Morgan Hager, 57, passed away on Sept. 21, 2020, in St. George, Utah. He was born on Dec. 8, 1962, in Pasco, Washington, to Marion and Naomi Hager. He was married to Robyn Brown in Seattle, Washington in November of 1985, and they were later sealed in the Dallas, Texas Temple.
Morgan was raised in Quincy and Cashmere, Washington. He joined the United States Air Force in 1985 and was able to travel the world with his family and have many amazing experiences. He served in the United States Air Force for 25 years and retired as a Senior Master Sergeant.
After Morgan retired, he had the great opportunity to become an instructor with the Dixie High School and other surrounding school’s JROTC programs. He relished this opportunity more than anything and was grateful he got to be a part of these young men and young women’s lives.
Morgan loved spending time with his family, was an avid outdoorsman, and enjoyed his Harley Davidson rides. One of his heroes was Chuck Norris, and he was well known to share Chuck Norris quotes daily with his JROTC students, as well as his passion for Bigfoot to whoever might listen.
He is survived by his wife Robyn, his children Lindsay (Julio) Garfias, Logan (Erin) Hager, Leanna Hager, and Luke (Taylor) Hager, and his four and a half grandchildren. Later in his life, he was very grateful to have the opportunity to become close to his older brother, Mike Hager and his newly-found older brother, Bart Westby. He was preceded in death by his mother and father, Naomi and Marion Hager. His memory will continue to live on within his family, circle of friends, and the hundreds of students he inspired.
The family would like to thank Dixie High School’s JROTC, Serenity Funeral Home of Southern Utah, and the many people who reached out to extend their kind thoughts.
In lieu of flowers, Morgan would have been grateful for donations to the Washington County School District JROTC program.
