H. Bert Wagoner, Jr., 89, died at Valley View Village in Des Moines, IA on January 9, 2020, due to dementia. He was born May 9, 1930 in Des Moines to H. Bert Wagoner, Sr. and Elsie Albach Wagoner.

Bert loved life, his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and his wonderful family. After graduation from Bloomington, IL High School, he served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. He graduated from DeVry Tech (Chicago) and attended Drake University. Bert married his faithful and loving wife, Beverly Lovell, in April 1956.

Bert is survived by his wife, Bev; two children, Valerie (Dan) Hagman and Timothy (Rhonda) Wagoner; five grandchildren, Amanda (Bill) Pitts, Matthew (Megan) Hagman, Amber (Tyler) Snethen, Brandon Wagoner, Michael (Rachael) Hagman; nine great grandchildren, Christopher, Spencer, Ethan and Savannah Pitts, Tatum and Tucker Snethen, Lydia and Mason Hagman and Declan Hagman; and two sisters, Jackie Griffiths of Weldon, IA and Carol Bogan of Georgia. Preceding him in death were his parents and brothers-in-law, Mervin Cornelius and Bill Griffiths.
