Talbot B. “Hap” Hagood Jr., 71, died Sunday, Feb. 11, 2018. Born in Danville on July 15, 1946, he was the son of the late Talbot B. Hagood Sr. and the late Elizabeth Woltz Hagood.

He was a former vice-chair and former executive board member of grassroots organization Southside Concerned Citizens, former conservation chair of the Sierra Club’s Thunder Ridge Group and currently was a member of the Sierra Club and Defenders of Wildlife and a contributing supporter of the Center for Biological Diversity.

Quoted from Hap, “Capturing and expressing the essence of the being in my sculptures is of the utmost importance; in hopes the viewer will not only see the beauty of the animal portrayed, but will also feel its undying spirit.”

At Hap’s request, he will be cremated and services will be private.
