Reagan Meredith Marshall II passed away Sunday, April 7, 2019, at the age of 80.
Reagan was born August 25, 1938, to Dorothy Elizabeth (Greenwood) and Dr. Reagan Meredith Marshall Sr. His father was a general surgeon while his mother took care of the home and family. Growing up as a military kid on Air Force bases Reagan found his lifelong love of airplanes and by the age of 15 received his pilot's license. After graduating from San Jacinto High School and attending Texas Tech, he enlisted in the Air Force National Guard. For the next 51 years, Reagan turned his love of flying into both a career and a hobby. This love for flying also led him to meet the love of his life. Reagan and Sam married on July 23, 1972, and for 35 years raised four children, Stacey Leigh Marshall, Reagan Meredith Marshall III, Brent Allen Marshall, and Elizabeth Marshall Hill. As Reagan's family grew and began to include grandkids, he would now forever be known by his favorite name, "Pops!" Pop's family was the most important part of his life and there was nothing more special to him than his family all together at The Bay House.
Reagan will be best remembered as a true gentleman with a fun loving approach to life. He was honest, hardworking and most of all kind. His family will best remember him for his need to give directions, telling jokes, reminding them of his struggles as a paperboy with a route that somehow was all uphill in Houston and mostly his love for them.
Reagan was a proud Mason of the 32nd Degree with Delange Lodge in Houston, part of Scottish Rite, Yorkshire Rite, Shriners, and ROJ.
Reagan leaves behind his daughter Stacey Leigh Marshall of Alvin, Texas, his son Reagan Meredith Marshall III and his wife Mary of Freeport, Texas, his son Brent Allen Marshall and his wife Heather of Brazoria, Texas, his daughter Elizabeth Marshall Hill and her husband Joshua of Caldwell, his grandchildren Reagan Meredith Marshall IV of Freeport, Texas, Ty Allen Marshall and Lauren Ashley Marshall of Brazoria, Texas, Katheryne Elizabeth Hill and Kameryn Allen Hill of Caldwell, his girlfriend Margaret Jakubik of Snook, and many treasured friends. He was preceded in death by his wife beloved wife Sam and by his loving Grandma Sarah.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 10 AM on Saturday, April 13, 2019, at Hillier Funeral Home of College Station, with a reception following the service at Pebble Creek Country Club.
