David Edward Hagen was born on March 10, 1938 in McIntosh, Minnesota to parents Joseph and Harriette (Jorgenson) Hagen. He was baptized and confirmed at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in McIntosh and attended McIntosh High School. He entered the United States Army in 1957 and served in Germany as a Medic. He received his honorable discharge in 1959 and returned home to McIntosh.

David was united in marriage to Judy Fay Kaupang on June 21, 1959 in Our Savior’s Lutheran Church. David and Judy lived and raised their family in McIntosh. David worked as a chemical salesman, full-time, and in his spare time, he was a car salesman. He truly enjoyed car sales. It was more than a job for him, it was a hobby and a passion.

He was a life-long member of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church. He enjoyed playing cards, western movies, reading, and loved socializing and visiting, especially over a cup of coffee. Most of all, he loved spending time with his family. They were so important to him. He always had that special twinkle in his eye whenever he saw his grandchildren and great grandchildren. His positive attitude, his great smile, and his many stories will be a lasting memory.

David passed away with his family by his side on Friday, March 20, 2020 at Sanford Medical Center in Fargo, North Dakota at the age of 82 years.
