Robert Hagaman, Jr. Obituary

Robert “Sonny” Lee Hagaman, Jr., age 68, of Boone, passed away Friday, February 9, 2024. He was a native of Watauga County and the son of the late Robert Lee Hagaman, Sr. and Anna Lee Shepherd Hagaman.

He retired from Appalachian State University where he worked as a small engine mechanic and in auto body repair for over 40 years.

Sonny preached for many years and was ordained as a minister in 2002. He then preached at Liberty Baptist Church in Meat Camp for 22 years and at Rich Mountain Baptist Church on Howard’s Creek for 10 years simultaneously.

Sonny loved his wife, children, and grandchildren dearly. His grandchildren were his world; there is nothing that he wouldn’t do for them. He loved both of his church families very much. But, most of all, he loved Jesus.

Besides his family, Sonny has always had a passion for classic cars. He thoroughly enjoyed going to car shows, especially the Rod Run in Pigeon Forge, TN. He owned several classic cars over the years and enjoyed tinkering on them.

In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by his sisters, Becky Townsend and Roberta Tester.

He is survived by his loving wife of 48 years, Rebecca Hagaman; two sons, John Hagaman and wife Carrie of Boone, and Michael Hagaman and wife Whitney of Fleetwood; five granddaughters, Elizabeth Hagaman, Madeline Hagaman, Lillian Hagaman all of Boone, Emma Hagaman and Anna Hagaman of Fleetwood; one grandson, Noah Hagaman of Fleetwood; two sisters, Janis McGuire and husband Ben of Trade, TN., Lee Ella Danner of Ft. Pierce, FL; mother-in-law, Mary Bell Main of Boone. Numerous nieces and nephews also survive.

Funeral services will be conducted Thursday, February 15, 2024 at 2:00 p.m. in the Austin & Barnes Funeral Home Chapel. Burial will follow in the Pleasant Valley Community Church Cemetery.

The family will receive friends Thursday from 12:00 until 2:00 p.m. in Austin & Barnes Funeral Home.
