Patrick Michael “Mike” Hagans, 59, of Opelika, died peacefully in his sleep on Saturday, June 4, 2022.
Born in West Point, Ga. on July 17, 1962, Mike was raised in Opelika. He graduated from Opelika High School in 1980 and went on to earn an HVAC associates degree from North Harris College in Houston, Texas. He was an avid reader, enjoyed scuba diving, was a fan of the Grateful Dead band and was an active member of Lakeview Baptist Church in Auburn. But the pride and joy of Mike’s life was his daughter, Prudence, 10. As a single father, Mike poured every bit of his being into Pru. The two loved being together and shared a very special father-daughter bond.
Mike is survived by his daughter, Prudence Sarai; sisters Sandi Hagans Patton (Mike) and Barbara Keel Lunsford (Ken); brothers Rick Hagans (Kim) and Edward Hagans; numerous nieces, nephews, grand nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and his two pups, Rosey Toes and Sugar.
Visitation was on Wednesday, June 8, 2022, from 11 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. CT at Frederick-Dean Funeral Home, followed by a Celebration of Life service at 1 p.m. with Rev. Clay Cardone officiating.
A GoFundMe account has been established to secure educational funding for Prudence. Contributions can be made at www.gofundme.com/manage/schlorship-fund-for-prudence.
Mike will be remembered most as a wonderful father and a sweet soul.
