Birth: Feb. 14, 1921
Death: Apr. 18, 2012
St. Louis County

Corrigan, John T. Tom died April 18 in Ellisville, MO, 69 days after his wife, Marian D. Corrigan, died. He is survived by three children and their spouses: Thomas J. Corrigan and Lynn Rae Bresko of Greensboro, N.C.; Gail and Pat Kruse of St. Louis; Peggy Corrigan and Charles Hantz of Dallas. He was preceded in death by his parents, Patrick and Anne Corrigan, who emigrated from Ireland through Ellis Isle; two brothers, Edward and Joseph; a sister, Gertrude McGinty; all of Cleveland. He was educated by the Jesuits and graduated from John Carroll University in 1942, the first person in his family with a degree. He served as a naval officer in the Pacific during World War II. He worked in sales in Cleveland, Detroit, St. Louis, Chicago and finally Salt Lake City, supporting a family and chasing the American dream. Off the road, the party did not start until he got there, but, luckily, he got there early and stayed late. He was always the funniest person in the room. His plate was always full, his glass never half empty and there was always room for gelato. He was always ready for the next adventure, whether it was a trip to Italy or a trip to Wal-Mart. He loved new technology, including his MAC and might have been one of the oldest iPhone owners in America. May the good God have him in His keeping.
