Obituary: Don "Scott" Bagley, 69


September 6, 2018

Don Bagley

Don "Scott" Bagley, 69, went to be with the Lord on August 3, 2018.

He was born on July 28, 1949 in Yreka, California to Virginia and Don Bagley.

Scott remained living in Northern California and attended Leggett Valley High School where he graduated in 1967. He worked at local gas stations and became a firefighter for the State of California.

At age 19, he was in a terrible car accident and broke his back becoming a paraplegic and was confined to a wheelchair. He absorbed this tragic accident with grace and determination, living his life fully, not letting this accident define his life. He loved to hunt and fish, follow sports, especially the Bay area SF Giants, 49ers and Warriors. His love for food and cooking was only overshadowed by his faith and love of his Lord and Savior-Jesus Christ.

He was always studying and immersed himself in every topic he encountered. He would read and watch documentaries and if he could get you to take the bait, his favorite past time was to debate with you. He attended one year of college at College of the Redwoods and several years at Humboldt State. He continued his education at Chico State.

In 1982 he traveled to Homer, Alaska with his brother Mike and family where he lived and took care of his niece and nephews. In 1984 he moved to southeast Alaska making Petersburg, Alaska his new home. He worked for Stan and Sharon Langaker Construction and for the U.S. Forest Service. He attended church at Bethesda Fellowship.

He was battling health issues in 2018 and was admitted into long term care at Petersburg Medical Center. In July he was Med-flighted to Seattle Virginia Mason Hospital where he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

He is survived by his mother, Virginia Abrahamson; his brother Michael Bagley; three nieces and nephews as well as eleven great-nieces and nephews.

There will be a Memorial at Mountain View Manor on Fri., September 14, at 2:00 pm. Everyone is welcome.
