NAR/TRA lead counselor Joseph R. Egan passes away

This sad news was just reported on Rocketry Planet. Here's just a short excerpt:
A long time supporter and friend of hobby rocketry, Egan's courtroom performances were lauded by many as stellar any time he took the floor. A supporter of both the Tripoli Rocketry Association and the National Association of Rocketry, he was committed to seeing the lawsuit through to its finality. The protracted length of time the lawsuit has taken to resolve, currently stalemated awaiting a decision from Judge Reggie B. Walton, proved too long for Egan's worsening condition.
My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
