I would just like to say I was very sad to hear of Tomo's passing. I remember him playing basketball and always having so much positive energy. Tomo was someone who was truly unforgettable. He will be missed greatly.

Geez, I think it's okay to READ on a forum about an 18 year old dying and wonder what happened. It's not exactly common. If the family wanted complete privacy the article should not have been written in the paper and / or posted online in the first place!

I'm sorry to hear of Tomo's passing. I remember him as being somewhat shy around adults, but always had a group of friends around him. You could see he loved playing basketball and was always around the Harvest Park Gym. Unfortunately he never got the chance to develop his talents at the High School level and I know that was a disappointment for him. As a CYO coach I always tried to reach out to him and encourage him to work on his game. He was always respectful and willing to listen. I wished I could of done more. What a tragedy to see a life lost at such a young age. May the Lord's comfort and blessings be on him and his family.

Hey Tomo, I'm still thinking about the times we trained together and how you were always so positive that I would go "D1" and play football somewhere. Thanks for believing in me, man. You were right, I'm going to go "D1", but in things other than football. I'm praying for you and your family.
