Engolf Welton Hagen
June 12, 1924 – November 22, 1952
Recovered June 12, 2012

Engolf Hagen passed away on November 22, 1952. He is survived by his youngest sibling Eleanor Yeager.

Engolf’s parents, John Erickson Hagen from North Dakota (of Norwegian descent) and Ellen Marie Sjodin from Sweden, settled in Roseau, Minnesota where they raised their 10 children on a large farm that John purchased from his parents.

Approximately 1942 to 1944, Engolf (along with all 3 of his brothers) enlisted into the military to serve their country during World War II. James, the eldest (b. 1918) joined the Merchant Marines and was stationed at Fort McArthur, California. Gilbert (b. 1922) enlisted in the Army fought and survived the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Engolf (b. 1924) joined the Marines and was stationed in the South Pacific. After the war, Engolf re-enlisted in the U.S. Air Force to serve in the Korean War. John (b. 1925) joined the army and was stationed in Germany.

With the exception of the eldest brother James (who recently passed at 93 years of age), Gilbert, Engolf and John were lost prematurely due to war related circumstances.

Technical Sergeant Engolf Welton Hagen will return home to his family with full military honors on August 22, 2014. Services will be held at Rose Hills Memorial Park in Whittier, California at 11:30 a.m.

Engolf will finally be laid to rest alongside his parents, John and Ellen.
