June 19, 1928 — August 10, 2021

Douglas Dean Hagemann passed away peacefully on August 10, 2021, at his home in Julesburg, CO. He was born June 19, 1928, to George and Frances (Gentert) Hagemann on the family farm, the youngest of six children. He was baptized in the Lutheran church on July 15, 1928, confirmed at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Julesburg, July 15, 1941, and continued as a lifelong member of St. Paul's Lutheran.

District 6-grade school south of Julesburg was located at the end of their quarter-mile-long driveway where he walked to complete elementary school. After graduating from Julesburg High School in 1945, he served in the Army as a construction and demolition specialist between September 1951 and June 1953, having been deployed to Korea during the Korean Conflict.

When returning to Colorado, he and Lois Gratopp were married at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Julesburg on November 22, 1953.
