Condolences to the Egan Family.RIP.

A man of intellect, wit, compassion and cultural curiosity, he adored God, his family, his Passionist brethren, close friends and parishioners. A modest man, he would be humbled by the high regard in which he was so clearly held. I hope he knew how much he meant to everyone.

A steady fixture in my own family for over 70 years, he will be very much missed.

With condolences to the Egans, all at Mount Argus and his inner circle. May Ralph rest in peace.
