    I have the utmost respect for those who serve our Country in the Armed Forces. Major Hagerty, thank you for your sacrifice. It has NOT gone unnoticed, or unappreciated. R.I.P.

    Hagerty’s funeral Friday
    Rick Hoover - NewsPress


    Funeral services for Maj. Scott Hagerty of Stillwater will take place Friday.

    Hagerty, a graduate of Stillwater High School and Oklahoma State University, was killed in action near Zormat, Afghanistan on June 3.

    Hagerty’s funeral will be held at 10:30 a.m. at the First United Methodist Church, intersection of Seventh and Duck. Burial will follow at Sunset Memorial Gardens, 6500 S. Perkins Road. Hagerty will be accorded full military honors.

    Hagerty died when a roadside bomb exploded near his vehicle. The blast also claimed 20-year-old Pfc. Derek Holland of Wind Gap, Pa.

    Hagerty’s wife, Daphne, and their sons, Jonathan, age 10, and Samuel, 20 months, are Stillwater residents, as are Hagerty’s parents, Don and Shirley Hagerty.

    Hagerty’s family is asking the community to help honor and thank Hagerty for his sacrifice, including:

    • Attend his funeral — additional seating will be available in the church’s fellowship hall, where the service will be available via television link.

    • Honor and thank the members of the military attending the funeral.

    • Several sites are provided such as the “condolences” link at www.Strodefh.com or search for Scott Hagerty on the Legacy.com link at www.stwnewspress.com.

    Additionally, the family has asked that supporters line the route to the cemetery. The procession will travel east on Seventh Avenue to Main Street, and then south on Main Street to Sunset Memorial Gardens. Supporters can bring American flags and homemade signs of remembrance and thanks.

    Matt Hull, a financial adviser with Edward D. Jones, 919 S. Main St., is helping spread the word about Friday’s ceremonies.

    “I’m just kind of doing what’s right to honor the people who are from this community who are willing to do things that other people aren’t,” Hull said.

    Hull is recruiting Boy Scouts and volunteers to be downtown to hold full-size American flags as the procession passes. He said Troops 806 and 822 are providing approximately 100 full-size flags for Friday.

    Hull is also informing downtown businesses of the plans and asking the businesses to inform their customers so that they may also line the procession route. As part of his efforts, Hull said Forman Harley-Davidson on South Main has agreed to allow supporters to gather in their parking lot, which is one of the last areas to gather before the procession will reach the cemetery.

    “I don’t think I’ve ever worked on anything as important,” Hull said. “You would hope that your friends and your neighbors would do the same thing for you.”

    The NewsPress will print an American flag in Thursday’s newspaper. NewsPress employees will wear red, white and blue ribbons and are encouraging other supporters to do the same. The NewsPress has some ribbons available at the office, 211 W. Ninth Ave., and they are free as long as supplies last.

    Hagerty graduated from Stillwater High in 1984 and earned a bachelor’s degree in 1993 in political science, pre-law and international relations from OSU.

    Some of you may notice that Major Hagerty is now the default background image on the site.

    His funeral is tomorrow. This is our way of flying a flag at half mast in his honor.

    Saturday we'll remove the image and it will go back to the previous default image. I want to make something clear, this was done because he is a soldier who died in the service of our country and was a member of this site. These are unique circumstances.

    Will Hagerty's background be permanently removed from the Select Feature Image drop down list? I only ask in case some of us would prefer to keep him as a background past this weekend.

    If any of you have ever wanted to confront the anti-war protestors from the Kansas church who mock our fallen soldiers here is your chance.


    Edit: They will be on the corner of 6th Ave. and Main St. near the Walgreens.


    I just learned that they will be in Stillwater, Oklahoma tomorrow doing what they do. They will be about 4 blocks from the Church and the funeral procession will not see them. Nor will they hear them. The Veterans biker gang who follows them will also be there revving up their Harleys between the protestors and the church.

    What a wonderful and deserving tribute to Major Hagerty. This is only one reason I love this place. I would also like to know if his background will be permanently removed from the Select Feature Image drop down list.

    Subhuman garbage. Those people better hope there isn't a God, because judgment day will not go in their favor.

    Photo from the funeral.

    The line of people to pay tribute stretched for 5 miles on both sides of the road from the church to the gravesite.

    Major Hagerty's widow saw the site and read your words of tribute.

    Monday his friend who has kept me up to date on all of this would like to tell you all how much it has meant.

    Just thought you all should know.
