Published in the Star-Telegram on 1/20/2009 (in part):

"Mr. Ragsdale was a World War II veteran, serving in the Army Air Corps as a crew chief, flight engineer and instructor in the B-24 Liberator bomber.

"He spent his professional career in the commercial-residential lighting industry. Curly built, managed and retired from Cummings Lighting Center on the West Freeway in Fort Worth. He won numerous local and regional awards for lighting competitions and was named Lighting Person of the Year in 1980. He also received the American Home Lighting Institute's prestigious Ted Cox Award for his long and distinguished career and service to the lighting industry.

"Mr. Ragsdale was a charter member of Grace Baptist Church in Fort Worth where he served as Sunday school superintendent, deacon, church trustee and choir member. The family would like to extend a special thanks to the loving caregivers at the Claire Bridge Cottage in Richland Hills and Seasons Hospice.

"Survivors: Wife of 63 years, Frances Ann Ragsdale; ... (***Names of the living have been omitted per Find A Grave rules***); nine grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and many friends and acquaintances."
