In Memory

Tim Egley

Timothy Egley
                - 2018

We are sad to report that Tim Egley, Alyeska retiree and current contract employee, passed away last Friday. Tim was working at the Poker Flat Research Range in Chatanika with Joel Lindsey in 1977 when he got a call to come work for Alyeska. He started as Maintenance Supervisor at PS05 and then a few years later became the Maintenance Supervisor at PS08. When they established a SCADA group for the pipeline, he became the supervisor opposite Morgan Henrie. He remained in that position until his retirement in October 2006.

Tim continued working on special TAPS projects every summer after retirement, including removing communication systems from ramped down stations and installing the new 800 watt Ormats. He went to work with Chugach Alaska Services in January 2015 and continued with them until his death.

Tim was a Vietnam veteran with the U.S. Marine Corps. He was a pilot and instructor. When he wasn’t working for Alyeska he remodeled and sold homes. He rode his bicycle daily and was always had a smile on his face. Tim believed if it was worth doing, it was worth doing right.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, October 26, at 9786 E. Sleepy Hollow Trail in Gold Canyon, AZ. Condolences can be sent to Judy Egley at 10400 E. Breathless Drive, Gold Canyon, AZ 85118.

I would say Egley, Egley.......Egley while shaking my head.   He would chuckle and say Howard, Howard, Howard.

This was our typical greeting.  It was always a good feeling to see Tim.  He offered to take me in to Volkmar Lake in his 'Lake' but, it never worked out.

In January 1977 Jimmy Dearmore, Howdy Brown, Tim Egley and myself were in the second tech training class in Anchorage. Tim and I shared a tent during the -20 degrees Hatcher Pass Arctic Survival Training.  I remembered he was a Marine but, didn't realize he was a Viet Nam Vet.

Oh Tim you left too soon.

Much condolences to Judy and the family.

So sorry to hear about Tim. He really was pretty awesome. I remember when he and Rick Signor worked as SPOCs on one of Bob Adkin's projects (B023 I think). Bob could never get anyone's name right and kept calling them Egnor and Sigly. Tim, you were one smart cookie.... RIP

I'm so sad for you Judy to lose a good man like Tim. You guys should have had a lot more time left to play. I've known Tim for most of the time he worked for Alyeska and never seen him lose his cool. We had good times working together and he loved flying. He was my boss for awhile at Pump Eight and went on to tackle some other project. I'm going to miss him and take care Judy.
