Lt. Col. (RET) Robert (Bob) Floyd Wagner, 66 of Whispering Pines, passed away suddenly on September 20, 2015 at his home.
He was born on October 16, 1948 in Aberdeen, Maryland to the late Floyd and Catherine Wagner.

He was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He had strong faith and amazing values which he passed along to his children. His love for his country led to a successful career in the United States Army, and after serving for 21 years, he retired in 1988 as a lieutenant colonel. He was the recipient of many military awards and medals including the Bronze Star for his service in Viet Nam. In 2010 he retired from another successful career as a North Carolina magistrate. In past years he was active in the Republican Men's Club and recently reconnected with the Masons. He enjoyed music, and was an avid runner, finishing two Marine Corps marathons. He is loved by many and will be forever in our hearts.
