Bubba, throughout the years from your first breath till the last day I looked upon your beautiful face and felt the love of your magnificent soul, I have seen the face of God and felt his presence in your light. I have so many beautiful memories of you throughout the 29 short years that were so great because they were with you. I was walking with Axel, who still looks for you whenever someone says your name, no longer a puppy, but a 130 lb boisterous teenager, if you will. I thought of the Boobie trap you made to keep "EB" safe, our Easter Bunny that Ian brought home from Albertson's one year when you were 6 and Ian was 5. Crude as it was, it worked. I remember your bold courage at stomping the mormon crickets that I was so afraid of. You told Ian and I "you guys spot em and I'll stomp them, which went well until they surrounded you by the hundreds, then you yelled "each man for themselves - run!" That was the same summer... Every day with you kids was guaranteed to hold never a dull moment. I read my birthday card you gave me last year, bless your heart. It read "Mom there were days that running away from home seemed like a good idea, but you never did. Then you wrote Mom, Thank you for always being there for us kids no matter what. Thank you for teaching us right from wrong, thank you for being patient, understanding, caring supportive and loving us. I couldn't have been me if you hadn't been you, I couldn't have done it without your love. Thank you son, for being you.
My sweet Bobby, Last July was the best time I've had since you boys grew up, and that was because of you. I miss you more each day. I loved you coming home for dinner after work, I loved sharing your company, your thoughts on the days events. Everyone says it gets easier with time. They are so wrong. I don't even know if it's possible to find a place to put this loss, I miss YOU.....
Bobby was one of the best friends you could ask for and i will never forget my friend
Bobby, you made the sun shine a little brighter. As a little cousin who didn't get to know you that well, I heard of your successes and motives me to be better. Love you cousin you are dearly missed

Bobby, Your Birthday is just a couple weeks away. I miss you with all my heart and soul. You made my life brighter the first time I held you in my arms and every day thereafter. I have many beautiful memories of moments we shared. My life was better because of you. Your positive attitude and sincerity, your open mindedness, your huge heart and your unwavering sense of right from wrong. You were my first born, a great big brother, my confidant and my friend, I was proud to call you "son". My heart would fill when I heard you say “mom”. You are missed by many, but none no one misses you more than I do, you were the glue that made us all stick. I feel your warmth near me often, sometimes I think you'll be home for dinner. Thank you for being you, thank you for caring for others, God Bless you and keep you till we meet again, All my love Always, Mom.
I am so sorry for your loss of Bobby. I am happy he did so well during his short life. My thoughts & prayers are with your family. Sincerely, Ann
My Dear Bobby,
I will always love you like a son.I will nerver forget YOU.Isabelle Forsbach from France
I cannot believe you're gone! I just spoke with you a few weeks ago, even if it was on Facebook, it was always nice hearing from you! I'll never forget growing up with you & your family. You will forever be missed. RIP Bobby. Love you always!
Our world has lost a very bright light. One that lit a way forward for so many to follow.
I am still in shock on how this could happen. What force takes out our greatest warriors in the heat of the battle when the odds are moving against us? How does removing such an unbounded source of love, solace and inspiration serve the probable survival success of human integrity?
My deepest condolences to his family, as I cannot imagine the level of grief and pain you endure with this loss.
While my encounters were brief, the pain of his loss is a heavy weight on my heart.
There is no getting over a loss like this. Maybe time softens the blow a little bit each day or you find a way for the message this man so graciously brought to us to continue on.
I will kindle the flame Bobby Hager lit in me, to keep it going, in honor of his passionate service to truth and justice.
Thank you Bobby for inspiring me to stand up for what is right and go the distance - for our community, our country, our future, and those still afraid.
Thank you Bobby for being an example of light, love, and determination to shine a way forward with hope for harmony in all things.
You are now a brave heart legend in a culture lost and fallen. No one can replace your gifts, only seek to stand stronger for the battle ahead in your honor. God's speed - Bobby.
It is such a sad thing to hear. I briefly knew Bobby. I work at the bank and he was always in good spirit. My deepest condolences to the family. His light is like a star- it won't burn out; it will keep shining for time to come.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family through this heartbreaking time. There's nothing I can say that will ease your pain but I just wanted you to know I am thinking of you. My deepest condolences.
My deepest sympathy to your family at this time. Bobby was a very bright spirit... funny, smart, high energy. He always made me smile and always gave me hugs when he saw me... The world is a dimmer place without his presence.
I had lost my best friend of 34 years in 2010, and when I met Bobby I felt that I had made a friend for years to come. I wish that I could say that I knew Bobby as well as others have known this young man, but in the brief time I did know him he will forever have a positive impact in my life. I thank you Bobby for being you and in such a brief time you made a positive impact in my life. My sincere emotions go to the family and all those whose life Bobby was a major part of. I thank you for giving me the opportunity of meeting such a wonderful person.
I've found it almost impossible to write this and actually acknowledge that Bobby is gone. We just had lunch together a few weeks ago. Bobby was doing the best I had ever seen him. Bobby was a passionate, brilliant young man who was always ready to step into the ring and fight for the little guy. Bobby was one of the most loyal friends I've ever had. It was always nice knowing that he had my back no matter what. Bobby, I am so proud of you and all the things you accomplished in your short time here. You made an impact in my life and the lives of all those who knew you that will last forever. I don't know what happened the day you died -- maybe I'll never know. Regardless, I know you were happy and in a good place. I know on that day the world lost an intelligent, motivated, loyal person, and I lost an incredible friend. Rest in peace buddy.
Bobby showed so much spirit during his life – such passion and amazing energy, tremendous intelligence, and a wonderful sense of humor. The family's loss of Bobby, so soon after the loss of his beloved sister Chantal, truly seems too much to bear. Our hearts go out to his parents and step-parents, and to his brothers. Our condolences also to all those who held Bobby dear in their lives.
We're so sorry for your sudden loss of Bobby. Please be assured that God will help you cope with the heavy weight of your loss. Psalm 68:19 Blessed be Almighty God, who daily carries the load for us.
Well you sure know how to get a girls attention. I'm here Bobby…
There are no words, or emotions, that can describe what or how I am feeling. I never thought your death would be the reason that brought our paths back together. Nevertheless, here we are, only this time… it is my turn to carry the broken heart.
Thank you for reaching out to me when Chantal passed, I know that sounds strange but, you and I knew the importance. Had you not, we may never have had the opportunity to finally answer so many of our unanswered questions. We laughed, we cried, and we forgave.
There is a saying about relationships:
People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. Some come and go quickly and then there are those who stay awhile and leave footprints on your heart, and we are never ever the same.
We shared a special kind of love Bobby, a love that will never be forgotten.
I will miss you, always.
We are so very sorry. Bobby was a great young man with a lot of promise. God bless your family in your sorrow.
With our sincere sympathy, Danny and Judy Lamb
Bobby,I will miss your funny letters, and your wickedly funny perspective on all subjects. I'll never forget the first time we met and you jumped of the second story railing to catch up with me. The world has lost the chance to see just how much difference you would have made. Strong beliefs that were worth fighting for. I thank God that he gave me the chance to know you. The world is a better place, because you made it that way. Rest peacefully, My dear friend.....Lisa
Do not fear death so much but rather the inadequate life." Bertolt Brecht

Bobby scared me one day when he was dressed for court and I failed to recognize him in his suit since I had become accustomed to his typical casual demeanor and good nature. I thought to myself, "What a Powerful Man, I would not want to stand in his path". I will always remember him for his forthright communication. What a loss.
I will never forget how kind you were to my children and i and how you used to seek my insight on things...it was me in turn learning from you and what you can accomplish if you set your mind to it. I will never forget that and always be reminded when i come to a crossroads. I still hear that short cackle of a laugh echoing through my ears.. and people walking by us trying to figure out how we could possibly be understanding each other both talking at the same time and trying to one up each other by getting louder than the other...we knew though. Thank you for being a good pal Bobby, gonna miss you buddy
Bobby was such a bright, intelligent man and was headed for the stars. You will be missed greatly..
During the all too brief period of time we worked together, I came away from every encounter I had with Bobby both encouraged and energized . . . this was a blessings Bobby unselfishly imparted to others.
Bobby, I still can't believe you're gone. I remember meeting you for the first time back in college after my husband introduced me to you and I was like 'wow, he's hilarious!' You amazed me with how smart you were and I was thinking this guy should be attending Harvard or something! Your kindness, witty sense of humor and sarcarsm that was always on que, will be greatly missed. Rest in peace with your sister now my friend.
Bobby's spirit of enthusiasm for many things will never be forgotten.
You sir were one of my best friends growing up i miss bro, dont worry i will do my best to look after your family no matter how far the distance. Much love brother.
Went to law school with Bobby and you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who didn't like him. I found him to be thoughtful, friendly, and a pleasure to be around. He will be sorely missed.
Bobby was extremely smart and very dedicated to his clients. He will be deeply missed. My heartfelt condolences to everyone...
You were the most caring man I have ever known. I wish you could do for yourself even just a quarter of what you did for others. You will always be in my heart.

Bobby was a very special man. He cared deeply for others and had a wonderful sense of humor. He will be truly missed. From my family to yours, we send our heartfelt condolences.
I had the pleasure of meeting Bobby only a few times, and I was always impressed at his positive attitude. He always greeted with a smile and a respect for everyone. I would have to say that Bobby was a friend that I never knew. My condolence to all the people Bobby was close to; I know I will miss him.
We loved Bobby very much and will miss his sense of humor, laughter and genuine concern for others. Our heartfelt sympathies to his family.
My deepest sympathy to the family. I always admired Bobby's commitment to his clients.
Bobby will be missed by all who knew him....My deepest condolences to the Hager family..To you Robert....love.
Bobby was a classmate of mine, a nice, enthusiastic, caring person who would always help anyone in need. He will be missed.
Bobby and I were friends in law school and remained friends after graduation. Bobby was so fun and he always made me laugh. He could turn any mundane activity into an unforgettable time. I miss him now, and always will. My deepest condolences to his friends and family.
