Alan Hagemeister

January 10, 1939 - September 13, 2017


Alan Roger Hagemeister died peacefully in his home on September 13, 2017 in Argusville, North Dakota at the age of 78.

Alan was born on January 10, 1939 in Fargo, ND to Maurice and Ella (Hove) Hagemeister. He graduated from Argusville High School in 1957. He married Deanna, his high school sweetheart in September 6, 1964. They moved to Fargo for a short time before settling in Argusville. Alan worked in construction as a heavy equipment operator from 1957-72 and again from 1992-2017. From 1972-1992 he followed his passion when he farmed with his father, Maurice. His nieces and nephews remember him as a fun and generous uncle who supported them in their endeavors. An unassuming prankster, you had stay on your toes in his presence.

Alan enjoyed sports whether he was playing or watching from the stands. He played basketball and softball in his youth and was a fan of the F-M Redhawks, NDSU Football, and Northern Cass sports teams. He enjoyed travelling and having different experiences, often saying, “if you don’t experience it, it’s your own fault.” Another unique experience Alan had was driving a team of draft horses with his father in parades around the region. He was also an avid card player.

Alan was an active and dedicated member of the Eagles Club, Lions Club, International Union of Operating Engineers Local 49, Argusville Fire Department. Alan often volunteered at the Argusville Community Center and was one of the main pancake makers at their annual Pancake Feed. He was also a member of the Argusville United Church of Christ and 4-H Member in the Rush River Livestock Club.
Alan is survived by his siblings, Wayne (Elizabeth) Hagemeister of Argusville, Lois Faye Hagemeister of Fargo, Daniel (Shirley) Hagemeister of Center, ND; nephews and nieces Paul Hagemeister of Argusville, Beth Hagemeister of Argusville, Danielle (Paul) Wetzstein of Bismarck, ND, Ellen (David) Nowatzki of Carrington, ND, Jason (Jena) Hagemeister of Mandan, ND, Eric (Kara) Hagemeister of Fargo, Travis (Marla) Hagemeister of Mandan.

  3. Thurin and Hazel Ramsey says:

    Alan once told us about eating his first fried shrimp. He was riding around with some guys and they stopped at a drive-in restaurant. He noticed “Shrimp” on the menu and asked, “What are Shrimp?” The guys told him they were good and that he’d like them. So he ordered fried shrimp, and when he had eaten about half of the order; one of the guys in the front seat said, “Hey Al do you like the shrimp?” He said, “they’re pretty good but the tails sure are tough!” We always think of Alan when we have fried shrimp. That was our brother-in-law, Alan; a good guy and always a pleasure to spend time with.

    OH how I will miss Alan. He was always my older cousin, who knew everything. I always looked up to him for answers. He was a kind and very loving person, that was soft spoken with a heart of gold. May God bless all that knew him. luv Gerry and Marlys (Hoff) Farver

    I just happened to see the news of Alan. I know he was a fixture around Argusville and will be missed. May he rest in peace. I’d like to send best wishes to the Hagemeister family.

    We will miss visiting with you Al! You always had a smile on your face and a kind word to share!

  9. Dennis & Judy Pelster says:

    The crooked smile..the sense of humor..the kindness..and even the meals always “coming out even”!!

    You will be missed but no good-byes (Deanna told us long ago that you both hated them).

    It brings peace and a little joy to know you are once again, Alan & Deanna.

    We loved you. Dennis & Judy (Gullicks) Pelster
