James A. “Jim” Wagner, 68, of Lebanon, passed away surrounded by his loving family on Saturday, July 23, 2022, at WellSpan Good Samaritan Hospital.
He was born on Sunday, March 28, 1954, to the late Elsie I. Sholley nee Wagner in Lebanon.
He was a very proud veteran of the United States Army. Anyone who knew him could tell right away that he was a die-hard Miami Dolphins fan. Whether it was his jacket, hat, slippers or the pillow he sat on… it was aqua and orange. His commitment to being a Dolphins fan never wavered. He was a fan of the Philadelphia Phillies and wrestling as well. He had many friends over the years, from sitting on the front porch, going to places around town, or being a member of many clubs, including the Central Democrat Club. He also enjoyed movies, family outings, summer cookouts, deviling the little kids in the family, and especially loved playing penny poker.
Surviving are wife Terry Fox; son Jason Wagner; brothers David Wagner, and Mark Sholley; sister Faith Sholley; nieces Heather Sholley, and Andrea Dunlap and other nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death, in addition to his mother, stepfather Frank Kline, and brother-in-love Paul Hammer.
