Thomas Michael McElligott II, was taken from us suddenly on May 13, 2005. He is the beloved son of Dorothy & Jeff Dempsey of San Antonio, TX and Thomas M. McElligott of Harleyville, SC. Michael's life was full of joy and love that he shared with his children; his daughters, Avery Jayde, 9, and Blayke Margaret, 6, and his son, Coleman Avant, 3. Most important, the love of his life, his best friend, soul mate, and wife of 11 years, Kris McElligott. Michael is also survived by his sisters, Tricia McElligott of San Antonio, TX and Devin Dempsey of Austin, TX; his maternal grandparents, Patricia & Ernst Hoessly of San Antonio, TX; his mother-in-law Myra Avant of Amarillo, TX; and numerous relatives and friends. After graduating from Clark High School in 1986, he continued his education at Texas Tech University with a degree from the School of Finance. Please, in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to a fund setup for the children payable to Dorothy Dempsey, and mail to our home address: 4531 Black Walnut Woods, San Antonio, Texas 78249. To leave a note for the family, go to and Select Obituaries.
