Michael D. Hagerty

February 13, 1942 — November 27, 2023

Kilkenny

Michael Denis Hagerty, age 81, of Kilkenny, MN passed away after a long courageous battle with Parkinson’s Disease on Monday, November 27, 2023 at New Perspective Senior Living.

Michael Denis, the eldest child of Thomas and Veronica (O’Brien) Hagerty, was born on February 13, 1942 in Faribault, MN. Michael grew up on the family farm in Kilkenny and graduated from Bethlehem Academy with the Class of 1960. He took over the farm following his father’s death when he was 17 years old. He worked for years as a dairy farmer. During that time, he met his beloved wife of 58 years, Angela Rule, when his sister Nancy introduced him to her roommate in Rochester, and she decided he was a definite upgrade on roommates! They married on April, 24, 1965 in Mayfield, Kentucky. Following his time as a dairy farmer, Michael worked as a commercial fisherman, construction worker, at Jerome Foods, and for Copperfield Chimney. He was an avid fisherman and sports enthusiast. He enjoyed traveling the country to see his family and gifted them all with his love of nature.

Michael is survived by his wife of 58 years, Angela Hagerty; children, Thomas Hagerty, Linda Simmons, Carol Hagerty, Brian (Melanie) Hagerty, Kathleen (Greg) Larson, and Mary Anne Hagerty; grandchildren, Patrick and Matthew Simmons, Edward, Joseph, and Maeve Hagerty, and Owen and Eamon Larson; sisters, Mary Jo Galvin and Marjean (Bob) Hagerty Lundquist; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Robert Hagerty; and sister, Nancy Hagerty Fredrickson.
