Wayne Hager

August 31, 1959 — April 6, 2024

McCook, NE

Cecil Wayne Hager, known as Wayne to his loved ones and friends, of McCook, NE passed away on April 6, 2024, at Great Plains Health in North Platte, NE. 

Wayne was born August 31, 1959, in McCook, to parents Cecil B and Opal I (Seacrest) Hager. He was one of three sons born to the union. 

In his formative years, Wayne completed his education at McCook High School alongside the Class of 1977, setting the stage for a life characterized by commitment and integrity. 

Wayne was a man of many talents and passions. He found joy in simple pleasures like playing cards, but his true excitement emerged when watching NASCAR races or cheering for the Cornhusker Football team. His dedication extended beyond enjoyment as he actively supported high school sports and even took on the role of a baseball coach within the Indianola Baseball Program.
 
Within Wayne's circle of family and friends, he leaves behind cherished memories that will forever resonate in their hearts. He is survived by his son Jeff (Sheryl) Hager and daughter Audrey, from Herzliya, Israel; daughter Brooke (Tim) Robinson from Wylie, TX, along with their children Cora and Cole; brothers Ronald (Dottie) Hager of Tyrone, OK and David (Kathy) Hager of Atchison, KS; as well as nephews Bill Hager, Jim Hager-Frease, Gary Hager, Ron Hager, Chris Hager, Matt Hager, Alan Schneider, and Charlie Schneider.

Wayne was preceded in death by his parents; and one nephew, Brian Hager. 
 
While we mourn the loss of Wayne in our lives today, we also celebrate the legacy he leaves behind. His kindness, passion for sports, and unwavering support for his community have touched countless lives and will continue to inspire all those who were fortunate enough to know him.

Memorial Contribution: The Nebraska Kidney Association 212 South 74th Street, Omaha, NE 68114.
