Obit: John Thomas Colligan

January 23, 1975 – August 19, 2021

A service to honor the life of John Thomas Colligan will be held at 1 pm on Saturday, August 28, 2021 at Blanchard-St. Denis Funeral Home. Burial will follow at L.C. Weaver Cemetery in Campti, LA. The family will receive friends from 5 pm until 8 pm on Friday, August 27th at Blanchard-St. Denis Funeral Home.

John, 46 years of age and a resident of Elgin, TX passed away on August 19, 2021. Although John’s formative years were tough years, it was overcoming those adversities that shaped his character and made him a strong person. He was a truly gifted artist and demonstrated his talents through drawing, painting, glass blowing and even authoring a children’s book. He dearly loved his family and friends, of which he made numerous friends throughout the course of his life. Being an animal lover, he especially was fond of turtles and cats. He enjoyed sci-fi movies, particularly all of the Star Wars movies that he attended with his mother. For many years he worked in the Asset Protection Department of Wal-Mart, and genuinely enjoyed his line of work. He will forever be remembered by his family and friends as a loving and caring person that beyond doubt followed the beat of his own drum. It was those great characteristics that made him the man we will severely miss.

John is survived by his mother, Myra Myers and husband Clem of McKinney, TX; the closest of brothers, Channing Colligan; his children, Ethan and London; and a step-sister, Sara Nelson and husband Wes of Mansfield, TX and their children, Cadence, Davis, and Cora, who John loved like his own children; as well as uncles, aunts and cousins.
