THOMAS FEKETE (1988 - 2016)
Thank you Thom for playing music with me for six amazing years. I'll always remember our time together as some of the most exciting moments of my life. I don't know where or who I would be without you, and I know I'll probably never meet anyone like you again. You burnt so bright while you were with us, and I know your memory will continue to inspire anyone who was lucky enough to know you. - JP
Thom...what a beautiful and talented being. I was so fortunate to have spent the greatest part of my life with him. My brother will truly be missed. Love you man and thanks for opening up my mind. The memories will last a lifetime, but the music will play on forever. - Tyler
Thomas, you are not only one of my best friends but you are my role model as well. You are a truly celestial being and your presence has been a gift to this world. I will forever blast your songs and will always treasure all our memories together. I will be sharing your humor and wisdom with everyone I meet for the rest of my life. I love you brother. - Kevin
RIP to my Brother Thomas Fekete. You brought out the best in everyone. So honored to be the person that tries to fill your shoes. Thank you for your reassurance. I felt at times I didn't deserve such a task but you believed in me. It isn't going to be easy but I'm going to do my best in every aspect in your honor. Thank you for always believing in me and inspiring me. Your spirit lives on through everyone's hearts that you've touched. You are an angel. Love you my dude ♥️ till we meet again - Mikey
Sweet Thomas, lil shredder with the biggest heart...you are a force to be reckoned with. You fought hard and with undying optimism. I am so grateful you've left this world with your gorgeous musical legacy so that we never really have to say goodbye. Your songs speak to people and help us to remember our humanity. I will be jamming Burner to the end of my days. - Linds

Thomas Fekete, Surfer Blood guitarist for 6 years, has been sidelined while undergoing treatment for a very rare and aggressive cancer (a sarcoma). Although Thom has health insurance, which has covered more than six months of chemotherapy, his experienced team of doctors are confident in an alternative treatment plan, that unfortunately is not covered by insurance. As he’s no longer able to tour and make a living, we hope and appreciate if you can help with a donation of any size, and help spread the word by sharing on social media. Thank you so much for the love and support!
