Tom also served in the Army where he was in the 101st Airborne Division and awarded a Purple Heart while serving in the Vietnam War. Tom is a native of Buffalo, New York and attended Canisius College and graduated from The University of Buffalo. He loved everything “Buffalo”… especially the Bills.

He leaves behind his wife of 48 years, Diane, and the best children anyone could ask for – Jeff (Adrianna) Duggan, Tara (Dave Spaulding), Peter (Jolene) Duggan. He also leaves his favorite grandchildren, TJ, Travis and Delainey Duggan as well as his little guy, Harrison Spaulding. Tom’s parents, James Edward and Thelma Witnauer Duggan preceded him in death.
