Dear Pauline, Buzzy and Family,

I am so saddened to hear about Mr. Tuohy’s passing. He touched my life in many ways.
I looked forward to each day during the time that I served as secretary with the company. I enjoyed making thermocouples, bringing lunch for all to enjoy, and most of all, I will remember Mr. Tuohy greeting me everyday with “How ya doing doll?” Mr. Tuohy was a gentleman in every sense of the word; kind, caring, wise, sincere, and humorous. He often spoke lovingly of his wife Pauline and of his children. I admired Mr. Touhy for his zest for life. May he rest in peace. K
