Eglinton, Dr. Daniel Thomas "Dan" - Asheville  
Dr. Daniel "Dan" Thomas Eglinton Asheville - Dr. Daniel (Dan) Thomas Eglinton, M.D. (also lovingly known by his patients as Dr. E), 64, of Asheville NC, went to be with the Lord on August 2, 2016. Dan is survived by his loving wife of 40 years Andrea Leigh Eglinton, his mother Cathryn Eglinton, his son Jonathan Jeffrey Eglinton (Mindy) and his daughters Ashleigh Jeanne Stoia (Luke) and Lisa-Caroline Harkins (Peter). Dan was a beloved grandfather to 7 grandchildren, a dear brother, uncle and friend to all. Dan was born on February 6, 1951 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He received his undergraduate and medical degrees Cum Laude from the University of New Mexico where he was a state tennis champion and played D1 Tennis at UNM. After falling in love with the Blue Ridge Mountains, he moved his young family to Asheville to practice Orthopaedic Medicine and has been serving the Asheville community for over 33 years. Nationally and internationally known, during his career, Dan was Chief of Surgery and Chief of Division Orthopaedics at Mission Hospital where he performed the first Adult Stem Cell Knee Transplant in NC. A leader and member of numerous non-profit boards, clinics and organizations, he was recognized as a published author, speaker and inventor for his pioneering research in adult stem cell therapy and innovative Orthopaedic care. Dr. E's legacy will always be cherished in the patients he loved and cared for throughout his medical career. A firm believer, in "How Scots Invented the Modern World," he was devoted to the wearing of the kilt for any possible occasion. Dan found great joy being "Papa" to his grandchildren, restoring antiques, woodworking, fly-fishing and eating anything with chocolate in it. His brilliance, deep laugh and infectious humor will be missed by many. For patients and friends who would like to pay respects, there will be an open house at 172 Asheland Ave, Ste. C on Friday, August 26th from 10 am-12 pm. A private memorial will be announced at a later date. The family requests in lieu of flowers donations be sent to the Regenerative Medicine Fund at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center - a non-profit that funds and promotes adult stem cell therapy research.
