How We Can Help The Quigley Family


The Quigley Family of San Elijo Hills tragically lost Eddie Quigley to a car accident on Monday, Nov. 18th. He was on his way to work driving on Elfin Forest Road.

He is left behind by his wife, Tristan and their three girls, Riley 6, Zoe 4, and Harper 17 months. Riley is a first grade student at San Elijo Elementary and Zoe attends preschool at Raggedy Ann & Andy.

He worked at Rady Children’s Hospital, focusing on research in clinical trials. He collaborated with researchers throughout the San Diego medical community and especially at the University of California San Diego.

  • Wow. So sorry to hear of your loss. I know I don’t know you and don’t know what I could do for help. But prayers of eventual peace and happiness again, I guess.

  • I did not know Eddie Quigley. Yet we have volunteered several times at Rady Children’s Hospital, and what I can tell you is, “the impact that Eddies life’s work will have on thousands of children is a priceless legacy he leaves behind.”

    In these times of unexpected life events, all we can do is reflect on how preciious and valuable every day really is, for we can never get a moment of time back. This shows us how important the people in our lives are, and how matierial things are not. My wife and I will support you anyway you need Tristan, even if it’s just to help you breath a little easier during this difficult time of transition. I speak for all of us, when I say, “you and the girls have the entire San Elijo Hills community here to stand with you and behind you.

  • So sorry for your loss. Thoughts and prayers are with you and family.

  • Very very sorry for your loss. Such a sad thing to happen. Everyone needs to take it easy on EF Road.

  • How sad. I am so sorry for your loss.

  • I am so sorry for such a tragic loss of a great man that did great deeds in his short lifetime, Tristan, when you are able to bring the girls to the ranch, I would like to give them some complementary riding lessons and time with the rescue animals to take them away from their sadness for a little break, I’m here for you and your beautiful girls, God bless

  • We are saddened by your loss and would like to offer the services of Church Of The Hills if we can serve you in any way. Raymond van Pletsen (760) 917-1490.
