Joseph Mcclaran Hagel ’49

Published in June 9, 1999, issue

Joe Hagel of Cheshire, Conn., died Oct. 28, 1994, following a heart attack.

Joe prepared at Baltimore Friends School. Prior to college, Joe served in the Navy from June 1945 to Aug. 1946, with the rank of EM3c. At Princeton, he majored in electrical engineering, was on the j.v. lacrosse and freshman wrestling teams, and joined Campus Club.

Following graduation he became an engineer with the Thermoid Co. in Trenton, then joined the Diehl Manufacturing Co. in Somerville and lived in Cranford, N.J. He married Georgina "Ini" Hernandez, and their three daughters are Beatrice, Juliana, and Josette.

By our 25th reunion they had moved to Cheshire, Conn., and Joe became sales manager of Precision Power for Tech Systems Corp. in Thomaston, Conn., a position he held for the balance of his career.

Our hearts go out to his wife and daughters at the death of this beloved, hardworking man.
