Ronald Wilson Reagan (February 6, 1911 - June 05, 2004) was the 40th President of the United States (1981–1989) and the 33rd Governor of California (1967–1975).
The Reagan assassination attempt occurred on Monday, March 30, 1981, just 69 days into the presidency of Ronald Reagan. While leaving a speaking engagement at theWashington Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C., President Reagan and three others were shot and wounded by John Hinckley Jr.. Reagan suffered a punctured lung, but prompt medical attention allowed him to recover quickly.
In 1994, the former president disclosed that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease earlier in the year; he died ten years later at the age of ninety-three, a debility that has been the subject of jokes on Family Guy.
