He is survived by his wife, Loretta Mosby-Hager; his mother, Velma Hager-Mason; six children, Nakia (Keke) Hager, Michael A. Hager Jr., Mya Hager, Robert Mosby, George Mosby, and Nicole Mosby; five siblings, Mary Jennings of Columbus, Ohio, Carolyn Hager of Pittsburgh, Pa., Nancy Hager of Wheeling, William (Sara) Mason of Hawaii, and Shirley (Larry) Owens of Cleveland, Ohio; six sisters-in-law, Lettie (Claude) Rice, Dorothy (Vaughn) Robinson, Margaret Mosby, Shirley Mosby-Couch, Fannie Mosby, and Helen Hager; one brother-in-law, Joseph Mosby; a host of grandchildren, nephews, nieces, cousins; special friend, Lourena McWhorter; and other relatives and friends.
