Not sure what to say?

I recently heard about the death of Dr. F. C. Hagerman and was sad to hear this news. During my undergraduate years at OU I took both Dr. Hagerman's Anatomy and exercise physiology classes in 1974-78. He was one of my favorite professors. It stands without question that he is missed in the Athens Community. With my son attending OU this fall I shared the many stories of my time in his classes as we walked the campus. Rest in peace Dr. Hagerman.

I had the honor of being one of Fritz' Anatomy lab assistants as an undergrad. He was a great man and a wonderful person. I owe much to him and I will Never forget him.

Dear Mrs. Hagerman and all the Hagermans:

I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to express my sympathies to you and your family. I keep meaning to do something about it, but it's difficult to find the right words to adequately express my sadness for you and also convey the special place your husband held in my life.

Dr. Hagerman was an influential figure in the neighborhood for as long as I can remember, throughout my childhood and beyond. Of course, he wasn't always...

I am where I am today because of Fred Hagerman. And I love where I am today. Kudos to Fritz.

Dr. Hagerman touched my life in many ways. I was thinking of him just this week, and often share stories of him or his class to my children. I owe him much. My prayers to all of his family.

To the Hagerman Family,
I am sorry to have just learned of Dr. Hagerman's passing. I was a student at OU from ‘83–'88. I have so many good memories of my time at OU, and many of them include inspiring experiences in the classroom, lab, and even a few runs with Dr. Hagerman. His ability to balance career, family and competitive running fascinates me to this day. I would like to share a few of my favorite memories.
The first day I met Dr. Hagerman was in anatomy lecture. I walked...

I am very sorry to learn of Dr. Hagerman's passing. He was a great man. He was the best professor I ever had, from my bachelor's degree at Ohio University through my Master's degree at Syracuse University. I had a close relationship with Dr. Hagerman during my time at OU. I tutored anatomy for his classes, and he sponsored me for my Dean's Achievement Scholarship. I met my wife of 35 years in his physiology of exercise class. I also remember his caring way with students and his bantering with...

Dear Marge, Erik, Kris & Bonnie,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I have such fond memories of Fritz and all of you from the time we met in 1969. Especially recall attending all of the cross country meets for Athens High School and Fritz's intensity of support for Erik & Kris and the whole team. You are in my prayers.

Marge and family, My thoughts are with you. Fritz is one of the most influential individuals I've have the opportunity to know. Every job, appointment and school acceptance I owe to 'Doc'. He will always be legendary in many minds. Thank you Dr. Hagerman.
