It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of Thomas Harrigan, a beloved husband, father, and friend, who departed from this world on March 14, 2024. Born on July 12, 1945, in Milwaukee, WI, Tom's journey on this earth was marked by love, laughter, and cherished moments shared with those he held dear.
 
 Thomas will be dearly missed by his devoted spouse, Juliana “Julie”; his loving children, Kelli and John, and his former wife, Mari Osmon. He is survived by his sisters, Marion (Larry) Konrath, Patricia (Carl) D'Amato, and Irene Harrigan, as well as his step-brother, Dan (Karen) Schroeder, and many nieces, nephews, and their children. In his peaceful rest, Thomas joins his parents, John and Mary Delores Harrigan; step-father, Harvey Schroeder; his brother, Michael; parents-in-law, Clarence and Agnes Watrin; sister-in-law, Anastasia Watrin and other beloved family members who have passed before him.
 
 Throughout his life, Tom embraced joy in the simple things, finding solace in the beauty of Bay Lake, MN, and the warmth of Port Charlotte, FL. A retiree from a fulfilling career in sales, Thomas reveled in the serenity of fishing and the camaraderie of the lake during the summer months. His winters were spent relaxing by the pool, soaking up the Florida sun in his favorite lounge chair.
 
 A man of strength and resilience, Thomas found solace in his journey of recovery and was a dedicated friend of Bill W. In 2013, he received a second chance at life through a heart transplant, a gift from Kyle that granted him precious additional years to cherish his family and the world around him.

isitation will be held from 5:00-7:00 p.m., Monday, April 1, 2024 at Mattson Funeral Home, 343 North Shore Drive, Forest Lake, Minnesota and one hour prior to Mass at the church.  Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m., Tuesday, at the Church of the Immaculate Conception, 4030 Jackson Street NE, Columbia Heights, with a luncheon to follow.
