Brother Joseph A. Hagan, 98

OWENSBORO, Ky. – Brother Joseph A. Hagan, 98, went to be with his Lord Jesus, May 3, 2014 at Twin Rivers Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. He was surrounded by family and the many nurses and aids who made his life so much better as he was reunited with those who were awaiting his homecoming. We are sure there is rejoicing in Heaven today.

He was born in Daviess County, Ky., April 15, 1916 to the late Thomas A. Hagan and Lula Francis Taylor Hagan.

He was saved and had his name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life in revival at Rushing Chapel Methodist Church in Sutherland, Ky. He was an active Christian witness, wanting everyone he met to know his Lord and Savior.

Brother Hagan lived in Daviess County most of his life. He worked at Roberts Motor Company as a mechanic early in life. He purchased and farmed “God’s Acres” for many years where he reared his family. Later he owned and operated J & J Contractors (Jesus and Joe) until he felt the call from God to pastor a small church at Pleasant Ridge. He then preached at a store front mission that led to the purchase of Rushing Chapel Methodist Church. The body of believers grew and became Rushing Wind Church of God. After some time the church body felt the need to relocate in Owensboro. At the corner of Jeff Place and 5th Street, an educational building was built. A parsonage was built and later a new sanctuary was erected. Bro. Hagan loved his church and its people. Many were saved and a good work was established.

After retiring at nearly 80 years of age, he helped with a mission on Sweeney Street and did nursing home ministry for many years. Bro. Hagan loved the Lord above all things and served him faithfully.

He had a tender heart for all of God’s creatures. He loved feeding the birds and growing vegetables and flowers. Bro. Hagan was truly a man of God.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 34 years, Alberta Bobbitt Hagan in 1970; his faithful wife of 40 years, Lorie Utz Hagan in January of 2014; and a daughter, Mary Lou and her husband, Herman Jolly.

Bro. Hagan is survived by a son, George Hagan (Sharon) of Owensboro; three daughters, Francis Hall (Ken) of Maryland, Judy Norris (Louis) of Owensboro and Barbara King (Byron) of Utica; 19 grandchildren; 44 great-grandchildren; several great-great-grandchildren; many wonderful friends and church family, whose names could not all be listed. (God bless you)

The family of Bro. Hagan requests the honor of your presence at the celebration of his life which will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 7 at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory. Rev. Larry Bidwell and Bro. Hagan’s grandsons, Scott King and Dwayne Hagan will officiate. Burial will be at Rosehill Cemetery. Visitation will be on Tuesday from 2 to 8 p.m. and on Wednesday after 9 a.m. at the funeral home.

Memorial contributions may be made to World Challenge, Inc., P.O. Box 260 Lindale, Texas 45771 or Gideon’s International, P.O. Box 133 Owensboro, Ky. 42302.
