Thomas P. Flanigan

Thomas Patrick Flanigan, 78 of Myrtle Beach, SC, passed away on February 2, 2020 after his battle with a Parkinsonian Syndrome.

Tom was born on October 31, 1941 to Joseph Leonard Flanigan, and Bridget Christina Flanigan (McClorey) in Philadelphia, PA. He Graduated from North Catholic High School in 1959 and served in the United States Navy.

Tom was predeceased by his sister Eva Shay (Flanigan) and her husband Robert Shay, and his brothers Joseph Flanigan and his wife Dorothy Flanigan (Sturgeon), James (Jimmy) Flanigan and his wife Joan E. (Lynch), and his brother in law John (Jack) P. Connors. Nephew Brian Connors and Great Nephew Larry Schnarr, Nieces Kathleen (Flanigan) Kelly, Dottie Ann (Flanigan) Maher. And his beloved In-laws Paul R. and Lillian S. Schoeninger (Graham) whom he fondly called Moo and Poo.

He is survived by his wife of 55 years Margaret T. Flanigan (nee Schoeninger), his children Thomas (Tom) Joseph Flanigan, Michael (Mike) Patrick Flanigan, and his daughter Margaret (Meg) G. Flanigan Walker and son in law Dennis Walker, his grandchildren Lily and Liam Walker, and Brendan Michael Flanigan, his sister, Christine (Flanigan) Connors, as well as many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. And his In-laws Paul R. Schoeninger, Jr., Lillian S. Loftus (Schoeninger) and Joseph P. Loftus.


Tom was a Regional Field Service Manager who began his life long career with Cheshire, a Special Business Division of Xerox Corporation, and through company acquisitions, retired in 2000 from Danaher Corporation. In 2003 he and his wife moved from Langhorne PA after 35 years to Myrtle Beach SC to enjoy a warmer climate and beach living! He always loved the beach and enjoyed many trips to them in the Caribbean and in the states.

Tom enjoyed serving his community during his many years with the Langhorne Lions Club and with the Elks Lodge in Myrtle Beach. He also served on our Carolina Winds Board of Directors.  He thoroughly enjoyed his time on the Senior Advisory Committee for the City of Myrtle Beach. After Tom’s retirement, prior to and after moving to the beach, he held many part time positions … until it interrupted his ‘retirement time’.

Tom was always willing to lend a hand and bring a smile to those he met along the way. He was an energetic, fun loving ‘people’ person who made so many friends along his life path. He will be sadly missed by all … In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be to the charity of one's own choice.

We will always have very fond memories of Tom
and all of us in St.Maarten. We especially recall the first time we meet at the bar at Pelican and then all the many years we shared at La Vista.
Our deepest condolences.

So sad to lose Uncle Tom, and will really miss him. We shared a Halloween birthday. Uncle Tom was very engaging and funny, and he adored my Aunt Marge!
