Keith Wagner


Keith Wagner, 72, of Marion, died Oct. 16, 2018, at UnityPoint Health-St. Luke's Hospital. He was born July 25, 1946, to Roman and Gladys Wagner in Spillville, Iowa.
Keith loved his children and grandchildren more than anything in the world. He dedicated his life to them and was always at every school activity, athletic event, and was their biggest fan and statistician. He had a great passion for coaching his two sons and grandson in sports. He especially loved baseball and, in 1966, had tryouts with the Twins and White Sox. We are all thankful that he witnessed the Cubs win a World Series! Father's Day golf outings along with so many other great memories will be missed. We love you, Dad!!!
Keith was very proud of being a friend of Bill W.
Keith is survived by his sons, Justin (Melissa) and Jordan (Laura); grandchildren, Erika, Mason, Wren and Nashua; sister, Colleen (Paul) Hageman; several nieces and nephews; and the mother of his children Teresa (Wagner) Anderson.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and children, Nathan John and Erica Ann.
A visitation will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018, at Cedar Memorial Chapel of Memories, with a funeral service following at 2 p.m. Interment will take place at a later date.
