While not as prestigious as Richard Sachs a prolific builder none the less.

Very sad. I couldn't tell from the article whether he had an accident or not. I know it said he died of a heart attack later at the hospital, but I think that can happen as a result of trauma. Not that it particularly matters...I guess it's just human nature to make sense of things, even when there is no sense to be made.

Google told me:

"The man died due to a medical condition and not from a traumatic injury, though Libby said he did not know the exact cause of death."

Other sources said it was a heart attack...certainly sad news...

I grew up in Iowa City and used to ride by his original frame shop location with my dad. As a kid I loved seeing Tom working on frames. He was always very nice to us. Very sad news indeed.
