Thomas E. Duque ’80 was born on Sept. 29, 1957, and incredibly proud of his family and its heritage. His concern for others, his joy in the natural world—along with his kind and gentle spirit—were reflected in his volunteer work with Big Brothers, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, National Audubon Society, and the Sierra Club. Tom was a graduate of the Cate School, SCU, and Southwestern Law School, and was a fourth-generation practicing attorney in Los Angeles, California, for 30 years. He left this world gracefully and with dignity on Nov. 23, 2017, after a 14-year battle with polycystic kidney disease. He joins his parents, Marilyn and Gabriel Duque, and his equally courageous brother, Mark, in heaven. He will be deeply missed by sisters Mary Duque Cohen (Jeff), Martha Duque MacEachern (Matt), Trish Taylor Duque (Mark), and nieces and nephews Brendan Kiggen (living kidney donor to Tom, 2004), Allison Cohen, Matthew Cohen, and Emma MacEachern.
