I was a student of Mr. Waggoner at Sunrise School . As well as teaching our course study, he majored on morality and civility and generally how to be a decent human being, all without being judgemental or angry at our failures. As such a young man at the time, he was an amazingly able teacher and a wonderful person. I add my condolences to the family.

Mr. Waggoner was my fifth grade teacher at Hatton McCredie. He had very pretty handwriting! He was very kind. I also had the pleasure of working with him later at Gaspers. So sorry for your loss! Such a Wonderful man.
