My parents Bob and Aliene Thornton went to church with Mr. Wagoner. They always spoke of what a fine man he was and enjoyed serving beside him in Raceway Ministries, Grace Network, Community Meals and various other things at Chatham Heights Baptist Church. May his life be an inspiration to us all in how to serve here on earth. Many prayers to his family, friends, and church members.
