A former Medfield Police Commissioner and Town Selectman, Reagan founded
LoJack (the antithesis of "hi-jack") and developed its Stolen Vehicle Recovery
System to keep police officers and investigators safe during the pursuit and
recovery of stolen vehicles. In 1979, a U.S. patent was issued to Reagan for
his invention. In 1986, he formed LoJack Corporation and served as the
Company's inaugural Chairman and CEO. Because of the public service focus and
impact of Reagan's innovation, LoJack was granted authority to use an FCC
frequency for the purpose of tracking stolen vehicles.

"LoJack Corporation exists because of Bill's creative thinking, passion and
dedication to keeping law enforcement safe during the tracking and recovery of
stolen vehicles," said Randy J. Ortiz, President and CEO of LoJack
Corporation. "Bill built the foundation that LoJack still stands on today,
including our unique and direct integration with law enforcement, as well as
the invention of a proven technology platform that has led to the recovery of
nearly $4 billion in assets globally."

"Bill's invention has saved the lives of numerous police officers and helped
uncover larger crimes well beyond vehicle theft," said Patrick Clancy, Vice
President of LoJack's internal Law Enforcement Department. "I was fortunate to
work with Bill at the Medfield (Mass.) Police Department before joining
LoJack. The system that Bill created has become an invaluable resource that
allows police officers to recover stolen vehicles with limited risk to them,
their fellow officers and the public. I am incredibly proud and honored to
have worked for decades with the company that Bill founded."

Reagan's commitment to keep law enforcement officers safe in the pursuit and
recovery of stolen vehicles has led to a wireless system that today operates
in 28 states and the District of Columbia, and in more than 30 countries
throughout North America, South America, Europe and Africa. More than 1,800
law enforcement agencies across the U.S. use LoJack Police Tracking Computers
in their fight against auto theft.

Reagan was a four-year varsity hockey star at both the Boston Latin School and
St. Sebastian's School. He graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1957
and served as a Patrol Plane Commander in the U.S. Navy. An involved member of
his community, Reagan was a coach of the Medfield Youth Hockey Program and
supporter of the Medfield High School hockey team.

The loving husband of Genevieve Reagan, Reagan is survived by his four
children and 11 beloved grandchildren. First visitation is scheduled to take
place Sunday, July 7 from 4-8 p.m. at the Roberts-Mitchell Funeral Chapel in
Medfield, Mass. More information can be found at www.robertsmitchell.com.
