will be sorely missed.
