He then relocated to Los Angeles, where he worked as the executive administrator of the Municipal Elections Committee of Los Angeles, a political action committee promoting gay, lesbian and women’s rights.

In 1986 Magrath joined Carlyle Management and five years later formed his own personal management company, Erik Magrath Co., which eventually became Magrath & Sargent Management.

A member of the Conference of Personal Managers Inc., Magrath was currently serving on its board of directors as second vice president.

Magrath is survived by his mother, Marjorie D. (DiMento) Magrath, two brothers, two sisters and numerous nieces and nephews.
