Hagrid’s father dies

The Harry Potter Canon

"Course, I never was great shakes at magic, really... but at least he never saw me expelled. Died, see, in me second year..." (GF24)

His mother having abandoned them years earlier, Hagrid is essentially orphaned upon his father’s death (GF23).

Timeline Notes

All we know is that Hagrid's father died during his second year (GF24), so it's equally possible that his death was in fall or winter of 1941 or spring of 1942.
