Gary and I will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers. What a sweet man Uncle Paul was. I didn't know Uncle Paul real well but I have heard many stories about basketball and baseball and shooting pool. I will miss seeing him on his tractor cutting the grass. Always so friendly. Jeff and Lori, my deepest sympathy for this great loss. God has another beautiful Angel in heaven.

To all the Hagerichs, so very sorry for the loss of Uncle Paul, he will be missed dearly. I will truly miss his scortching, calling my grandma Ole shoe polish head. And having a beer in the backyard after the family ball games. Please know you all are in my thoughts & prayers. Love, Kim

Jeff and rest of Pauls family, please accept my condolences. Paul and Jeff worked on all my vehicles. Many times saying my cars were experiments for future people who were coming in with same models. Always enjoyed having a beer down at the fire club. Prayers to all.
