  2. Time has past but the memories of Jerry have not. Yes to the Fedora, the button down starched shirts, and the crackers at lunch. A couple of other memories for me includes his dedication to family and his strong work ethic. My condolences to the family of Mr. Jerry Hageman.

  3. I first want to say that I am not good at this, but this is very important to me.
    Seeing this truly breaks my heart. Jerry (AKA Heggy) was a co-worker for many years at Seaman Corporation but more than that he was a GREAT person that I will ALWAYS call MY FRIEND. My condolences to the family, your father was a great man that loved all of you more than anything.

    Heaven gained a great one!!! Until we see each other again my friend!!!

  7. Danny (i.e Hago), sincere condolences to the whole family. It has hard for me to remember when I didnt’t see “Mr. Hagerman” walking around at all of our baseball games. Regardless of the outcome, he always took the time to offer kind words.
    In sympathy,
    JJ, Marcie, & Brooke Jordan

  8. My condolences to Jerry’s family. He was such a sweet, thoughtful man. I cherish the small chats we had through the years, both at Seaman Corp or just running into each other shopping for groceries. He expressed his respect for Mr Seaman and for what all the Seaman family did for their employees. He adored his grandchildren and was dedicated to helping his wife following his retirement. He will be truly missed.

  12. I worked with Heggy for years until I went to first shift. He truly was a great worker and fun to work with. He sometimes offered me his peanut butter crackers and banana (which he always brought for lunch!) He had a good sense-of-humor and was a good and decent man, who I will surely miss.
