Larry German (Excels) (1958)


I met Tom Pence, while in the seventh grade.  He was cool, smart and one year

my senior.  Hence, I took a few social lessons from him, but was never as smart

or as cool.  He had a chipped front tooth and a sly smile.


As a South Ogden kid, he worked the OCC as a caddy and became a proficient golfer. 

As I recall, he played Varsity for Weber High.


Tom was one of the big reasons I joined Excels ... even though he left, as a Sophmore,

to be part of the University of Utah NROTC program.  As said, he was smart.


Years past, as he pursued a career in the Navy, andour paths didn't cross.  I have often wondered about his early passing.  If someone could put me in touch with one of his family members, it would be appreciated.
