POCATELLO " Rick “Papa/Pops” Hagler, 59, passed away at his home on Thursday, August 14, 2008. Rick was born February 19, 1949 in New Martinsville, West Virginia.

Rick settled in Omaha, Nebraska where he raised his family and began his 25-year career as a machinist for the Union Pacific Railroad. Eventually he relocated with his family to Pocatello where he lived for the last 14 years and made many friends.

Rick was a hard worker and a wonderful provider for his family. He loved to socialize and play pool and darts. He enjoyed yard work, cooking, fixing things around the house, football and listening to music. He had a great sense of humor and enjoyed a good laugh while watching the Andy Griffith show. He loved the freedom he felt riding his favorite motorcycle. Most of all, he loved his family, friends and dog, Boo.

Rick is survived by; his daughter, Cara; his son, Josh, and his significant other, Didi; granddaughters, Jataya and Mya; and his ex-wife of 25 years and friend for 36 years, Lynne.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Richard Hagler, Sr. and Clara Hagler.

Rick was a very loving and caring person. He wasn't afraid to “tell it like it is.” He touched many lives and will be loved, missed and remembered by all.

Let's all rejoice in Rick being set free in a “Celebration of His Life” today Saturday, August 23rd at 2:00 PM, at one of his favorite hangouts, The Hoffbrau, 134 Warren Avenue. Arrangements were handled under the care and direction of Wilks Funeral Home 211 W. Chubbuck Rd.
