We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Rochette Funeral Home & Cremation Services
Brian P. Eagan of Nashua, formerly of Wayland, MA, passed away in his sleep at home from a heart attack on Tuesday, August 24th. He was the beloved husband of Jennifer Merghart Eagan, also from Wayland, where they met and began their life together. He was born in Newton on October 6, 1964, son of the late Richard E. and Laura (Franz) Eagan.
Brian displayed artistic and musical talent at a young age and pursued these interests well into adulthood. Pulling into the driveway on Oxbow Road, you couldn’t help but hear Brian playing the drums to Steely Dan or witnessing him practice his martial arts, inspired by his love of Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris.
Brian enlisted in the US Marine Corp following his graduation from Wayland High School, class of 1983, and bravely served in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm during the Gulf War. Brian was proudest of his service to our country, his devoted marriage to Jen of 33 years, and his extraordinary relationship with “Big D”, his father and biggest supporter. His mother often mentioned that Brian was “the cutest of all my babies”, but he will best be remembered for his big heart and for giving his all to those who counted on him.
Brian is survived by his wife, Jennifer, his sisters, Patricia A. Eagan of Holyoke, MA, Christine M. Eagan of Waltham, MA, Carol J. Sherrin of Saratoga Springs, NY, Tracy E. McGill of Duxbury, MA, and brothers, Michael K. Eagan of Sudbury, MA, Richard E. Eagan, Jr. of Duxbury, MA, Thomas W. Eagan of Manhattan, NY, several nieces and nephews and predeceased by his brother Stephen D. Grace of Medford, MA.
A Catholic Funeral Mass will be held on Friday, October 1st at 10 AM in Holy Family Church, 601 Tremont Sreet, Duxbury, MA, followed by a private military burial service.
