Ronald Wilson Reagan

On this day, June 5, 2004, our 40th President passed away at his home in Bel Air.
Born February 6, 1911 in Tampico, Illinois, Reagan wore many hats over the course of his 93 year life. He served as both an enlisted soldier and commissioned officer in the US Army, was a television and film actor, President of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) (1947-1952 & 1959), Governor of the State of California (1967-1975) and the 40th President of the United States (1981-1989).

While the fall of communism may serve as his most potent legacy, he is survived by wife Nancy and three grown children. Many streets, buildings, schools and organizations bear this great man’s name including the final Nimitz-class nuclear aircraft carrier, USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76).
