Obituary of Ron Wagoner

Please share a memory of Ron to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Our Savior, Jesus Christ, has destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. Let us remember with thanksgiving that God has done through his servant, Ronald Lee Wagoner.


 Ronald was born in Clarinda, Iowa on April 21st, 1944 to Ralph and Lorna Wagoner. He was baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit on May 7th, 1944.  On March 30th, 1958, he was confirmed in the Christian faith and received the promised gift of the Lord's life-giving body and blood. Ronald was joined together in holy matrimony to Mary Lou Reddel on June 16th, 1967.  He was blessed with three children, Lisa, Tracy, and Heather. 


Ronald served God by teaching at St Paul's in Cleveland, OH, and then served Him at Concordia College in CIMS (Center for Indian Ministry and Studies).  Ronald was blessed with musical talents and woodworking abilities.  In His time, the Lord grants us life on earth and calls us home to heaven.

On March 20th, 2022, God called Ronald home.  Blessed be the name of the Lord.  We give thanks through Jesus Christ our Lord that Ronald knew and loved God and is now home with God.


Ronald is survived by wife, Mary Lou, daughters, Lisa (Ed) Espinosa, Tracy (Jim) Jordan, and Heather McCormick; God-children Naomi Fertig and Andrew Meyer; grandchildren, Charity(Austin) Schafer, Josh(Annie) Espinosa, Jesse and Faith Espinosa, Samuel, Christian, Anna, Kathryn, Steven and Joel Jordan; Hannah, Emma, and Lillian McCormick; great grandchildren Piper and Willow Schafer and Lucy Espinosa.
