Kasmer, Thomas E.
Local resident and famed inventor of the Hydristor,
passed away on October 27, 2011 from a sudden
attack. A steadfast and dedicated supporter of green
energy for the future, Tom obtained several
Patents for the "Hydristor". His lifelong dream was
to provide a more efficient powertrain for cars.
He is survived
by his son Chris and his daughter Kim, as well as his
grandchildren Camille and Gibson,
ages 10 and 8, who
all reside in Florida. No public services were held.
According to the obituary published in the Press & Sun-Bulletin (Binghamton, NY) from February 23
through February 25, 2012, all estate matters were
to be directed to the executrix,
c/o John W. Young, Young & Young,
22 Riverside Drive,
Binghamton, NY 13905.
On April 2, 2012 a letter was sent to the executrix at the above law firm, asking how they wanted to
proceed with this web site. Since no response was received by December, a call was placed to the law
firm inquiring as to the status.
We were informed that the executrix no longer retained that firm as the
estate's legal representative. The law firm had no information as to who, if anyone, was now handling
the estate or the Hydristor. The firm also would not provide any contact information
for the executrix, other than to say that she was still residing in the Binghamton area.
We have been unable to find any contact information for the executrix. For that reason, the Hydristor
web site has been shut down, effective December 31, 2012.
