Obituary Condolences

July 25, 1949 - Feb 27, 2014 OKLAHOMA CITY John David Wagner, 64, left this earth for the big baseball field in the sky on Thursday, February 27, 2014. John is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Jonie, of the home; son, Jeff and wife Raye; daughter, Kristi and husband Christopher McIntyre; grandchildren: Jordan, Megan, Chance, Ethyn, Sheridyn, Preston, and Shaylyn Wagner; and the light of his life, Coleman Wagner McIntyre; mother, Ruby Anne Vandemeer; brothers, Bob and wife Ginny and Rick and wife Leslie; stepbrother, Steve Vandemeer; stepsister, Stacey and husband Blake Anderson; and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, extended family and friends. John was preceded in death by his father, Jack E Wagner; stepfather, Henry T Vandemeer; and stepbrothers, Stuart and Stanley Vandemeer. John was a past master of Yukon Lodge #90 and a member of Myrtle Lodge #145. He was a member of the Guthrie Scottish Rite and the York Rite. John was a charter member of the Tall Cedars of Lebanon. He was a member of the India Shrine and a member of the Red Cross of Constantine. He proudly served 16 years on the Board of Directors for the Masonic Charity Foundation and was the accountant for the Grand Lodge of Oklahoma. John was a patriotic veteran who was very proud of the 18-month tour he served in Vietnam with the 101st Airborne Division. John returned home with many honors about which he was very modest. John and his wife, Jonie, owned their own accounting practice for over 25 years that they proudly handed to their daughter in 2010. At that time, John took on the "greatest job in the world" of being "Grandpa." He and his "buddy pal" Coleman went on many "adventures" together, and being with Coleman was John's favorite hobby. John also was an avid baseball fan, and when he could be at the ballpark with Coleman, there was nowhere else he wanted to be. A memorial service will be held on March 29, 2014, 10:30 a.m. at the Myrtle Masonic Lodge, 125 SE 89th Street, Oklahoma City. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Children's Transportation Fund of the Shriner's Hospital, 3601 NW 36th St, Oklahoma City, OK 73112; or The Wounded Warrior Project, P.O. Box 758517, Topeka, KS 66675. Arrangements are under the direction of the John M. Ireland Funeral Home, Moore, OK.
