Mark B. Hagen

Mark Bernard Hagen entered Heaven on Wednesday morning, Feb. 1, 2017. He was 51 years old. On Jan. 12, 1966, he was the last of 11 children born to Bertrand G. and Helen A. (Nelessen) Hagen in Shawano. He attended Lincoln School, Sacred Heart Catholic School and graduated from Shawano High School in 1984. On April 7, 1990, he married Alicia Schabow and together they had a son, Nathan.

To put on paper the tremendous impact Mark had on his family and friends would fill volumes, so it seems almost unjust to condense his life to a few simple lines. It is without exaggeration to say, from the age of 2, he was off running, taking charge of his life. He had his first paying job by the age of 10. He lived life boldly and had a fantastic sense of humor. All who knew him can tell you a “laugh until you cry” experience with him. He worked hard and played hard.
