Obituary of George Hagel

On Thursday, April 25, 2019, George Hagel, loving husband to Jan Hagel, changed his address from this world to Heaven and into the Arms of Jesus. George was 71 years old.

George was born on October 31, 1947 in Rochester, NY to George Sr. and Agnes (Gerstner) Hagel. After graduating Honeoye High School, NY in 1967, he enlisted in the United States Air Force and served from 1968–1972. George lived in the Grass valley, Nevada City area off and on for over 40 years. He owned and operated two auto restoration businesses many of those years.

George was preceded in death by both his father and mother. He is survived by his wife Jan, Sons Willy and Ben, his step daughters Vickie Baltz, Dina Moyer, Rebecca Kujath, 9 Grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren, his sister, Susan and brother Tom and many nieces and nephews.

As I sat down to compile all George has accomplished, loved, and lived I realized they were too numerous to list here. So come join us, his family and friends, as we honor, celebrate, and remember George on Friday, May 17, 2019, 6:30 pm at Simple Truth Church North Point, located at 455 Sutton Way, Grass Valley, CA 95945.
