Tom Ulrich

At our last general meeting, our president Kay Mitchell led us in a moment of silence for a dear friend to Flathead Audubon, Tom Ulrich. Tom died of a very aggressive form of leukemia on Friday, February 10th at the Siteman Cancer Center in St. Louis, Missouri. The love of his life, Linda Martin, was by his side. Linda can be reached via Facebook or email ( ) or USPS (511 E Board Street, Elkville IL 62932).

His friend and fellow photographer, Bert Gildart, states on his recent blog: “Tom was a nationally renowned  photographer, profoundly individualistic man, and genuinely good person. His demise has created a void for his many friends.” We share those sentiments. Thank you, Tom, for the wonders of this planet (from the smallest hummer to opera singing hippos) you have shared with our community.

According to Linda Martin’s facebook page a memorial service for Thomas Joseph Ulrich is being planned in Montana for late spring or early summer.
