Tom Salisbury '61

April 2024

Fortunately, his mind and sense of humor persisted until the end. Special recognition goes to his wife of 57 years, Bunny, two children (Annie and Katie), and the in-home caregivers, who cared for him during his last months when daily care and support were required.

On a happier note, my granddaughter, Phoebe, enthusiastically began her first year at UC-Berkeley, and my grandson, Camden, is a high school freshman in Sacramento.
