Doug Hagen, Rest In Peace

Below is the official statement from Doug’s son and the current CEO, Nathan Sloan.

It is with a heavy heart we announce that Doug Hagen, founder, and former owner of B-K Lighting + Teka Illumination, passed away early Sunday, December 12, 2021.

Our companies have lost not only a powerhouse in the industry, but also an invested mentor and dear friend. Doug built up B-K Lighting for more than 30 years and became known as a leader and expert in the lighting world before retiring in 2014. His knowledge and passion for lighting will be greatly missed and leaves a void that cannot be filled.

Doug was a caring and loving man who leaves behind his wife, Kathleen, his three children, Yvette Alexander, Kimberly Minard and Nathan Sloan, six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

For those of us that knew Doug and knew him well, may you always remember the sweetest of memories. It is hard to express how much he meant to so many people and in so many ways. He sought to make the lighting industry and the world around him a better place and we vow to continue honoring Doug by doing the same.
