Friends of the Cruiser Olympia would like to acknowledge the generous donation they have received from Linearizer Technology, Inc., (LTI) Hamilton, N.J., in memory of Mr. Thomas J. Kirk. Mr. Kirk passed away on Oct. 18, 2010.
A Navy veteran who was possessed of continuous interest in; and extensive, ever-increasing knowledge of; maritime history, Mr. Kirk was a tremendous proponent of the Olympia and her restoration. His fascination with the storied ship inspired his friends and colleagues at Linearizer Technology to honor his memory with a $500 donation toward the future of the Cruiser Olympia alongside Philadelphia’s river docks.
President Captain Jay Richman as well as the entire team at the Friends, are proud to honor Mr. Kirk and his hopes for the future of OLYMPIA.
