About Joe Eggleston
On July 31st, our Dad/Grandpa Joe left San Diego/Mexico to go on a fishing trip to Sitka, Alaska with a bunch of buddies. He had the best trip ever, partied HARDY, caught 150 pounds of fish, reminisced about the good ole days, bonded with the boys, enjoyed himself and his company every day. The last day of the trip (August 5th), the gang went to breakfast. Dad decided to sleep in, told Alan to say good-bye for him, and off they went. When Alan returned, our Dad was already gone. EMS was called, arrived almost instantly, tended to my Dad for 45 minutes, and then transferred him to the hospital. Unfortunately, they were unable to save him. We were told that he passed from a massive heart attack.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 20th , 4:00pm at:

Pasadena, CA., 91104
Our world has definately lost one hell of a great person. Please take a moment to say good-bye or share your thoughts, feelings or memories with the rest of us. We will cherish your words forever.
