Veteran TV producer and writer Tom Egan died March 6 at the Motion Picture Hospital in Woodland Hills following a battle with cancer. He was 69.
Egan began his show business career in radio at Fordham U. and live television in New York, where he worked on such programs as “Captain Kangaroo,” “Candid Camera” and “The Jimmy Dean Show.”
In 1966, he moved to Los Angeles with Bob Banner Associates.
Egan wrote and produced, among other projects, “Nadia: From Romania With Love,” and co-wrote the TV docu-mentary “The American West of John Ford.”
He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Joan, as well as two sons, three daughters and six grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Motion Picture Fund or the Braille Institute.
