Edgar (Eddie) Stagner was a resident of Hampstead.

When Hazel Stagner’s husband Eddie passed away, the couple had been married for 73 years. Eddie was the oldest member of the Hampstead Volunteer Fire Department, where he had previously served as President and was also the oldest member overall. He was the oldest member still alive. Eddie was a member of the department for his entire life. In addition to that, he was an active participant in the activities of the Hanover Moose Lodge.

After he retired, he drove a school bus in the Hampstead and Manchester area for the following 15 years until he finally stopped working altogether.
