Matthew Egan, age 75, passed away on February 9, 2024 at his home in Birch Bay, WA. Matthew was born on March 3, 1948 in Seattle to parents, Virginia and Michael Egan. A carpenter by trade, but everyone who met him knew that music was his passion. Matthew traveled throughout the U.S. and Europe playing guitar in multiple bands.
