Robert Lee (Bob) Hagans was born November 16, 1927, in Bonifay, Florida. Both of Bob’s parents died when Bob was very young. He was raised by his paternal grand parents J.V and Mattie Ross of Bonifay. In December of 1947 Bob enlisted in the US Air Force and achieved the rank of S/Sgt. before being honorably discharged in May 1956. After the AirForce, Bob served for 37 years with Defense Logistics Agency, a Federal Defense Contracting agency. Bob was a true patriot and was honored to be invited on the Honor Flight in 2022. He was also a member of the local amateur radio club.
Bob is survived by his daughter Linda of Jacksonville, FL and cousins Donald Ross, Ross McSwain and Sarah McSwain of Tallahassee, Florida, Victor Stokes of Ft. Walton Beach, Florida and Ray Stokes of Girley, Alabama.
