Gregory R. Wagner

December 10, 1949 — June 5, 2024

St. Paul, MN

Greg Robert Wagner, age 74, was born December 10, 1949, and passed away at home on June 5, 2024.

Preceded in death by his father, Robert; mother, Geraldine; her second husband, H. Allen Mann; and sister, Ann Dedman.

Survived by wife of 53 years, Katie; son, Steve (Brenda); daughter, Tracy (Chris) Gatten; grandchildren, Nathan, Abigael, Kelan and Arietta (to whom he was known as Papa Mustang); sister, Joan (Wyman) Detzler; brother-in-law, Ed Dedman; many nieces and nephews.

Greg was always a mechanic. One of his earliest projects was named "The Frame" which he built in high school with his best friend. He also had a '59 Ford with a 4-on-the-floor he drag raced on University Ave. His most recent labor of love was a 1980 Ford Mustang Cobra. Greg had a 30+ year long career with MnDOT as a heavy equipment mechanic. After years of "pulling on wrenches", in his retirement he became a computer geek, rebuilding computers and building an extensive music library he called his "suitcase full of music".

As Greg would always end his emails: "May the Force Be With You."
