Obituaries » Edwin Charles Hagedorn

Retired U.S. Navy Lt. Commander Edwin Charles Hagedorn, 86, of Warrenton, died peacefully at home on April 19, 2017. 

Born June 17, 1930, in Omaha, Neb., he grew up in nearby Gretna, the son of the late Edwin Henry and Linda Blumer Hagedorn.

Mr. Hagedorn served in the United States Navy for nearly 30 years and was commanding officer of the USS Iredell County (1966-168) and the USS Lorain County (1970-72). 

He was a dependable man of great integrity who diligently applied a "no shortcuts" mentality to life. After retiring from the service, he parlayed his Naval electronics training into part-time civilian work in appliance repair at Tolson Appliance in Warrenton. Known by all as the quintessential "Mr. Fix-it," this mentality extended to handiwork with fence posts, small engines, bird feeders, vegetable gardens, furniture, toys, barns of all sizes, signs, tractors and anything else at his home or at the Warrenton Church of Christ that could possibly be perceived as broken.

In retirement, Mr. Hagedorn became an avid singer with the Blue Ridge Barbershoppers and Warrenton Chorale. He completed the Washington Post crossword puzzle every morning for many years. He was a fierce Canasta player and loyal sports fan.  

He will be remembered with love by his wife of 66 years, Edith M. Hagedorn; son, Steven R. Hagedorn; daughter-in-law, Peggy S. Hagedorn; daughter, Kimberly M. Hagedorn Winter; son-in-law, Ronald H. Winter; sister, Aloise Schroeder; half-brother, Larry Marinovic; granddaughter, Hannah S. Hill; grandson-in-law, Joshua. A. Hill; granddaughter, Brianna Snyder; grandsons, Zachary M. Hagedorn and Nicholas C. Hagedorn, and three great grandchildren, Elana M. Hill, Maya R. Hill, and Noah L. Hill. 

The family will receive friends at 2 pm Friday, April 28, at Warrenton Church of Christ, 6398 Lee Highway Access Road. A celebration of life service will follow at 2:30 p.m.
