Big Tom Tincher passed away on easter morning.  He was a part of West Park playing that course every day.  It was like pulling teeth when I got him to come play Trinity one time and one time only.  he will be missed by many

Tom will definitely be missed especially at West Park. He loved that place! Tom was a great down to earth kind of guy.
He didnít have much interest in playing in the league but I remember one time he just came up to us and handed us $20 and said to put it towards our league. He was well liked throughout the J-Town disc golf community.

I didn't have a lot of depth with Tom, but Trudy, what a dog. I guess I have to thank Tom for that.
