Tom Hurd was one of my two tutors in Physics at the U.  Tom was hysterically funny so studying for Physics was a pure joy!  I chuckle when I see his cute grin in his high school picture.  It just warms my heart.  I think he came to class in his "Golden Nugget" and sat on the back row with us where the Physics lecture just sunk into his bright mind.  I, on the other hand, was trying to take every note I could.  He was such a dear person.
