John M. Egan Jr. was born January 6, 1939 in Bronx, New York and passed away December 24, 2016 at Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg, Virginia at the age of 77. He is survived by his sons Sean (Anne) Egan and Richard (Irene) Egan and two grandsons Shane R. Egan and Sean E. Egan.

MGSGT John M. Egan Jr first joined the US Marine Corps as a reservist and later enlisted in active duty retiring in 1989 after thirty-two years of dedicated service to his country. MGSGT Egan was assigned to HMX-1 for much of his career where he served several Presidents. John was also assigned to Marine Corps Air Station Quantico, Station Operations and Engineering Squadron Quantico, Development Center Quantico, Fleet Marine Corps Forces Atlantic Headquarters in Norfolk, VA., and various other world-wide assignments. John also served two tours in Vietnam and was awarded numerous citations and medals including the Legion of Merit Medal, Defense Meritorious Service Medal and Meritorious Service Medal. Upon retirement John became a tireless advocate for veterans and acute veteran affairs.

John was a member of various veteran and civic associations such as the American Legion, Veteran of Foreign Wars, The Marine Corps League, Military Order of the Devil Dogs, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, DC Fire Department Emerald Society, and Stafford Volunteer Fire Department.

John was active in youth sports in Prince William County, as well as, the Boy Scouts in the National Capital Region and Japan. John loved to watch his grandsons play baseball.

A visitation will be held at 1000 hours followed by a memorial service at 1100 hours at The National Museum of the Marine Corps Chapel, January 12, 2017, at 18900 Jefferson Davis Highway, Triangle, Virginia. Interment will be at Quantico National Cemetery at 1200 hours with full military honors.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to a local charity called Home of Miracles and Embraces, Inc. (H.O.M.E.). The donations will directly support the American Veteran’s Ball (AVB) an event that John was very excited about and enjoyed attending. Several youth programs benefit from (AVB) to include the area JR ROTC high school programs.
