Working with John for 20 + years at Faribault Bus Sales & Service then ABC Bus, we shared many memories of Johnny. He was a great worker always willing to do what he could to get the job done. We saw him grow up, get married and start the family that he loved. He was a good son & brother and will be missed by all who knew him. To the Hagel family the memories of this terrific person will some day put a smile on your face. But as for now tears will fill your eyes as you hold him close to your heart. God Bless!!
