Calvin "Cal" Hageman

Calvin "Cal" Hageman, age 93 of rural Belleville, passed away on Monday, May 13, 2019, at his home. He was born on February 28, 1926, on his family's home farm, the son of William and Martha (Fluckiger) Hageman.

Cal graduated as the Valedictorian from Belleville High School in 1944. After his graduation, Cal rode his Harley-Davidson motorcycle to California; he left Wisconsin in December and returned in February. He loved to race motorcycles on the ice. On December 1, 1951, he was united in marriage to Grace Klapper in Appleton, WI. Cal was a dairy farmer until retiring, he then went on to become a beloved school bus driver of the Verona School District for 26 years, until the age of 86. Cal always had a joke for the kids on the bus each morning and afternoon. There was always a "Cal fix" going on for any piece of machinery that broke down, and all things benefitted from a little tinkering. He was a member of the Zwingli United Church of Christ-Paoli; enjoyed bowling; was Secretary for the Moonlighter's bowling league at Kamm Bowl in Verona; along with being a member of the neighborhood card club. Cal loved the outdoors; he enjoyed birdwatching and attending plow days. But most of all he loved to share his time and stories with family and friends.

Cal is survived by his children, Linda (Rosendo Diaz) LeRoy, Judy (William Warner) Hageman, Tom (Karen Fonte) Hageman, Jeff (Leah) Hageman, and Kathy Buechel; six grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and a special friend, Betty Legler.
