Ray Egan long time postal employee of Savage and Burnsville dies 2016.Raymond E. Egan, age 86, of Savage, passed peacefully and gracefully at his home in Savage, MN, on Thursday, September 8, 2016.

The youngest of 13 children, Ray was born in Savage, MN to George and Sadie (Kennedy) Egan. The Egan family farmed on what is now Hidden Valley Park. During the Korean War, Ray served as a Staff Sergeant in the United States Air Force from 1949-1952 as a Jet Engine Specialist.

Ray married Shirley Coleman on July 3, 1954, in Shakopee, MN. He worked as a Rural Carrier for the U.S. Postal Service for 31 years, delivering mail on a route that included all of Savage and Burnsville. Ray also served more than two decades as a Savage Firefighter.
Ray and Shirley shared a long and happy retirement in Arizona - enjoying frequent adventures around the country in their RV. They returned to Savage, where they've lived the last few years and recently celebrated 62 years of marriage. The family truly appreciated this extra time with Ray, a beloved mentor who taught us all to be our best. Ray's smile melted hearts and his gentle manner shaped our behavior. Ray loved his family, loved God, loved America and was very proud of his Irish heritage. His oft-repeated humorous stories and sayings are treasures that will keep him near, like his advice to us when driving - 'keep'er between the weeds' and 'stay out of the left lane.' Ray was always ready with a good story that we'd heard before, but gladly listened to again. Ray was a restless man, but always with good purpose. He fixed all kinds of things and tinkered with woodworking projects. The evidence surrounds us with a custom wooden shelf here or a little bird-house there. We raise our glass to you Ray - and we know if we were to ask if you'd like another beer - you'd just smile and say, 'a good bartender never asks.' Slainte!

Ray is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Shirley; daughters and son, Liz (Dan) Hughes, Steve Egan (Tracy Pang), Sandy (Jeff) Renner; grandchildren, Nickie (Tim) Nielsen, Scott (Stacey) Hughes, Jessyka (David) Williams, Egan Renner, Rebekka Renner; 9 great-grandchildren; sister, Jane Pentz. Preceded in death by his parents, 11 brothers and sisters.
