I had the great blessing of having the Hagerty family as next door neighbors during my childhood. Bob was one of the shining lights of our sweet little neighborhood---incredibly helpful to anyone who needed his handiness, energy and generosity.
His enormous good spirit made a great & lasting impression on me. He profoundly contributed to my basic sense of the goodness of this world. I'll always be grateful for having known him!

Dear Dede and Family, I'm so very sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad. I remember meeting him during our college years and at your wedding. He was very warm and kind. Thinking of you at this difficult time and hoping that happy memories will be a comfort. Love, "Bean"
