Tom K Duncan

April 25, 1959 - December 9, 2017

Tom Duncan, age 58, passed away on Saturday, December 9, 2017, after a valiant battle with cancer. He was born on April 25, 1959, to Doug and Neta Duncan in Ogden, Utah. Tom attended Ben Lomond High School and later married Lynda Church.

Tom was a man of many faces. He enjoyed golfing, camping, fishing, and riding his Harley. He loved and cherished his wife of 38 years. He was proud of all his kids and grandkids, especially his grandson Taegen, who is a US Marine.

He had many friends from all walks of life. He had a genuine passion for getting to know people and hearing their stories. Tom lived on his own terms right to the end. He will be forever missed.

Special thanks to Clair Weeding, his lifelong friend.

Tom is survived by his wife Lynda, son Todd Duncan, daughter Shannon (Shane) Armstrong, stepson Cody Runnels, stepdaughter Jodie (Brook) Rogers, seven sisters, four grandkids, and three step-grandkids.

He is preceded in death by his dad Doug, mom Neta, brother Dave, and his little “buddy” Tramp.

I really enjoyed my life experiences with Tom. Being 9 years older than him I looked on him as a little brother. We would target shoot often and had many good times hunting pheasant in the Weber river valley. One time Kathy dropped us off in Weber canyon to hunt deer and was to pick us up the next day. We camped much too far away to make it back to the pick up spot and she was not happy when we finally got back nearly at sundown. He was a fun guy to be around and always had something witty to say and seemed to bring out the best in people. I'm a better person because of our friendship.


Kathryn Hiney posted on 12/14/17

When we met Tom, he was 15, I 18, and Dave 24. At the time, Tom was still living with his parents at the family home in West Ogden. We lived right around the corner. One day, we were hangin' out and Tom walked by. He struck up a conversation. We became fast friends and have stayed friends ever since. That was 43 years ago! There were times we didn't see Tom... We moved out of Ogden and he was busy making his way. But on an occasional visit to my sister Vicki in Ogden, we would call Tom and pick up where we left off. We met Lynda during that time. When we retired in 2005, we lived in Paonia, Colorado and Tom looked us up. He visited us there, bringing Lynda and their little Dog, Tramp. Being retired, we visited Vicki more often and Tom & Lynda invited us to stay with them as well. One of our best memories is while on a trip to Ogden, Tom, Lynda, Dave & I rode motorcycles through the beautiful mountain country of Northern Utah. Just a lovely summer day, enjoying each other's company. I just want to say that Tom enriched our life with his lifelong friendship. We loved him and we will miss him.

Lynda, I am so sorry to hear of Tom's passing. He was a good guy and I always considered him a friend. My heart is heavy for you and all you have been through, I understand how hard it is to care for someone you love while they are ill. If there's anything I can do for you or if you just need someone to listen, please feel free to contact me. I've always thought of you as family.

Tommy, You meant so very much too me when I lived in West Ogden, I was so very young married to your brother David. It was such a challenge with your very large family They were extremely challenging and you helped me on many occasions. I will always be grateful too you for that. You made me feel stronger with each conversation we had. You were such a very good man, you loved your family and were a light at the end of my dark tunnel. You will be loved and missed immensely!
