Thank you Swampy, but Focus Magic should take the lion's share of the credit. Getting the motion blur angle and pixel shift took a bit of fiddling with.
I also left the background out of focus to try and accentuate the subject.

Well, I can see that if you are doing restoration or retouching that, Focus Magic would be a great tool to have in the tool box.

Re: Need help fixing this blurred/double image

Very difficult photo and sorry about your brother.

I decided that I would take it a different way then sharpening. I started out with Exposure ADJ and masked a lot until even.

I then used the patch tool to clean, and liquify to reduce the double image. Next, I used some D&B, painting with colors, and copying certain parts (eyes) in new layers.

Lastly, I Corrected Brightness & Contrast, levels (blacks), and hue/sat.

Just a diffrent way to think about things... its a non-sharpen sharpen...

Hope this helps,

Thanks for all your help and efforts guys. I really appreciate it. I was able to get a decent fix using Focus Magic and playing with the settings until I found an acceptable look. Here's what I came up with.
