SOUTH PORTLAND — Timothy D. Hagerman, 26, died Dec. 26 at Maine Medical Center after a year-long battle with cancer.
Born on July 21, 1985 in Malden, Mass., he was the son of Reis F. and Catherine P. Hagerman. He attended Scarborough schools, graduating from Scarborough High School in 2004.
An avid sportsman throughout his life, Hagerman participated in basketball, baseball, football and soccer. He played basketball for Scarborough High School and Southern Maine Community College. He played for SMCC’s Seawolves in 2007 and 2008, and was a member of the back-to-back Yankee Small College Conference Championship teams that went on to semifinal finishes at the United States Collegiate Athletic Association Division II national tournament.
“Timmy was one of those guys that pumped life into your team,” said SMCC coach Matt Richards, “He was full of energy, cared for his teammates and always strived to make himself and others around him better. He took those qualities and became an outstanding young man and husband. I will truly miss him everyday.”
A natural and gifted entrepreneur, Hagerman received an Associate of Science degree in business from SMCC, and later started TDH Landscaping and Snowy Days Plowing. His most recent venture was the purchase of DJ Triggs disc jockey business; he also worked as a claims specialist for TD Bank.
Hagerman married Molly Findlay on Oct. 9, 2010 at Holy Cross Church in South Portland.
His family and friends will remember him as someone who could light up a room; his outgoing and charming personality immediately drew everyone he met into his large circle of friends.
He is survived by his wife; his parents of Scarborough; sisters Lauren and Lindsay Hagerman of Scarborough; father and mother-in-law, Matthew and Coleman Findlay of South Portland; paternal grandmother, Marie Hagerman of Zephyrhills, Fla.; grandfather and grandmother-in-law, Ron and Mary Costigan of South Portland; many loving aunts, uncles, cousins; and many friends.
Visiting hours were held on Dec. 29 at Conroy-Tully Crawford South Portland Chapel, 1024 Broadway, South Portland. Burial will take place at New Calvary Cemetery in South Portland. Memorial contributions in Hagerman’s name can be made to Holy Cross School, 436 Broadway, South Portland, ME 04106.
