In memory of Thomas V. Silvia, 1950 - 2007.
Our deepest sympathy goes out to our friend Brita Brooks who lost her boyfriend Tom last Friday. Tom was a member of the State Bar of Michigan with a passion and dedication to the arts and the rights of artists, Perhaps his greatest passion was Indian Law and he was one of the first hundred or so members of AIM, The American Indian Movement.
Brita recalled that her beau Tom, in 1972 when he stopped here in the process of carrying a peace pipe from Key West to Maine, and California to Rhode Island,slept on the roof of the Green Parrot.
Tom is pictured above with Brita at a Tigers game last year.
A memorial site created by his daughter Grace appears at http://tvsilvia.muchloved.com/app/?
