Tom Fry, a longtime staple in the Flintridge Prep community as a coach and teacher, who was revered by colleagues and his family, lost a seven-month battle with a malignant brain tumor Wednesday night. He was 52. Fry, a 1975 Crescenta Valley High and 1979 Occidental College graduate, died at his brother’s home in La Cañada Flintridge. He had taught history and served as an assistant football coach after joining Flintridge Prep in 1990. Fry, who was active in numerous sporting and academic events at Flintridge Prep, was diagnosed with a tumor in late March before undergoing surgery in early April at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena, Rick Fry, one of Tom’s two older brothers, said.

Until Monday the worst thing facing me this week was a root canal. And then my sister Tris, my personal idol, died. There is nothing I can write that would do justice to her, but she is at the top of my mind and I can't seem to wrestle with any other subject today. It feels self-indulgent, but I hope you'll understand. It was cancer that did Tris in. As best I can understand it, the disease started in her thyroid and made its silent march, invading the rest of her body before her doctors realized what was going on. Last spring, as soon as she was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor, my sister and her husband Frank traveled from their home in Clovis to UCLA, where she met with a highly-regarded surgeon who was upbeat about her prognosis.

This particular business trip in December 2006 was to be my last of that year, but as it turned out, it could very well have been my last for a very long time. I had traveled the world as a commercial airplane marketing and sales director for cabin interior equipment for over 20 uneventful travel years. I was in Paris on this trip and had met with my airline customers, closing a very important company deal and handing out small Christmas gifts. I got back to my hotel that Friday afternoon exhausted.

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.” — Eleanor Roosevelt   Many La Cañada and Crescenta Valley residents have looked into the face of cancer and have fought it. Some have survived, some have lost the battle, but all have inspired those around them. Almost everyone who participated in the 24-hour Relay for Life fundraiser last weekend had a story about surviving cancer themselves or having a friend, neighbor or loved one who had been diagnosed with the disease.

Music and the support of family and friends has played a big part in making 17-year-old Dylan Crane who he is today — a graduating La Cañada High School senior, heading off this fall with scholarships to study music at Hiram College in Ohio. But, it hasn’t been all simple scales and schoolwork for this week’s Valley Sun All-Star. Crane — a cancer survivor — has dealt with more physical stumbling blocks than many youths his age, but has emerged triumphant and is ready to take on the challenges of life.
