A Fluid Air announcement described Tappen’s role in the industry: “Anyone who had the privilege to be around Tom-all of his customers, employees, business associates, friends-because part of his family. His wealth of knowledge and infinite patience left him in high esteem as a true diplomat and gentleman. His strong and gracious presence will surely be missed.”
