Tom/Betty/Margie & family
I just learned of TJs passing. I was truly stunned. My deepest sympathy to family. God rest his soul.
Thomas John "TJ"Duignan(36,) was called to Heaven on Tuesday, May 16, 2006 in Brentwood, CA. TJ battled cancer for the last year and is now at peace. TJ is survived by the love of his life, Margie, and his two beautiful children, Skylar (7) and Owen (2). He is also survived by his parents Thomas Duignan and Betty and Gerald Berry who will miss him dearly. His loving sisters Michelle, Alisa and Stephanie will cherish their memories with him forever. TJ also leaves behind his beloved parents-in-law John and Lillian Shebelut and sister in-law Nicole. Other survivors include Grandmother Connie Hilsendager; brothers-in law, Andrew Devlin and Maurice O'Grady, nieces; Elizabeth, Erin, Lindsey and nephew Jake. Thanks ! go out for the huge outpouring of love and kindness from the hundreds of special friends and family who have supported them through this ordeal and who continue to be there for the family, with a special mention to close friends, Scott and Susie Pagter. TJ was born in Daly City on May 3, 1970. He graduated from South San Francisco High School and attended San Jose State University. TJ began his career at Chili's fifteen years ago and it's been said there has never been someone so passionate about his job or who loved to go to work each day with a big smile on his face. He touched the lives of many during his time there and the support Chili's and the Chili's family has shown him and his family during this difficult time will be forever appreciated. TJ loved kids and all kids loved him. He passed on his love of sports to his children by coaching both soccer and T-Ball and was an avid fan of the 49ers, Giants! and Warriors.
