CHARLES "CHARLIE" HAROLD HAGEMAN, 72, of Cleveland, Ohio, passed away on the morning of September 1, 2018, surrounded by his family at his home. He is survived by his devoted wife of over 49 years and college sweetheart, Mary Lee. Charles had two loving daughters, Heidi (Tre Peckat) and Mary Kate; grandson "Baby Charlie"; beloved sisters, Marilyn (Frank) Barber and Linda (Don) Bernhart; as well as cherished nieces and nephews, spouses and their children. A product of Cuyahoga Falls City School District, Charlie graduated from Kent State University and was a member of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity. After graduation, he served as an officer in the United States Air Force before he settled in Cleveland with his wife. He spent 33 loyal years of his career at the Forging Industry Association, nearly half of which he served as Executive Vice President until his retirement in 2010. Charlie was passionate about gardening and cooking, hosting Thanksgiving feasts at his home for over 35 years, as well as family picnics and softball games. He always hoped existing memories would suffice without formal ceremony. As such, immediate plans for funeral services have yet to be determined. Charlie's humor, kindness and generosity will be carried on by the many people whose lives he touched. In lieu of flowers, he asked that any private donations should be directed to the Hospice of Western Reserve.
