It’s with a heavy heart that the tech association announces the passing of Tom O’Connell.
Tom was the Department of Public Health liaison for DFS for many years, and became a contractor for the hazmat office in his retirement. He also became a friend and advisor to many of us. Tom’s commitment to the teams was unwavering. His development of our radiation, and sampling programs, as well as too many others to mention, brought a level of capability and professionalism to our teams that is unmatched anywhere in the country. Tom’s contributions will be long lasting, and he will be sorely missed. Please keep his family in your thoughts and consider donating to his go fund me, as the help will still be needed.
