Thurman Ronald WagnerThurman Ronald Wagner “Ronnie”

SOUTH WEBSTER-Thurman Ronald Wagner “Ronnie”, 79, of South Webster, OH, went to his heavenly home on September 11, 2021. Ronnie was a man of God, a father, a grandfather, and loved by many. He was born on May 6, 1942. Our beloved husband, father, brother, pap-pap, great grandpa, uncle paps, and friend. He is preceded in death by his parents John and Lois Wagner: siblings Vera (Libb) Woods, Ena Riggs, Emma (Ruth) Davis, Mabel Craft, Franklin (Johnny) Wagner, Keith Wagner, and Claudia Wagner. Ronnie was a compassionate man who loved tending to his farm, hunting, and loafing. He was always proud of and loved to show off his grandchildren every chance he got. His garden and his family were the highlights of his life, constantly working to help all of them. His generosity was limitless. He was a smart man and he worked hard for everything he had. He didn't judge others or criticize different ways of life, but still worked to help everyone he could. Ronnie was a life-time member of Gephart Baptist Church. He grew up attending, was married there, and brought all of his grandchildren to the services every Sunday.

Condolences to Ron's family and friends. He and Gail have been great examples for others to follow. Ron taught others how to do much; how to work hard and how to take pride in their work. He taught how to give to others, how to care for others and how to work together. He never failed to take the hand of younger ones finding ways for them to help with whatever task he was doing even when it took longer with their assistance. He had a way of making them feel needed and helpful while they learned from him. As all who were lucky to know and love Ron are heartbroken, you have the strength to carry on and teach the next generations what you were taught by him.
