    I am unable to attend the funeral. However my I take this opportunity to express how great a teacher he was to me. Probably the biggest influence on my school life, certainly the most enjoyable.

    i was lucky enough to be in his first class at Haslington, he was an inspiration to myself and the whole class adored him. He was strict but fun and brilliant with maths,he brought us all on to a much better standard. So many happy memories of the school year I had with him. My condolences to you and your family a sad loss.

    Mr Hagan was a really lovely “gentleman” in the true sense of the word. I was also in the first class that he taught at Haslington Primary School and enjoyed every minute of it. He pushed us to do our very best and although there were times when he had to be firm, he was always fair. He was a lovely lovely man who was clearly very proud of his children. We were often told little tales about things that went on in the Hagan household. You must all miss him very much. Please accept my sincere condolences
