Default Corvette Steering Services... RIP Tom Reina...

My good friend and long time vendor Tom, did not return my phone call last week. Today when I called I was saddened to find out of his passing.

Many of you may remember Tom... just a caring individual who would always spend time going the extra mile to help someone. He was just as good of a person as you would ever find and he will be missed dearly.

RIP my friend..

Ernie.

That is very sad to hear, Tom was a pleasure to talk to and it was always educational speaking with him. A real gentleman and it was actually fun doing business with him. His products and services were superb.

He will be missed, my condolences to his family and all that knew him.

That is sad news. We first met him years ago when the Regional was still being held at Cypress Gardens. A very nice fella, and always helpful.

RIP

Sad to hear am Tom's passing. I talked with Tom a couple of years ago about my rag joint and he restored it like new. Very kind and helpful.

Sorry to hear that. Tom was a good guy to deal with. He helped me with some early steering boxes many years ago before all the replacement gears became available and was a very knowledgeable and personable guy. Pilot Dan

It is always so very sad when we find, yet another, member of the community has passed.
I've never had the pleasure of meeting him, but from what I am reading, he sounded like a person of integrity and character.
I am sorry for his loss and prayers to his family and friends.
