Tom Peloquin – Dean’s Storage

My greatest pal of over 40 years, Tom Peloquin, went dwelling to be with the Lord at the moment. He was 64 years outdated. 

We met in Buick Exterior Studio in 1980, and we labored collectively there till I used to be transferred to Olds One in 1986. Tom was a significant contributor to the Dean’s Storage e-book.

The final time I used to be with him was in Could, 2019, throughout a go to to Michigan that included a go to to the GM Heritage Heart. We corresponded steadily by means of emails and cellphone calls. We mentioned automotive design, present occasions, religion, and household considerations. 

Tom was quick-witted, and had an actual expertise for recalling tales of the completely different characters (and their exploits) we met at GM Design that included gestures and vocals. He was a really proficient designer, and particularly appreciated the styling of the early 2nd Era Firebirds. He had a 1974 Method that he by no means had the time and assets to revive, however I perceive his sons intend to complete it.

Tom was a devoted man to his household and his beliefs. 

He was like a brother. A once-in-a-lifetime pal.

I’ll miss him terribly.
