Reginald "Reggie" Gilliam

June 11, 1931 — April 13, 2024

Gettysburg, PA

Reginald "Reggie" Gilliam, 92, of Gettysburg, died on April 13, 2024, at Frederick Health Hospital. Born on June 11, 1931, in El Paso, TX he was the son of the late Reginald Prentiss and Frances Rebecca Stone Gilliam.

To say that Reginald "Reggie" Gilliam made a lasting deep impression on all he loved would be an understatement.  His love for life and being outdoors running 10K races, biking across Maryland, skiing with the fun loving Fagowee ski club and taking many a long trip in the RV with wife Barbara were things of legend. He served in the U.S. Air Force form 1949-1950.

Reggie retired as Director of the Broadcasting & Recording Department, IBEW in the '90's.  He loved what he did for a living negotiating contracts for better working conditions for the rank and file.  He was passionate about it.  When he retired... his "friends" from the other side of the table jokingly said.. "we're here at your retirement party to make sure you REALLY ARE retiring!" He could be a tough cookie, but he knew how to pick his battles. Reggie is predeceased by his wife Barbara.

Reggie leaves his adult children Gordon Gilliam, Dirk Gilliam, Laura Dwyer and Lisa Dwyer and all of his grandchildren with hearts full of inspiration to live life to its fullest, and to always do your best.

A joint interment of Barbara and Reggie will be held at 1:30 PM on Saturday, August 3, at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, 515 S. Market St., Frederick, MD 21701, (next to the Mausoleum). 

For those wishing to do so, please feel free to donate to the Parkinson's Foundation in his honor.
