Douglas Dwayne Wagner passed away peacefully on Monday, June 3, 2019 at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital at the age of 82 years. Born on September 21, 1936 to Jess and Rosa Wagner on the farm near Senate, Saskatchewan, he was the youngest of five children.
He is survived by the love of his life and wife of 62 years Jeannine; his two sons, Clint and Clayton (Christie); grandchildren, Kiaya and Piper; and great grandchildren, Sebastian and Oliver; double cousin, Keith Wagner (Mary) and Iva Jean Wagner; sister-in-law, Addie Wagner; brother-in-law, John Railton (Lynn); sister-in-law, Jacqueline Webster (Jim); and numerous nieces, nephews and single and double cousins, too numerous to name.
He was predeceased by his parents, Jess and Rosa; brothers, Dale Wagner (Eve), Martin Wagner (Dorothy); sisters, Mary Messmer (Dominick), Norma Popick (Stan); double cousins, Jack Wagner (Jean), Maloa Stewart (Bob), Harry Wagner (Elenoir), Sharon Geiger (Joe) and Ken Wagner; single cousins, Frankie Wagner and Mildred Lea (Jake); brother-in-law, David Railton (Elizabeth); and sister-in-law, Marie Thorton (Lynn).
Dad loved ranching. Anything to do with animals, from breaking horses, calving the cows, branding and roundup. He took his education at Zentner and Senate schools. The teacher in grade 8 agreed to pass him if he promised to quit school. He worked on the family ranch for several years then he met and married a black haired little french girl who surprisingly was a teacher. Jeannine and Douglas were together for almost 63 years of marriage, moving from place to place for jobs and ultimately purchasing a ranch at Senate only 6 miles from the family farm.
He participated in many of the groups and clubs such as the PFRA committee, Rink committee, 4-H and the sales ring board.
He drove school bus for many years and had a special commentary on the roads leading to and from the hills. He enjoyed the people but found winter much less stressful when he moved to the Govenlock route.
He retired from ranching in 1997 and moved to Medicine Hat where he started a new chapter, golfing, bowling and fishing with Stan. He made numerous excursions to Vegas, Moose Jaw, Atlantic Canada, England and points in the United States.
He enjoyed going out to Clint's ranch to work with cows and horses and to thin out the ever-present varmints. He purchased a horse for Piper. He had Piper's mare bred. It was great for Dad as he always thought that foals were the 2nd most beautiful things on earth, of course Mom was #1.
A Celebration of Doug's Life will be held at the MAPLE CREEK ARMOURY, 502 Marsh Street Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, on Saturday, June 15th, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. A private interment will take place at a later date at the Consul Cemetery.
