Obituary of James Egan

James was a fun-loving, helpful man. He enjoyed helping his dad do yardwork, and could often be found mowing the lawn after his neighbor, Nick, taught him how. He once decided to make a dump run for his grandpa when the trash man didn’t show up, and loaded a wheelbarrow full of newspapers to push to Attica. He made it all the way up Union to Broadway before he had to stop for a rest and was found by the police.

James loved watching Bisons games and Nascar races. He loved movies and had a huge movie collection. The only thing he loved more than movies was food. Mom’s Sunday dinners were his favorite, and he would steal food right off your plate if you weren’t careful. Please take a fork in James’ honor as a reminder that if you love something - love it the way James loved food.
