It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Bill Eagan at 91 years of age. Bill was born in Omaha, NE to Harry & Loretta Eagan. He graduated from University of Nebraska in Lincoln in 1951 with a B.S in Mechanical Engineering. He had a successful 38-year career as an engineer with General Electric in Taunton, MA, Erie, PA, Livermore, CA and San Jose, CA. One memory he enjoyed sharing was when he rode 25,000 miles in 6 weeks to test the bearings on a locomotive. He spent the bulk of his career in the nuclear energy division designing and building test facilities.
After retiring he enjoyed traveling abroad with his wife, Pat, of 66 years. Together they also enjoyed the activities of the Almaden Community Center. He was loved by his wife, 4 children, and multiple generations of grandchildren.
