Ron was raised by the Pembina River in Lunnford, Alberta. Ron & Annie (nee Henderson) were married in 1974 and moved to Athabasca in 1977 to start Riverside Machine & Welding Ltd. Ron apprenticed many young men over the past 37 years. Athabasca was great place to raise a family with the large farming and industrial community to service. In 1985, they bought what was to be just a small recreational acreage farm, but the farmer in him turned it into more livestock and land. Athabasca was definitely home, as it also provided all of his favorite recreational opportunities to do with family and friends. The camping, quadding, snowmobiling, the fishing and hunting could not equal anywhere else. Many times there where 3 generations joining in the fun. Many of the shop’s customers and friends speak of challenges they brought to him over the years and how he somehow always found a way to make it work. Friends, family and neighbors speak highly of the man who loved life to the fullest. How he worked hard and how he played hard. Ron was a great family man. His 7 grandchildren will miss his delight in them. They miss their “Grampa”! Ron is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Annie; his three sons: Kevin(Angela) Wagner of Athabasca, Michael(Brandie) Wagner of Calgary, Travis(Micki) Wagner of Calgary; seven grandchildren: Rylan, Bethannie, Avis, DezRaye, Vespe, Harrisan, and Wallace; his brother and three sisters: Harvey(Edith) Wagner, Carol(Warren) Johnson, Esther(Arvid) Rabel, Rita McKibbin. Ron was predeceased by his parents, Alex and Katie Wagner and his brother, Wilbert Wagner. A Funeral Service was held on Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. at the Athabasca Regional Multiplex with Pastor Al Platt officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Athabasca Flips Gymnastics Club Building Fund. Athabasca Community Chapel in care of arrangements (780) 675- 3996. 110.
