Thomas “Tommy” Eugene Hagan, 85, of Owensboro, passed away peacefully Friday, Oct. 2, 2020, at the Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. Tommy was born Feb. 25, 1935, to the late Fred and Marie Hagan.
He was retired from Texas Gas Transmission Corp. Tommy started his career there in the mailroom and retired 46 years later after serving as the company’s controller. He was a long-standing member of Our Lady of Lourdes parish, where he served on the finance committee and acted as the treasurer of Lourdes’ picnic for over 20 years.

He was preceded in death by brothers, Jimmy, Maurice and Joe; and a sister, Patricia Hill.
