It is with an extremely heavy heart to announce that our beloved Nicholas William Hagan, 26, passed away suddenly on Tuesday, June 30, 2020, while at home with his mother, Elaine Clewell. He is survived by his big brother Christopher that he so cherished, his caring father, Chris, and Elaine, his loving mother.
Nicholas was born here in Texas on 12/28/93. My doctor told me that Nick would probably be born on Christmas so that is why I chose the name Nicholas. Even though he waited until 3 days later, he was still the best Christmas gift ever!
Nicholas attended his high school years and graduated June 2013 from Stratford High School. He was active in Track and Cross Country and was about to be in Varsity until the coach had a meltdown with the whole team. He always made excellent times and was usually one of the first to finish. I was so proud of him and enjoyed watching him do what he loved to do. I attended every single event without fail! He loved running and wanted it to be a lifelong health choice.
Nicholas made many friends in high school and remained friends still. He was a wonderful and extremely kind young man with a smile that could light up any room! He was loved by just about everyone who met him. He loved life and cared so much for family and others. His greatest music love was for the band called Tool (MJK)! I was even lucky enough to go with both of my sons to their concerts TWICE!! They are some of the best memories that I’ve been blessed with. This was a classic Tool on the brain guy but it made me smile to see him enjoy things in life. I used to love listening to him singing to their songs with so much feeling.
The last few months it seemed we were inseparable spending almost many hours catching up on shows that we kept up with and starting new tv series. It was a great bonding time and I will cherish it forever. I don’t want to forget to mention Nicks best fur buddy Chance. They both had a loving bond and many times Chance would sleep right next to Nick. I can tell that Chance feels Nicks absence and I sometimes find him laying right on Nicks pillow. Nicholas had a great love for dogs. During many of our talks, he spoke about his dream of buying land so that he could open a dog rescue/refuge. I applauded the idea and volunteered to do my part. I pray this is something he will be able to do in heaven.
I miss his good night hug and “I love you mom” every night, without fail as he got ready to go to sleep. And each day when I woke up I would find him in the living room with his headphones on and playing his game. Now, I kiss his pillow and say I love you Nick and still expect to see him right there playing that Xbox. I don’t think that will change.
I LOVE YOU MY ANGEL! Read More
