I remember Mr Hagood as a warm, kind and caring individual. when he was at the helm, his employees came first. During hurricane Hugo, Ben sent our trucks to Greenville with shopping list from his employees. Many a Monday morning would find fresh vegetables on the counter that Ben brought in for the taking. Ben Hagood was the spirit of the William M. Bird Company.

Dear Hagoods,
I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Ben was from the Greatest Generation newsman Tom Brokaw wrote of so eloquently. He was also part of the downtown crowd that included my parents. He was such an admirable gentleman, and an upstanding member of the community. May God bless you all as you say good-bye.
