Richard Alan Agar, age 56, went to be with his Lord and Savior on July 10, 2021. Alan was born in Sellersville, Pennsylvania and moved with his family to Pensacola in 1977. Alan was proceeded in death by his mother, Doris Agar and his grandparents, Elwood and Dorothy Wentzel, and William Richard, Jr. and Ruth Agar. He is survived by his father, William Richard Agar III of Lynn Haven, Florida, his sister Sharon Nobles of Pensacola, Florida and his daughter Rachel Nicole Agar of Atlanta, Georgia. Alan is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Alan grew up enjoying playing and watching sports which developed his love for the Philadelphia Eagles. One of Alan’s most joyous moments is when the Eagles became Super Bowl champions in 2018. Alan enjoyed riding motorcycles, but it was age 16 Alan discovered his passion for working on cars when he got his first job as an auto detailer at Pensacola Ford. He was promoted to mechanic and worked at dealerships across the southeast including Montgomery and Atlanta but spent the last 30 years working at independent garages in the area.
Alan’s greatest pride and love was his daughter Rachel Nicole. Alan loved to take her to the movies and introduced her to rock music, which they enjoyed listening to together. One of their most memorable times was watching the Philadelphia Eagles play Tampa Bay in person. Alan was so proud of Rachel graduating high school and entering college, which she is still attending. Alan was extremely excited to learn he would be a Pop-Pop himself in September 2021.
Alan became his father’s right-hand man, lending assistance and care for his dad since 2017 as he recovered from surgery. Alan loved to cook and bake for his dad and had several special dishes he made they enjoyed together. Alan loved his father dearly and knew his dad was always there for him, even during difficult and challenging times. Alan attended First Baptist Church of Lynn Haven with his father and committed his life to Christ and was baptized earlier this year.
