Lawrence G. Wagner

April 9, 1932 — January 22, 2024

Lawrence G. Wagner, known affectionately as Larry, passed away peacefully on January 22, 2024, at St. Joseph Manor in Meadowbrook, Pa. He was born on April 9, 1932, in Philadelphia, PA. Larry and his beloved wife, the late Dorothy (Brandt) were married for 50 years.

 Larry is survived by his loving children, Susan (Anthony) Munafo, Cathleen (Robert) Geary, Robert (Rosemary) Wagner, and Lorri (Robert) Miller. He was a devoted Pop-Pop to Steven (Jenn), Melissa (Stephen), Paula (Brian), Kimberly (Andrea), and Brian (Jacquelyn), and a doting Opa to Ashton, Silas, Maddie, Gabe, Jaxon, Ben, and Declan. He was preceded in death by his sister, Jacqueline Wagner Olson, and his grandsons, Michael Geary and Zachary Miller.

 Larry attended Northeast High School in Philadelphia and later pursued a career as a Draftsman/Supervisor at Burroughs/Unisys, where he worked until his retirement. While raising his family, he and his neighbors founded the Elmwood Park Boys and Girls Club in Southwest Phila, providing many lasting memories for area families.

 In addition to his career, Larry enjoyed trips to Florida to visit his mom and sister, and any time spent at the Jersey shore. Listening to music and watching the Eagles were favorite pastimes at home.  He loved sharing time with his family, centered around food during Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and late summer crabfests. He was a proud member of the Vereinigung Erzgebirge German club, where he loved playing pinochle on Thursday nights. Larry also found great pleasure in walking with the Liberty Bell Wanderers weekly and on trips across the country. He formed close friendships along the way, was president for two years, and loved all of the activities involved with the club. 

 Funeral services will be private.

In memory of Larry, donations can be made to St. Joseph Manor Nursing Home, 521 Moredon Rd., Huntington Valley, 19006 or Liberty Bell Wanderers, c/o Carol Evans/treasurer, 16 Church Rd, Horsham Pa, 19044. 

 Larry will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all those whose lives he touched. May his legacy of love, laughter, and kindness to others continue to inspire us all.
