Tammy Hagan

May 19, 1960 – July 19, 2020

Tammy Hagan, 60, passed away July 19, 2020 with her husband and daughter by her side after a two-year long battle with cancer.

She was born May 19, 1960 in Homer, Alaska, and moved to lake Havasu, Arizona nine years ago. She was always a true Alaskan.

Tammy’s accomplishments and acts of love are too many to list, but some of her greatest were running the Willards Moose Lodge for snow machine enthusiasts and hunters, long shoring on the Homer Spit and commercial fishing with her father in early years, and then her husband in her adult years.

To know her was truly to love and admire her. If you have been served by her at the lodge, worked alongside her on the docks or boats, have been at one of her many hosted events in her home or just saw her biking her 30 daily miles, you could feel the amazing presence that she was. She was known far and wide for her hard work and caring spirit.

Tammy is preceded in death by her father, Bruce Willard, and her brothers, Doug and Jess Willard.

She is survived in death by her husband, Charles Hagan; her daughter, Lacy Epperson; her sister, Kristin Willard; her mother, Linda Willard; and her grandchildren, Timmy, Emma and Brianna.

Tammy will be greatly missed by all who knew her. We take comfort that she is now with the Lord.

Celebration of life will be announced at a later time and is expected to be held in July 2021 in Homer.
