I am sad to tell you that Tom's cancer has taken him. He will be missed.

I enjoyed his posts and a few discussions with him. A nice guy and a lot of knowledge lost.

Tom was very private about his sickness, and wasn't one for sympathy. He shared a lot with me over the years but I did what he wanted and never shared his troubles. He was meticulous in his work, whether as a Union Carpenter or as a Harley-Davidson enthusiast. I never got to meet him in person, only through our phone conversations and online banter. At times we butted heads as many do, but Tom always continued and loved to learn about the old stuff. He knew his time was short but never let it stop him from going forward on his beloved '52 Panhead restoration project. He can ride it now for eternity..RIP Tom "Bigincher" Johnson!!

This is very sad. I liked Tom a lot although I never met him. We knew each other only through the forums and sometimes we’d exchange PMs and emails which were usually related to Harley ID of one form or another. I enjoyed his 52 Panhead thread and I admired Tom for his attention to detail.

Bummer.
I haven't been following the Forum that long, but Big Incher always seemed knowledgeable and courteous, and definitely a respected contributor-- he'll be missed, I'm sure.
GodSpeed,
