One of the pillars of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, passed away Saturday afternoon.

Duane B. Hagadone, 88, died in his winter home in Palm Desert, California, family members confirmed.

Mr. Hagadone built one of the Inland Northwest’s strongest business empires, including The Coeur d’Alene Resort, a newspaper group whose flagship paper is the Coeur d’Alene Press, restaurants, boat dealership, rental properties and more. The Herald is part of this newspaper group.

At the time of his death, Mr. Hagadone still served as chairman of the board of The Hagadone Corp. while son Brad Hagadone ran the company day to day.

“A native of Coeur d’Alene, Duane loved North Idaho and the communities that the Hagadone Corporation has served,” the family said in a statement.

Arrangements will be announced in the coming days.
