In Loving Memory of Larry Hager


October 22, 1947 – February 29, 2024


It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Larry Hager, a beloved husband, devoted father, proud grandfather, and a cherished friend and member of the community. Larry peacefully departed this world on February 29, 2024, after a short but valiant battle with cancer, surrounded by the love and comfort of his family.


Born on October 22, 1947, to Nick and Kathleen Hager, Larry's early years were filled with the warmth and love of a close-knit family. In 1968, he married his soulmate, Lorna Oxamitny, beginning a lifelong journey of love and companionship. Together, they raised two wonderful children, Lisa Benavides (Joseph) and Leon Hager (Janilea), and reveled in the joy brought by their grandchildren, Kailea, Kiera, Austin and Colton. 


He is survived by his siblings Maureen Franklin (Roy), Ron Hager (Terrie), Terry Hager (Kathy), Lynne Miller (Ray), Cindy McFadden, Pat Hager (Irene), and David Hager (Jill) and in-laws Larry Oxamitny (Loretta), Sharon Lorenz (Ken) and Carol Beier and many nieces and nephews. Larry was predeceased by his father, Nick, his mother, Kathleen, and his brother-in-laws, Larry McFadden and Eddie Oxamitny and sister in-law MaryAnne Oxamitny.


Larry's roots were firmly planted in Compeer, where he and Lorna shared 29 years of their life.  Larry and Lorna took over the family tradition of farming and owning Hager Motors from his father Nick who took over from his grandfather Mike.  In 1997, Larry and Lorna embarked on a new chapter in Consort, where Larry started L&T Agro with his business partner Tony Owens until he retired in 2007.  Larry continued his legacy of community service in Consort where he served on the Consort Hospital Board, the Special Areas Board, and the Development Board, contributing to the betterment of the community. He also spent a lot of time working at the Consort Golf course.


Larry found joy in the simple pleasures of life – watching his granddaughters play ball, playing golf, being the maintenance guy at the cabin, driving the boat for his grandkids, engaging in woodwork projects, and savoring moments over coffee with friends. He also had a great love of hockey.  Larry brought out the excitement of every game whether it was through coaching in minor hockey or watching his favorite team the Montreal Canadiens.

Larry's community spirit shone brightly as he actively engaged in various roles, leaving a lasting impact on those around him. His passion for sports led him to coach minor league hockey, where he mentored and inspired the young athletes under his guidance. Larry also dedicated his time as a debate judge for the local 4-H club which enabled him to develop his debating skills at all the family functions.

The family extends their heartfelt appreciation to Dulcina Hospice for their compassionate care and unwavering support during Larry's final months.


Larry's memory will forever be a beacon of love, warmth, and community spirit. May he rest in eternal peace, and may his legacy continue to inspire and uplift those who had the privilege of knowing him.


Family, friends, and the community, are invited to gather for a funeral for Larry on Friday, March 8, 2024, at 1:00 p.m. at the Consort Sportex.
