It has just been brought to the attention of Zeta Psi Penn that our brother Thomas Vietor '66 passed away nearly three years ago, on October 1, 2010.

Tom's freshman roommate James Riley '67 graciously wrote in to inform us of his dear friend's passing.

James recalls that it was Tom that convinced him to join Zeta Psi in the first place. He, and the other brothers that knew Tom, remember him fondly.

Below, you can find Tom's obituary from the New York Times:
