On October 18, 2012, Patrick (Pat) Hardy Reagan died in Anson, Texas at the age of 84. An only child, Pat was born on December 13, 1927 in Tocopilla, Chile, South America to Paul Hallam and Elizabeth Hardy Reagan. In 1945, Pat graduated from Staunton Military Academy and went on to serve his country in both the Army and Air Force being honorably discharged from the US Army in 1947 and the US Air Force in 1951. Between his two periods of military service he attended Yale University and graduated with a BA in English in 1950. Following his discharge from the Air Force he attended the University of Texas Law School and passed the Texas State Bar in the fall of 1953. He married Joyce Elaine Pierce in the summer of 1953 and began a long and gratifying 40-year career as a trust officer with Frost National Bank in San Antonio, retiring in the spring of 1993. Pat and Joyce were married for 56 years. He spent much of his retirement consulting on matters of trust law, enjoying his grandchildren, traveling all over the world with Joyce, supporting the arts and feeding his voracious appetite for reading books. Pat is survived by two children, his son, Patrick Hardy Reagan, Jr. of the Woodlands, Texas and his daughter, Ann Elizabeth Manners of Anson, Texas. Surviving grandchildren include Patrick and Grace Reagan, son and daughter of Patrick, Jr. and his wife, Lia along with John and Elaine Kerr, son and daughter of Ann, wife to Buddy Manners. Pat's life was full of close friendships including John Bakke and Larry Cooper. His parents and his wife predeceased Pat, with Joyce passing in 2009. Many will miss Pat, as he lived life with integrity and humility always mixed with a little humor. A memorial service will be held at St. Luke's Episcopal Church on Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. The family asks that donations honoring Pat be made to the Hill Country Youth Ranch, Box 67, Ingram, Texas 78025.
