Tom Kulwicki RIP

I just found out this morning that Tom Kulwicki of Alessi Holsters has passed away. It happened a month ago (Feb 21) and I searched the forum to see if there was a mention anywhere, but couldn't find one.

Anyway, for those who knew him, but didn't know.

RIP Tom

I'm sorry to hear this.

I didn't know him, but he seemed like a good guy that stepped in to keep the Alessi name in the holster business going after Mr. Alessi passed away. I wish his and the Alessi family the best, and I'm sorry for their loss.

Oh no, it's sad to hear. I've met Tom a couple of times at SHOT, he was always nice and professional. May he rest in peace.

I actually heard this last month but since I hadn't seen it around most places I didn't bring it up since I didn't know Tom very well I met him at shot and spoke on the phone several times. Good guy was sorry to hear, and in strange things he passed away on the same day of the year Lou did but 9 years later.

OMG, that is a weird coincidence.

Sad to hear this. I met Tom a number of times. When I wanted my 1st holster about 6 years ago, I drove over to their shop (about a 90 minute drive for me) to see them. He talked to me for over an hour then fitted me for a holster and a belt (which I wear every day, all day). Very nice guy.

He had just bought (in the last year or so) the Buffalo Gun range (indoor) and was (or did) move the holster business to the site of the gun range.

He will be missed by all of us who knew him.

I am very sorry to hear this. Tom was a really nice guy. Seems we are all getting to the age where life starts to take more than it gives. RIP Tom.
