I have just heard of Father Egon's death last Sunday at the age of 91. I was very grateful to
Woodside Priory for giving me my first teaching job in California in 1979. I taught
mathematics for one year before teaching at the Sacred Heart School in Atherton.

May God bless Father Egon and all the other monks and staff at the Woodside Priory for
all their fine work.
