Tom Lanigan

Tom left this world for his next big adventure after a three-year battle with cancer. He will be missed by all whose lives he touched. Many will recall Tom’s laugh, legendary sense of humor and love of all things fun.

Tom and his wife Jana relocated from California in 2001 to the Roaring Fork Valley, where he avidly enjoyed skiing and whitewater sports. Tom’s love of the mountains was only enhanced by years of creative and masterful building with Jack Wilkie Builders, leaving behind a legacy of dream homes.

He is survived by his wife, Jana Lanigan; son, Evan; daughter, Emily; and his sisters and their families, including many adored nieces and nephews.
