Bryan P. Duggan
June 3, 1954 – March 9, 2023
He began his life's journey in Burien, WA with his parents Paul and Lorraine, big sister Dianna and brother Mark. He grew up in a neighborhood of boys, lots of fun and mischief, belonged to the Boy Scouts, church activities and Little League Football, which his Dad coached. Bryan had gerbils, hamsters and even had a lizard at one time.
Added to the family were two foster sisters Tela and Veda, a 'full house'. The family took trips to the ocean, parks and a Disneyland vacation. High school was a growing up time, learning to drive, and trying different sports. Bryan discovered that wrestling was his sport, along with lots of his school friends. He was given a scholarship to wrestle at the local college. After two years, he started his career repairing machinery and maintaining the equipment in the Alaska salmon canning industry. He worked on Prince of Wales Island, Kodiak Island and Annette Island. He began having some health issues so he started traveling all over the U.S., where he remembered being with his parents and brother on so many great adventures. He even went to Central America for two years. His traveling days ended when he moved from his condo in Des Moines, WA to Olympia, to once again live close his family; he was always making new friends.
Bryan is survived by his mother Lorraine, brother Mark (Lucy), brother-in-law Don, the Hewa family; aunt Karol (Roger) and many cousins, nieces and nephews; Christopher (Ashley) Duggan, Sean Duggan, Tela (Mike), Donna (Ken) and Bryan's buddies. He joins those on life's ending journey to a better place; his father Paul, brother Stephan, sister Dianna, uncle Earl, Jr. and his dear grandparents Earl and Anna Magnusson.
A Celebration of Bryan's Life will be held on Friday, April 14th, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Edwards Catholic Church, 601 W. "C" Street in Shelton, WA, a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, make a donation to the Salvation Army or and Food Bank.
"All the pain and grief is over, every restless tossing passed; I am now at peace forever, safely home in Heaven at last."
