Carrigan



Join us in honoring John by supporting the John A Carrigan Memorial Fund.

Born February 17, 1945, to parents Bessie and Bernard Carrigan in Peoria, Il, John was the youngest of four children. He attended Bradley University before enlisting in the U.S. Army where he served as a helicopter pilot in the 119th Assault Helicopter Company from 1966 to 1970. For his selfless acts in Vietnam, he received two purple hearts, and was recommended for the Distinguished Flying Cross, the nation's fourth-highest award. John was also awarded the Air Medal for his distinguished service during his 12-month tour of duty in Vietnam.

On March 9, 1969, John married Susan Montgomery and proceeded to raise 3 wonderful children. He worked for AMP/Tyco for 27 years as a Director of Sales & Marketing. Upon retirement in 2010, John and Sue moved to Colorado where they renewed their love for the outdoors by taking up hiking and biking. John continued his hobby of researching history, particularly the Civil War and WWII eras.

Never able to stay fully retired, John joined the Pikes Peak Chapter of Military Officers of America (PPC-MOAA), and became chapter president in 2016. He absolutely loved his role as the president and was passionate about helping the returning vets.

John is survived by his wife, Susan (Montgomery) Carrigan; his three children: Amy (Carrigan) Ehm, Bryan Carrigan, and Jennifer Carrigan; son-in-law Ron Ehm; two grandchildren, two brothers and a sister, and several nieces and nephews. He will be terribly missed by family and friends.

Join us in honoring John by supporting the John A Carrigan Memorial Fund.
