Egan, daughter-in-law Amy Egan, granddaughters Kayla and Gabriella, and countless friends. Tom excelled in most areas of his remarkable life. In academics he earned three Master's degrees and a Doctorate. In his profession as an educator, he was an inspiring teacher at both the High School and University levels. Tom was a natural athlete. He played baseball until age 70 and softball with the Austin Senior Softball League until age 82. During his teaching career, Tom was a gifted Coach of both baseball and football.
