Mark Joseph Hagenian, 68, a lifelong resident of Lincoln, MA, passed away from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident on the Kancamagus Scenic Byway in Albany, NH on Thursday, October 15, 2020.
Devoted son of Irene R. Hagenian, of Lincoln, MA and the late Joseph C. Hagenian, Mark was the adoring father of Nicholas, Stephen, and William Hagenian, all of Lincoln, MA. He was the brother of Ann McManus and her husband Russ of Hancock, NH, and the late Charles Hagenian. Mark is also survived by many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and friends.
A 1970 graduate of Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School, he furthered his education at Western New England College. Mark began his career at Swanson Pontiac in Lincoln, MA, and later became a mechanic at the dealership. He spent many years as a manager at American Food Holding Corporation, which owned and operated restaurants across Massachusetts, including almost 30 years at Jimmy’s On The Mall, in Burlington, MA. In recent years he worked as a dispatcher for Corporate Limousine in Woburn, MA.
He loved spending time with his family and being outdoors enjoying nature. He enjoyed fishing, camping trips to Newfound Lake, NH, vacations in Wells, ME, and at the Balsams. He was an excellent cook, and he enjoyed his hours in the vegetable and flower gardens
. Mark had been a longtime member of Grace Chapel Church in Lexington where he enjoyed deepening and sharing faith with his fellow church members. At Grace Chapel, he was a member of the Shine Program which taught religious education to individuals with learning disabilities.
Mark had recently felt a renewed excitement for motorcycling. His motorcycle, a 2019 Harley Davidson Heritage Classic Softail, was his pride and joy. He had put thousands of miles on it in the last half year. He loved taking day trips all over Cape Cod, New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont. Lately, he often would pick a destination from his past and take a ride to revisit it. He would then send a picture to his mom, sister, sons, or friends having them guess where he was from the photograph. The day of his accident, he was riding the Kancamagus appreciating the peak fall colors.
Mark will be interred alongside his father and brother at Lincoln Cemetery on Lexington Road in Lincoln, MA. The memorial will take place at the Lincoln Cemetery on Friday, October 30 at 11 a.m., with his friend and minister from Grace Chapel, Reverend Cynthia Fantasia, officiating the services. Relatives and friends are respectfully invited.
