    Warren P. Hager
    Beloved husband, father, and brother
    Warren P. Hager, 79, of Hillsdale, NJ, passed away peacefully on Friday, April 17, 2020. Born in Jersey City, he lived in Hillsdale for 48 years.
    Predeceased in death by his parents Walter H. Hager and Madeleine T. Horn (Hager), he is survived by his beloved wife Lieselotte M. Hager of 55 years.

    Warren was the devoted father of Erika E. Giordano and father-in-law to Anthony S. Giordano; dear twin brother of Walter P. Hager (Carol), and cherished brother to Charles M. Hager (Ellen). He was the loving Opa of Matthew D. Giordano.
    He is survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

    Warren was a kind soul who always had a spring in his step, a wonderful dry sense of humor and a generous heart. He loved life and was dedicated to his career and family.

    Warren served in the U.S. Army during Vietnam and, upon returning to civilian life, he worked for the New York Stock Exchange in Floor Operations for nearly 48 years. He loved his job and the people with whom he worked. He survived September 11, 2001, and is forever tied to the special operations team who got the trading floor back up and running post the aftermath of terrorism.

    He was passionate about his hobby of over 65 years - Amateur (Ham) Radio, and was an active member in both the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) and Bergen Amateur Radio Association (BARA), North Jersey DX Association (NJDXA).
    His hobby sometimes consumed all aspects of him, but in a good way, as he used it to help others in time of crisis, such as running phone patches for solders during Vietnam and the Gulf Wars so they could call home and speak to their families; or in times of natural disaster like Superstorm Sandy helping local government agencies with communications.
    Through his Ham Radio, Warren made lifelong friends, saw many places in the United States and Europe and was able to volunteer and support communications via Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (R.A.C.E.S) for the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) in Montvale, NJ. for more than 25 years.

    Warren was also an active member of the Masonic Temple Lodge #173 and Zion Lutheran Church in Westwood, NJ.
    In light of Social Distancing, a Drive-by Memorial Service will occur on Saturday, May 2, 2020. Mourners are asked to gather at Becker Funeral Home, 219 Kinderkamack Road, Westwood at 2PM to join the memorial processional.
    Mourners will depart Becker Funeral Home at 2:30 PM and route via police escort towards the memorial site in Hillsdale, NJ. Vehicles can pause for a moment to take in the tribute for Warren, but mourners are asked not to get out of their vehicles or congregate near the memorial.
    Ushers will curate baskets at the memorial site for mourners to leave notes, cards and other small remembrances for the immediate family who will be present.

    Members of the Montvale and Hillsdale Police Departments, Montvale Office of Emergency Management (OEM), American Amateur Radio Association (AARL), Bergen Amateur Radio Association (BARA), North Jersey DX Association (NJDXA) and Masonic Temple Lodge #173, acknowledge Warren's dedication to the community and life achievements through this Drive-by Memorial Service.

    The Hager Family would greatly like to thank Chief Robert Francaviglia of the Hillsdale Police Department and Chief Joseph Sanfilippo of the Montvale Police Department for their assistance with event coordination. Special thanks to Frank DiPalma, Montvale OEM for being a "Helper" in a time of sorrow.

    A private funeral with military honors will take place at a later date, when Social Distancing restrictions due to the COVID-19 Pandemic have resided.

    In lieu of flowers, donations should be made to the Parkinson's Foundation and The Valley Hospital Foundation in Memory of Warren P. Hager. Parkinson's Foundation, 200 SE 1st Street, Suite 800, Miami, FL 33131. The Valley Hospital Foundation, 223 N Van Dien Ave, Ridgewood, NJ 07450.
