Dean Wagner Jr. 1945 - 2018     

Dean Wagner Jr
, 73, passed away Dec. 22, 2018, surrounded by his family. He was born April 1, 1945, to Dean and Lillian (Wallace) Wagner and lived most of his life in Wadsworth.

In 1963 he entered the Army and was stationed in Germany.   In 1968 he joined Ironworkers Local 17 and retired after 36 years.   He took great pride in being able to say " I helped build that building".

Dean loved anything that had wheels; cars, motorcycles, snowmobiles and spent hours cleaning and polishing them.   He also enjoyed hunting and especially the 22 years of fishing at his beloved Camp Sylvestre in Quebec.

Dean is survived by his wife, Barb (Alford), of 50 years;  son Dustin and his wife Allison;  and our pride and joy GEMMA.  Last, but not least, Sammi girl, his loved and spoiled schnauzer.  We miss you.

Services have already taken place.  Donations to Hospice at Summa Akron City Hospice.
