    Dave, you were always a kind, intelligent friend with a wonderful sense of humor. I'll treasure the memories of you, with your loyal companion, Lucky, when you lived a couple of years out on the west coast. I'll miss our enduring friendship and our long conversations about all things historical and political, of which you had an amazing depth of knowledge. My condolences to all of your friends and family. Rest in peace my dear friend.

    After all these years (forty or more), my brother, Joe, and I will always cherish the memories of David Egan. He grew up across the street from us in a neighborhood filled with many kids and endless rounds of 'CAPTURE THE FLAG.' Incredibly, David always took the game to the next level by carrying a plastic bag filled with candy. Once we divided into teams, the boundaries of the game were clearly established. Still, David and his bag of candy persuaded his teammates to explore uncharted game areas! Ultimately, David surprised us all by sharing his bag of candy with the opposing team, as they quickly captured our team's flag. In his own way, David exemplified a powerful life lesson! Sadly, our present-day lives lead us to diverse corners of the globe, causing us to lose touch with neighborhood friends from long ago. I thank David for serving our nation in the Air Force. I'm confident he served with courage, honor, and mutual respect. He carried these core values with his selfless service to others at the University of North Carolina and elders in their final stages of life in rest homes. Jimmy and Marsha, the world has lost a good man, and you have lost a brother. Our heartfelt condolences to you both during this time of loss.
