His most famous role was one of his nicer ones, as kindly Doc Baker on Little House on the Prairie. He played the part from 1974-1983 and in a one-man show, A Playful Dose of Prairie Wisdom.
In 1992 he moved to Grants Pass, Oregon after a celebrity golf tournament, and continued to act. In 2004 he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. In the last year of his life, Hagen went to the National Enquirer to claim that Little House creator and star Michael Landon had not given the cast their fair share of money on residuals. In a follow up interview, Hagen thanked fans for their support and said some co-stars had contacted him to tell him they also felt they had been cheated out of money.
Hagen passed away on July 9, 2005. He left behind a widow, Jan (his fourth wife; he met her in 1993), and a son, Kristopher.
