I was very sorry to hear of Tom Donnelly’s death last Monday. I have missed my conversations with Tom since I last talked with him last June. Tom Donnelly was an urbane gentleman, accomplished lawyer, wise counselor, and careful financial steward. He often took the long view of organizational development and demanded frank analysis. His 20 years of service as an AUL board member are a testament to his diligent oversight and prudence. In the 20 years I have known Tom, our conversations were highlighted by his insightful observations, infectious laugh, and expressions of love and pride for his family. One of my colleagues who also knew Tom these 20 years remarked, “What a great man he was!” He leaves a broad, deep, and rich legacy. His wise counsel and encouragement will be deeply missed. Our prayers are with Marilyn and his family.Posted in categories: Blog.
