William R. “Ron” Wagner passed away peacefully due to natural causes on December 26, 2023, in LaFayette, Alabama. He was born on February 20, 1952, in Fort Riley, Kansas.

Ron proudly served his country in the United States Army, a testament to his dedication and patriotism. Following his military service, he pursued further education at Opelika Tech, where he earned certificates in both computer science and electronics. His expertise led him to a fulfilling career with Micro Services, where as a computer technician, he played a pivotal role in designing, building, and implementing networks for textile mills.

Ron was a man of diverse interests and hobbies. His passion for life was evident in his enthusiasm for Auburn football. Ron’s adventurous spirit soared as he indulged in remote-controlled plane flying, a hobby that connected him with fellow enthusiasts as a member of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). The skies were not his only playground, as he also explored the depths of the ocean through scuba diving and experienced the thrill of bungee jumping, always seeking new heights and depths.
