Tom Mallan, a U.S. Navy Vietnam veteran, the ED of the Church of Scientology of San Diego from 1974 to 1978, and a Scientologist from 1972 to blowing in 1983, passed away on November 26, 2016. Despite the fact that it was Tom who sent me to the Excalibur’s RPF in 1974, we were good friends. The news of his terminal condition shook me to my very core, another fellow staff member leaving this existence. When I was in Scientology there were many good upstanding people in it and I count Tom as one of them. I have created a memorial page for him; may you know him as I did - http://scientolipedia.org/info/Tom_Mallan RIP my friend Howard Dickman Former staff member of the San Diego Org, 1973 to 1977.
