AGAR WJanuary 28, 1929 – February 24, 2015
at the age of 86 years

Egan passed away in Salmon Arm, B.C. on February 24, 2015. Pre-deceased by his parents Carl and Anne Agar and sister Dorothy. Survived by his loving wife Lois and children Barrie, Carla and Scott as well as grandchildren Christina and Kyle. Egan was born in Edmonton in January of 1929 and moved from the family farm to Penticton B.C. when he was eighteen, joining the Air Force shortly thereafter. Egan came from an aviation family and loved to fly. Following his four year posting in Germany he returned to work with his father at Okanagan Helicopters and flew all over the world. After living in various parts of B.C. the family settled in Sorrento in 1969. During his retirement he built himself a shop where he took on woodworking projects for friends and family. We are eternally grateful for the excellent care he received at Piccadilly Place where he spent his last few years. He is sorely missed by family and friends.

When Egan found out that I was born in Morocco and I told him the town: Fedala, he and I shared a good laugh as we both knew a special place called the Sphinx!… Great person to work with, he gave me some precious advices in the Arctic!.. Thank you Egan.
