It is with heavy hearts that the family of Phillip James Egan announce his passing on November 25, 2021 at his home in Cuyahoga Falls. He was born October 9, 1952 in Chicago Heights and was the first of eleven children.
He attended Marion Catholic High School where he was a member of the track team and held many school records. After graduation he attended Marquette University and majored in marketing. While at Marquette, he made friends who were with him throughout his life. After graduation, Phil worked for Kraft Foods for a few years. Then Phil had an opportunity to move up to a better position selling medical supplies with Time Med. Eventually, Phil followed his father's footsteps, and joined Mactac in a sales position in Chicago His success brought him to Ohio, as a product manager in 1993.
While he was in Ohio working, he met his future wife, Devon Schubert, in 1995, and they were married several years later. In 2000, they became the proud parents of Pierce John, and he is their greatest love. Above all, Phil thrived on constantly learning and having new experiences. He loved to engage people in conversation, and because of his quick wit the conversation was always riddled with laughter. Because of his love of coffee and conversation, and the many hours he spent at Starbucks, his friends were starting to believe he had unending shares of stock in the company.

The days we had him in our life were all too short, and he will be greatly missed.
