    Rob, Kim, and all members of the Wagner Family:

    It has been my pleasure to have gotten to know many of you over all the years of living next door to Rob and Kim. It has always been evident to me that Mr. Wagner Sr. was a devoted family man who deeply loved his wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. How wonderful that God allowed him such a long life to enjoy his family.

    As you prepare to say your final goodbyes this week, remember all the good times you have shared as a family because of the upbringing he provided as you grew into adulthood. I will be praying for all of you but most especially for Mrs. Wagner as she adjusts to life without the love of her life beside her. I know he will be missed. Dana Pierson

    Richard was a friend of my parents, Dale and Virginia Lauderbaugh in the Pittsburgh Region of the HCCA. He was a warm person and devoted to the old car hobby. I talked to him by phone several months ago and he lamented that he could not go to the Oakmont Car show this year. My condolences to his family.
