Farewell Thomas Dewey Shockley, Jr - 1260th Engineer

A little late and I apologize for that (seem to be doing a lot of that lately). My condolences to Tom and his family.




I regret to report that Thomas Dewey Shockley, Jr, a proud member of the 1260th Combat Engineer Battalion during WW II, passed away May 28, 2015. Following the war, Tom obtained a PhD in Electrical Engineering, married and raised two wonderful daughters. He was a lifelong educator and Chairman of Electrical Engineering at the University of Memphis. He established and funded four endowment scholarships at LSU which will continue providing education to needy students for years to come. He was 91.

I'm confident Tom is enjoying the 1260th reunion in God's pavilion.
