William “Ben” Hager of Cartersville passed away at his home on March 28, 2019. Ben began his life’s adventure on July 17, 1982 in West Virginia. Ben was 36 years young. His family moved to Cartersville in December of 1984 and this is where Ben grew up, went to school, made life long friends, worked hard and played hard, and lived the rest of his adventure. He loved the outdoors, being on the water and on his four-wheeler. He had 2 faithful pups, Zeke and Lucy and loved them dearly.

Ben graduated from Cass High School and went to work with his dad in the landscaping business. He then pursued work with his learned skills in welding at Sheet Metal Components. This eventually led him to a 10 year career with Paragon Trailer Center where he began as a Tank Trailer Mechanic/Welder and worked his way up to Parts and Sales Manager. Restructuring late last year at Paragon then led Ben to a new career in the tanker industry as a Business Development Manager with National Tank Service beginning January 2, 2019.

In the spring of 2016, Ben met Ashley and her two children, Adison and Graham. The two were engaged on September 2, 2017. Together with their families, they eagerly awaited to celebrate their nuptials on March 30, 2019.

Ben was an only child and survived by his fiancé and her children, Ashley Crosby, Adison Crosby and Graham Crosby of Morganton; his father, William Carlos Hager (Teresa) of Rockmart, his mother, Cynthia Toler Dutton (Troy) of Adairsville; his grandmother, Helen Blankenship of Adairsville; his step-brothers, Eric Crumley (Whitney) and Matt Crumley of Rockmart; his step-sister, Amanda Dutton Samples (Sean) of Fairmount, and Maggie Dutton Taylor (Trey) of Savannah; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Ben was preceded in death by his grandparents, William Bill and Janet Barker Hager, and Donald Dewain Toler; and his cousin, William “Billy” Moscoe Conley.

We are forever changed; we will love and miss him dearly.

Rest in peace Ben ~
