Thomas "Tom" Quigley

Thomas “Tom” Quigley, 89, of Vienna, VA, passed away on April 19th after a valiant battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis.

Tom was born on July 21, 1932 to the late James and Marie Quigley in Philadelphia, PA. After graduating from West Catholic High School in 1950, he went on to study Accounting at St. Joseph’s College.

After graduation, he received his draft notice for the United States Army where he served as an Auditor for the 101st Airborne Division. After separating from the Army, he landed a job as a Financial Analyst for Smith, Kline, & French. He later accepted a position with GE as a Systems Analyst in New York City, eventually leaving for a post In Washington D.C. with the United States Coast Guard Department of Homeland Security serving as the Chief, Financial Officer.

In 1951, he met Margaret Ann Devlin (Peg), and they wed in 1956, going on to have 4 children, Thomas, Maureen, Sean, and Christine. Their loving and happy marriage lasted 61 years until Peg died in 2018. Tom is survived by his brother Jack and sister Mary Ellen; his son Tom and his wife Norine; his daughter Maureen (Mo) and her husband Jeff; his son Sean; his daughter Chris and her husband Nelson; his four granddaughters, Lauren Miles, Chelsea Ecklebe, Brielle Quigley and Kelsey Raymond; and two great-granddaughters, Caroline Miles and Georgia Ecklebe. Tom was preceded in death by his loving wife, Peg, his parents and older brother, James.

Tom had a quick wit, and could strike up a conversation with just about anyone. He was an avid gardener, excellent cook, enjoyed landscape painting, time spent with family at his vacation home in Bethany Beach, and the occasional political discussion. He enjoyed having his family close by to celebrate birthdays and holidays. His family meant more to him than anything else in the world, something he often mentioned and greatly appreciated especially during his final days. He will be remembered and greatly missed for his selfless love, words of wisdom, caring and thoughtful ways and most importantly as the best husband, father, and pop-pop.

Funeral arrangements are private. The family requests that in lieu of flowers a charitable donation be made to the American Lung Association in honor of Thomas Quigley and/or The Alzheimer’s Association in memory of his wife, Margaret Ann Quigley.

Memories Timeline


  1. Tom was our neighbor for 11 years. We absolutely adored him. We loved watching him over the years tend to his lawn and garden, and always share a smile and a wave. We loved baking for him, and making him a meal here and there. He was always so thankful. I know Ms. Peggy will greet him with open arms in heaven. We will truly miss you Mr. Tom!
