James Patrick Reagin, age 78, passed away Thursday, February 6, 2020 following a sudden illness.
He was born in Seattle, WA on September 26, 1941, the son of the late Edward James and Marina (Ave) Reagin and lived in Anderson most of his life. He graduated from Ball State University where he was a member of the Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity. On December 19, 1964 he married the former Alice Ardella DeCourcy at St. Mary Catholic Church in Anderson and together they raised their family.
Pat was the owner-operator of House of Reagin Custom Drapery Store and co-owner of Reagin & Shuler Housing. He was a member of St. Ambrose Catholic Church. His love of boat racing led to his membership in the Indiana Outboard Association and his being named the APBA 25 Mod Hydroplane North American Champion. He was also a member of the Lake Tippecanoe Property Owners Asscociation. But mostly he was the consummate family man who loved spending time with his family on Little Tippy.
