Tom was a very bright young man. Many of his classmates were convinced he would become a successful MD.

Tom was a very smart guy, and a very hard worker. We took many classes together, but he always seemed to outperform me (except in chemisty, which I loved). Too bad he died so young.

Can anyone enlighten me on the details of Tom's passing ?  I lost touch with many of my classmates after graduation and Tom Feiertag was one of many I have good memories of.  Learning of his death came as an unhappy surprise.  Thank you, if you can share anything.  Lloyd.

One Sunday in the mid 70's, Tom Feirrtag and Bill McLeod walked into a bar I was managing on Castro Street in San Franciscco, having heard that was the day I worked behind the bar. We spent the aftedrnoon catching up on what had happened since high school. I saw each of them several times after that. In 1985 each informed me they had contacted what would beccome know aas AIDS. Bill passed in 1986 and Tom not long after in 1987. Both were surounded by family and friends.

Tom and I met and became friends in 7th grade at West Miami. He and I were chosen to work independently in the SMSG ( some math, some garbage) advanced math class; we aced it, but it was years later before I understood conceptually what what we were graphing and doing in equations, so maybe the lecture had some value.  Tom was one of a number of classmates (David Best, Beckie Parker, Donna Chamberlain, Gil Mozard, etc.) who eventually cured me of my self-delusion of being the smartest kid in the class. The world's loss that he died so young.
