Reagan Peterson Allen was born on December 19, 1984 in Corpus Christi, Texas. From an early age Reagan displayed a wonderful intellect and a love for anything exciting. Reagan moved to San Antonio with his family in the summer of 1992 and then to Atlanta, Georgia in 1997. After graduating from Roswell High School in Roswell, Georgia he attended Centenary College of Louisiana where was a member of the Centenary College Choir.
Reagan returned to Atlanta to work for an optometrist before moving to Austin, Texas to begin a career in escrow. Reagan worked for Wilson, Sterling, & Russell and then for Fidelity National Title Insurance Company as a corporate trainer, escrow assistant, and an escrow officer. Reagan was well respected by his colleagues for his knowledge of real estate law, working procedures across the country, and the industries’ many computer programs that he taught. Most recently Reagan has been living in College Station with his parents.
Reagan had a love for all things social. He was an avid cook, kickball player, and volunteer for the South By Southwest Festival each year. Reagan had friends from across the globe and was able to keep up with all of them better than most friends do. He loved his friends and would be ready at a moments notice to be there for them. Reagan had an amazing love for music. He loved to listen and sing-a-long to anything. He loved music new and old – from the newest thing on the radio to Hard Candy Christmas.
Reagan is survived by his parents, Forrest “Cleve” Allen, Jr. and Benadine Allen; his brother, sister-in-law and niece, Dr. Sterling and Jennifer Allen and their daughter Hannah; and his grandmother, Lazinka Allen of Corpus Christi, Texas.
