Brendan (Red) James Hagan was born the son of Robert and Gertrude Hagan (predeceased) as well as his six siblings (Brother, Robert, and Sisters, Constance, Gertrude, Mercedes, Margie, and Bernadette also predeceased). Born and raised in Braddock, PA, he graduated from St. Thomas High School and later Rochester Institute of Technology. Brendan was a Seaman One in the US Navy and traveled through Japan and Hawaii during the Korean War. Brendan married Mary B Holleran in 1958 and they were married for 63 years until Mary’s death in 2021.
Brendan and Mary moved to Rochester NY in 1960 where he and Mary raised 4 children: Taryn (Dave), Robert (Theresa), Kathy (Raymond), and Mary Pat (Leo). Brendan later had 8 grandchildren: Catie (Gerald), Mary, Martha, Claire, John, Kevin, Michael, and Bridget and four great-grandchildren: Victoria, Farrah (predeceased), Gerald, and Brendan.
Brendan spent the last 32 years of his career at Xerox Corporation as an Industrial Engineer, retiring in 2003. He worked hard to support his family and their education. He was always quick to lend a helping hand to others in their home projects: large and small.
After living 60 years in Rochester, Brendan moved to Berkeley Lake, GA to be with his son and spent time in Greensboro, GA with his granddaughter and great-grand kids. Brendan was always the first to make a joke and greatly enjoyed watching sports, especially when it was his kids, grandkids and his great-grandkids playing. He loved a good game and liked to call his brother-in law while watching in particular the Steelers and the Bills. He is greatly loved and will be missed by all. McCommons Funeral Home, 109 W. Broad St., Greensboro, GA 30642, (706) 453-2626, is in charge of arrangements.
