Wendell R. Hagan
Wendell R. Hagan, 85, of Rapid City and formerly of Midland, S.D., reunited with the Lord on October 25, 2012, at the Ft. Meade VA Medical Center Hospice with his family at his side.
Wendell Rex Hagan was born on October 19, 1927, the son of Pat and Ethyl (Dennis) Hagan at Bunker.
Wendell served in the U.S. Marine Corps during WWII. He was united in marriage to Grace (Stotts) on September 4, 1948. They farmed and ranched in the Midland area for many years.
He is survived by one son, Larry (Rose) Hagan, St. Cloud, Minn., two daughters, Mary (Ducie) Hulce of Rapid City and Peggy (Mike) Martin of North Pole, Alaska; 10 grandchildren, Patrick (Brenda) Hagan, Nick (Malay) Hagan, Terra (Tim) Duda, Kyleen (Shane) Liebig, Britney and Brianna Hulce, Nathan (Kristin) Martin, Heath (Billie Jo) Martin, Ashley and Grace Martin; eight great-grandchildren, Kaycee Darrow, Tianna Duda, Tyler Liebig, Tanya, Telissa, Branden, Macy Bell, and Ashton Martin; one brother, Dick (Darlene) Hagan; and four sisters, Mary Lou Torres, Patty (Ulane) Finn, Phyllis (Robert) Gural, and Shirley (Don) Reed.
Wendell was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Grace; a son-in-law, Terry Hulce; a brother, Verlyn; and a sister, Diane Madsen.
Wendell’s request was to not have a funeral service, just to remember our time together, the love laughter, and sharing. If you choose to do something in my memory, show someone, preferably a child, some extra kindness.
Graveside services were held October 29, 2012, at the Midland Cemetery with Lyle Dennis officiating.
Military honors were provided by the Midland American Legion.
