That’s Dr. Tom Topper ’70 at last year’s alumni dinner in Evansville, IN. Tom passed away this past Sunday after a courageous battle with cancer. Our hearts go out to his wife Gina and his entire family.

Tom served the college in many ways – as a regional association leader, alumni board member, and ultimately as the president of the board of directors of the National Association of Wabash Men. Despite a busy medical practice, he always had time for our students, alumni and the college in general.

Just a year ago I chatted with Tom about Wabash. He credits the college with offering him a place to explore – medicine, music, and many other interests.

We’ll miss you TTOP. Save us a place up there.
