Carter Hagen

September 7, 1947 — July 16, 2023



Carter Hollis Hagen, 75, of Gilbert, Minnesota died peacefully on Sunday, July 16, 2023 at the Essentia Health Hospital in Virginia, Minnesota.

Carter was born September 7, 1947 in Ada, Minnesota to Carl and Hazel (Larson) Hagen.

After high school, Carter enlisted in the Air Force in July of 1966. During his time in the Air Force, he served in Vietnam. He was a proud veteran who honored his fellow veterans, personally and formally as an active member of the VFW.

Carter loved the outdoors. He enjoyed spending time at the shack, hunting, and riding his motorcycle.  He also loved being around his friends and he had plenty of them. He could not go anywhere without running into somebody he knew.  With soft-spoken kindness and a friendly nature, he was always ready to lend a helping hand or a listening ear to anyone in need.
