Mr. Thomas James McColligan passed away Sunday, May 23, 2021 at Moses Cone Memorial Hospital in Greensboro, NC. Born July 21, 1950 in Scranton, PA and reared in Dundalk, MD, he was a son of the late Evelyn Colman Francis and her husband, Earl, and Paul Patrick McColligan.

Following high school, Tom completed law enforcement training and moved to the Eastern Shore of Virginia, serving as an officer in the Town of Onancock for many years, and later, as a Correctional Officer with Accomack County. Tom proudly served his country as a member of the Virginia National Guard, and was quite possibly the biggest Baltimore Ravens and Orioles fan to ever live.

Tom is survived by his children, Thomas “Tommy” McColligan of New York, Kelly McColligan of Princess Anne, MD, Robby McColligan of Crisfield, MD, Jessica Daniels (Jonathan) of Chesapeake, VA, Christopher Muller (Katie) of Daytona, FL, Bobbie Williams (Roland) of Parksley, VA, and John McColligan of Bloxom, VA; step daughters, Lauren Divine of Greensboro, NC and Sandy Francis of Wattsville, VA and their families; sisters, Janet, Betty, Donna, and Cindy; brothers, Danny and Bobby; his best friend, David Matthews, who was like a brother; and several grandchildren; two great-granddaughters; and numerous nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his wives, Donna Divine McColligan and Tracy Peters McColligan; and granddaughter, Tracey Peters.
