James F. Hagerty Jr., resident of Clinton Township and former longtime resident of Fraser, died peacefully January 13, 2021 surrounded by the love of his family. Jim’s struggle is over, and has received his victor's crown and his robe of righteousness. He was 89 years of age.

Jim was born on April 18, 1931 in Detroit, Michigan, son of the late James and Gladys (Copley) Hagerty Sr. Growing up in Fraser, he was a 1949 graduate of Fraser High. During High School, he met Therese Nielsen and fell in love. They married on November 24, 1951 at Zion United Church of Christ of Fraser while he was serving in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. After his honorable service to our country, Jim started a successful career as an Engineer at General Motors Tech Center and General Electric for 28 years. He was given a job opportunity in California as Manager Director of Operations for Teledyne Controls for many years, retiring in 1993. Jim and Therese moved back to Michigan to be with family, especially to spend time with the grandchildren of whom he loved and cherished. Jim liked to keep busy and was active with the Clinton Township Seniors and the St. John Lutheran 55+ Club. He will always be known for his words of wisdom, his great stories and his kindred spirit. He was a family man and a man of integrity; and the compassion and love he extended to others was a blessing to all. He will be greatly missed and his light will continue to glow in our hearts forever.

Jim is the loving and devoted husband of 69 years to Therese; beloved father of Lynn (Eddie) Slanec, Nanette (Daryl) Schroeder and Doug (Karen) Hagerty; cherished grandfather of Kyle (Ashley), Troy (Gloria), Daemian (Jenna), Kali, Anna (Jaden), Jacob, Shannon (Matt), Eddie and Dustin (Tammie); adored great grandfather of Gianna, Jake, Katie, Aurora, Eddie and Corbin; and dear brother of the late Raymond Hollie Hagerty.

Visitation will be held at St. John Lutheran Church of Fraser, Saturday from 10 am until the time of Funeral Service at 11am. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be addressed to St. John Lutheran Church.
