John Miles Hagemann

May 12, 1957 – July 31, 2015

Miles grew up on a farm south of Ponoka. He attended the Ponoka School. A close friend through school was Murray Jackshaw. Miles’ passion for art started in school, where it was a class that he really enjoyed. He traced and sketched many pictures that hung on his walls. He also created wooden yard art with comical characters. After leaving the farm, Miles lived for ten years with his Grandmother Elsie and was really fond of her. Then he lived with Diane Brown in Sylvan Lake for the next ten years. Miles and Diane then moved to Norby Crescent in Red Deer where he lived until he passed. Miles worked for many years at the Red Deer Centrium. A highlight for Miles were the years when he and Diane had a holiday trailer – he really enjoyed going camping. Miles loved dogs. He enjoyed selling things and spent many an afternoon at the mall selling tickets. He was a joker and had an infectious giggle. Micheal Oneal and Charlie Bowie have been great friends to Miles in recent years. Miles worked with Micheal in his handyman business. Miles was always optimistic, no matter how rough things got. He never failed to have a new scheme or plan for some new project. He will be missed by his friends, good neighbours and family. Miles is lovingly remembered by his parents Elmer and Joyce Hagemann; his sister Laura Bluck (Ken) and their son Cameron Bluck; his brother Ross Hagemann (Jenefer) and their daughter Elsie; aunt Helen and uncle Ron Hagemann and aunt Joyce and uncle Bob Kittle; great-aunt Sister Eleanor Bednar; special cousin Debbie and Bruce Boelster (Hagemann); numerous other cousins; his good friend Micheal Oneal; neighbour and friend Jack; and long time friend Charlie Bowie. He was predeceased by his brother Gary Hagemann. A Funeral Service will be held on Thursday, August 13, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. at the Ponoka United Church. The Interment Service will follow at the Forest Home Cemetery, Ponoka. Memorial donations in John Miles name are gratefully accepted to the Food Bank in your area.
