|Let the memory of Irvin be with us forever|
Irvin Anthony Hagedorn was born on March 10, 1939 to Casper and Clara (Kreikemeier) Hagedorn on the family farm in Cuming County. He attended grade school at St. Boniface Catholic School at Monterey, graduated from Guardian Angels in West Point in 1957 and served in the Army Reserve. On January 16, 1960, Irvin married Mary Jean Strehle at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Irvin worked at Prinz and Wieler Grain and Feed before working at Patterson Dairy and retiring from Roberts Dairy after 45 years.
Irvin was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 3rd Degree Knights of Columbus, West Point Sportsman Club, Eagles Club, and Good Life Club. He often could be found golfing at Indian Trails Country Club, fishing, and playing cards. Irvin’s favorite card game was '31.' He loved polka music, and in his early years, coached baseball. In his later years, he found enjoyment in his three cats: Smokey, Princess, and Bandit.
