He received a master’s degree in computer science from Iowa State University in 1974 and a master’s degree in business administration from Philadelphia’s Temple University in 1985.

He was an officer in the Navy from 1967 to 1975. From 1973 to 1975, he taught naval science at Iowa State. He served in the Naval Reserve until 1997, retiring as a captain.

Mr. Egnotovich was a past national director of the National Contract Management Association and a member of the corporate advisory board of the Project Management Institute. His other memberships included the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association, the International Council on Systems Engineering and Beta Gamma Sigma, a business honor society.

His first marriage, to Stephanie Dobrzynski, ended in divorce.
