Thomas Anthony Smith d. 16 Dec 2003. Thomas was driving to work on the Los Angeles Freeway and apparently had a heart attack, managed to pull his car to the side of the road and died. a tow truck operator found him a little while later. I am looking for an obit or newspaper article about this incident. Thomas was my uncle--I remember us playing together as kids. I was fortunate and got to visit him a year before he passed away. Any help greatly appreciated.
