Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Margaret Harrison Ragan, whom he married on February 14, 1987; daughters, Natisha Ragan of Salisbury, Charlotte Ragan (Brandon) of Landis, Angela Setzer of Salisbury, and Kimberly Rogers (Joshua) of Salisbury; brothers, Barry Wayne Ragan (Ellen) of Salisbury and Michael Ragan of Salisbury; sister, Carolyn Heath (Bill) of Salisbury; special brother-in-law, Bobby Harrison; many nieces and nephews, nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
