I was sad to learn of the passing of Tom Lasley a few weeks ago. Tom, along with Mike Nealy of Thunder Media, presented a plan to G.I. Joe’s for a ticket outlet system in late 1978. G.I. Joe’s went for the idea and picked me to manage the Box Office, working with Tom, who took care of the ticket-side of the business.
We had Box Offices in the five Portland area stores and the system made tickets easily accessible to folks in those days before computerized tickets.
It was great working with Tom Lasley. He was a fine human being and I know will be missed by many.
