Tommy was born September 22, 1935, in Baker City, Oregon, at the St. Elizabeth Hospital on 4th Street to Louis and Geneva Duncan, then home to Muddy Creek.  He was the oldest of 4 children.  He attended Baker High School and graduated in 1953.  He attended the University of Portland in the ROTC program and graduated in 1957.  He joined the United States Air Force and retired after 20 years as a Captain.  He served in the Vietnam War.

In 1965, Tommy and his parents partnered to start a cattle ranch, and they moved from Baker to Keating to Haines to be closer to their home place on Muddy Creek.  He served on the Haines City Council and Haines Community Activities.  Genealogy was of special interest to him.
