Glenn T Reagan Jr. went to join his Heavenly Father on May 13, 2024. He was born on July 19, 1929, in Petrolia, Texas to parents Glenn Thomas Reagan Sr. & Eula Mae (Christie). Glenn moved to Oklahoma City while very young and has lived in the city for the rest of his life. The family grew to include three brothers, James, Charles, & Eddie and one sister, Dorothy. Glenn graduated from Capitol Hill High School in 1947, with honors. After high school graduation, Glenn joined the Navy ROTC and shortly after enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, where he served his country in Korea, until he received an honorable discharge in 1954. While in Korea, Glenn and his first wife Sugar had their only child, Tracy Reagan. He also gained a beautiful foster daughter through life, Eva Jo, whom he loved and cared for from the moment their lives touched. Glenn was a graduate of Oklahoma City University. He attained a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering and a second degree in electronic engineering. He was dedicated to the Boy Scouts of America, as a Scout leader, and was active in the Toastmasters organization. He was employed by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation. He was a traffic design engineer for over thirty years. After he retired, he later worked as a courier for several attorneys’ offices, the last of which was Dawkins & Gowens Law Firm. In 1984 he met and fell in love with Patricia Pate, his life partner until she passed in 2011. Glenn was active in both her children's lives, Melissa and Mike Pate, for every moment he had them in his life. He was active in the SCCA and was a race Pitmaster. He enjoyed collecting pocketknives, country and bluegrass music, art, and landscape photography. He was also a history buff and loved anything associated with Wars and Battle. He was an avid traveler, and truly loved going to Disney World and the Epcot Center. He loved the theater, and attending plays at the Lyric, Jewel Box, and Civic Center. Of all the things that were important to Glenn, his family and friends topped the list. He always came back with a happy heart after visiting with his son Tracy and his wife Debbie. He truly loved spending time with his brothers Charlie and Eddie, spending each morning with them for coffee. He treasured his time with his grandchildren Karri, Krystal, Ngan, Shelby, and Tori and their children and families. He cherished time spent with his friends. One thing about Glenn was that he was excellent at whatever relationship he had with each person. He was a wonderful partner, a great father, a treasured brother, a loved grandfather, and the best friend to many of us. Anyone who had the pleasure of having him in their lives was blessed to be a piece of his full life.


He was preceded in death by his mother, Eula Mae Reagan, father, Glenn T Reagan Sr., Sister Dorothy Reagan, Brother James R. Reagan.


He is survived by his son and children, Tracy Glenn Reagan and his wife Debbie, Eva Jo Sparks, Melissa Pate, Michael Pate; Brothers, Charles Reagan, and Eddie Downs; Grandchildren, Krystal Crider, Karri Hayhurst, Ngan Tra, Tori Swenson-Mosca, Shelby Swenson, and numerous great grandchildren, nieces, and nephews
