Visitation Information

On Sunday, January 2, 2011, God called His weary warrior home. Jim battled cancer for over four years and his courage and sense of humor inspired everyone who knew him.

Preceded in death by his father, William Egan.

Survived by his mother, Patricia Egan; loving wife of 25 years, Joanne; sons, Matthew, Jonathan and Nicholas; siblings, Theresa Wolf (Charlie), Cathy Egan Anderson (Rick), Janet (Ernie), Joseph (Mary), Sally (Bill), Donald (Pam) Bonnie Boufford (Bob), Mark (Patti), and Molly Martin (Terry); many nieces and nephews; special mother-in-law, Deloris Greenstein, and Apollo.

Jim was born on May 13, 1961 in Golden Valley and after graduating from St. Thomas University, spent his career in the accounting field. Jim loved golfing, fishing, camping, and the Vikings, but most of all spending time with family and friends.

Memorials preferred to the family or to the N.C. Little Hospice in Edina and American Cancer Society.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Jim through our jobs at LDI. I met him when he visited the MS plant a few years ago. I want you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with your family. May God bless you all.

    I transferred to St. Thomas for my junior and senior years, which were also Jim’s junior and senior years. I met him from, not only accounting classes, but a mutual friend – John Herber. I was sorry to hear about Jim’s passing and wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
