David Willmer Wagner was born July 8, 1938, at his grandparent’s farm in Winthrop. He was the son of Henry and Regina (Schuette) Wagner. Mr. Wagner was baptized as an infant July 31, 1938, by Rev. Kowalski at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Stewart and later confirmed in his faith as a youth April 6, 1952, by Rev. A. Schira at Peace Lutheran Church in Winthrop. He received his education in Winthrop, graduating with the Winthrop High School Class of 1957.
On April 29, 1967, David was united in marriage to Marjorie Pomplun by Rev. Walther Kallestad at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Gaylord. David and Marjorie made their home in rural Brownton and New Auburn. Their life was blessed with three children, Jonathan, Jeannine and Daniel. David and Marjorie shared over 51 years of marriage.

Mr. Wagner enjoyed hunting, fishing and his favorite activity, camping. He loved spending time with his friends and family, especially his grandchildren.
