I am deeply saddened by the news of Mike's passing. Mike was a law enforcement colleague who will be deeply missed. He had a great wit but more importantly he was a class act and a true gentlemen - RIP.

My heart and prayers go out to the entire Egan family during this difficult time. I am so sorry for your loss.

I sat in the cubicle next to Mike for a while and always enjoyed talking with him. He was a man that loved his family, spoke of them often and was very proud of them. Rest in Peace, you will be missed.

I first met Mike back in the day when we rode together for Basic Case Manger Training. I was working at Otisville and he was at MCC, NY. Rest In Peace, and now I know why we hit it off (two Leos). Peace and Blessings to your family 🙏🏾

I am so sorry to hear about Mike's passing. I worked in the cubicle next to Mike while he was with the U.S. Marshals Service. He always had photos of his family up and always had a great story to tell about them. He was a man that loved his family. I hope he rests in peace and his family is in my prayers.

I went to high school with Mike long ago and have never forgotten his kindness and positive spirit. Hopefully he and Mike Andrews, another one of our classmates who left us too soon, have reconnected over a beer. My sincere condolences to the Egan family.
