Vincent Onyango Hagono, 66, of Millersville, PA was called home on Friday, December 25, 2020 at Lancaster General Hospital. Born in Kenya, he was the son of the late Leonida (Obat) and Joseph Hagono Ong’are and son-in-law to the late Grace Okumu.  He was the beloved husband to Pamela Adhiambo Hagono for over 30 years. 

This a testament to the life and times of a dedicated husband, adoring father, a selfless son, the encompassing brother, uncle and friend who lived as an epitome of humility and service to his larger family and to his country. His level of honesty and integrity was his virtue and nobility and earned him respect among his professional peers

He was the loving father to Regina (Providence, RI), Nicholas (Columbia, PA) and Velma (Houston Texas); siblings: Philomena Anyango, Frank Hagono (Seattle, USA), Tony Hagono (South Sudan) as well as several nieces and nephews (in Kenya).  He was preceded in death by his siblings: Wilfred Nundu Hagono, Maurice Ochieng’, Elizabeth Akinyi, Rosa Athieno, Frederick Oluoch Wandago.

He was a world traveler who enjoyed life, museums, and was a culinary enthusiast. Most of all he cherished his family.  He prioritized peace as a pillar in his life, building bridges was his nature and saw the good in all humanity. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Prior to retirement, Vincent was an electrical engineer for Kenya Railways Corporation, African Development Bank and run his consulting firm - Engineering Associates.
