HOWARD JOHN HAGEDORN was born on August 8, 1920 to William and Ethel (Nicholson)Hagedorn on the family farm in Gray Township, Pipestone County, Minnesota where he was raised and received his education, graduating from Pipestone High School in 1939. Following high school, he continued helping his father farm. Howard was united in marriage to Delores Hanson on December 7, 1944 in Pipestone, Minnesota. Following their marriage, he continued farming on the family farm. He farmed his entire life and was still helping his son, Steve, until this past month when he entered the Avera Heart Hospital on Sunday, November 17, 2013.
