TNT's Diner in West Fargo will close after the death of one of its owners


A beloved homestyle restaurant in West Fargo will close following the death of one of its owners.

Timothy Hagensen, who operated TNT’s Diner with his wife Tammy, disappeared around 3 p.m. Wednesday. The next day, Cass County authorities found a deceased male matching Hagensen's description in an abandoned vehicle that was registered under his name.

No foul play was suspected.

TNT's Diner reopened this week.

But now WDAY says the devastating loss is prompting the restaurant's owners to close up. Its last day in business will be Friday.

"It's just too hard. Everywhere I look, I see him here," Tammy Hagensen told The Forum Monday, adding she hopes to sell the business.

A gathering for family and friends of Timothy Hagensen is scheduled for Friday, according to an obituary on Boulger Funeral Home.

The West Fargo Police Department told BringMeTheNews that as of Tuesday morning, it had not yet received a report from the medical examiner that determines the cause of death.
