Uncle Hen was a real hero that our grandson Henry can always look up to. We loved to hear him talk about his experiences in submarines in the Sea of Japan. He was fearless but quiet, loved his family and always had a smile for everyone. We will miss you, dear Uncle Henry.

Our deepest sympathy to the entire Wagoner family! We know what a very special man and grandfather he was to you all! I still remember seeing his smiling face at almost every high school basketball game cheering Drea on from the stands! Sending love to all - The Bajek Family
