Obituary

Michael L. Hagen, age 70, of Orland Park, IL, beloved husband for 43 years to Joan, nee Dressler. Loving father of Kathleen (Rev. Matt) Gunia, Elizabeth (Dan) Hampton, and the late James Michael Hagen. Cherished grandfather of Joseph, Colette, Vivian, and Otto Gunia; Carter and Quinn Hampton. Devoted son of Corinne and the late LeRoy Hagen. Dear brother of Tom (Diane) Hagen and Tim (Karen) Hagen. Dear uncle of many nieces and nephews.

Mike spent his entire career working as an architect for international design firms based in Chicago. A career of over 45 years included engagements with Skidmore Owings and Merrill, A. Epstein & Sons, tvsdesign and Gensler involving projects across the globe. Notable buildings and projects include: Sears (Willis) Tower, The Menninger Foundation in Wisconsin, Citi Corp Plaza in Los Angeles, Arlington International Racecourse, the McCormick Place Campus in Chicago including the South Hall, Hyatt Hotel(s), Corporate Office Center and the Marriott Hotel.

Mike loved his family, especially his grandkids and never missed an opportunity to spend time with them. He loved fly fishing, canoeing, hiking, and spending time outdoors. He enjoyed reading, listening to classical music and was a fantastic cook. He loved Chicago and its rich history of architecture and design. He always had a smile on his face, a bounce in his step, and a positive attitude. He created a perpetual calming presence in our lives and was the foundation of our family.

I have known Mike for about 8 years. He helped me, met with me and prayed with me every week for 2 years in a very difficult time in my life. You saved my life and I will forever miss you my friend. - Tim Hagan

I knew Mike and his family while growing up on Kilpatrick, as a friend of his brother Tim. I'm so sorry to hear about his passing, and too late to attend the services. My prayers and condolences to all of Mike's family and loved ones. I can see by the montage remembrance that he continued to be a rock for the Hagens, as he always kept an eye on us younger guys to make sure we stayed out of trouble . . . most of the time! I hope God's Grace will bring you all strength, healing and peace in this difficult time.
