Princeton cardiologist John Hagaman dies at 69

John Hagaman

Princeton cardiologist John F. Hagaman, M.D., died at home on March 6 after a long illness. Dr. Hagaman was born in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania on December 15, 1947. He was a graduate of the Episcopal Academy in Merion, Pennsylvania; Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut; and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Andrea Hyde, and two sons, Charles Hagaman and William Hagaman.

Among the many condolences received from colleagues, family and friends, one in particular stands out: “John was an exceptional human being – a dedicated, perceptive and caring physician, a committed citizen who selflessly gave his time and energies to his church, his choir, his hospital and his scouts, to name but a few. He was, above all, a very caring and very sweet man who loved his family, friends and community and was loved in turn. I am honored to have known him as a colleague, friend and doctor.”

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 18th at 1 p.m. at Trinity Church, 33 Mercer Street, Princeton with a reception immediately following.
