Dale F. Wagoner
Dale F. Wagoner, 83, of Rushville, passed away Thursday, September 5, 2019 at The Heritage House of Greensburg, following an extended illness. Dale was born January 11, 1936 in Rush County to the late Bacel "Red" & Opal Marie (Stiers) Wagoner. He was also preceded in death by Frances Kay (Sailor) Wagoner, mother of the children, and one daughter, Susan Kay (Wagoner) Wood.

Dale was a retired owner-operator truck-driver and U.S. Army Veteran. He graduated from Manilla High School in 1954 as valedictorian of his class. He was a member of the Purdue Men's Glee Club while attending Purdue University. Dale enjoyed the outdoors, fishing, shooting, sports, drawing, carpentry, and learning about anything and everything, especially the "old" ways. One of his special joys was riding around Rush County and surrounding counties,
pointing out different homes and barns that he worked on or built either himself or with his father.

Survivors include daughter, Julie and husband David Baker of Rushville; son, Jeff Wagoner and partner Linda Sanders of Shelbyville; two grandchildren, Natessa Wagoner and Brandon Wagoner; two great grandchildren, Payton Harley and Aiden Wagoner; and two brothers and their wives, Gene and Donna Wagoner of Homer, and Earl Lynn and Linda Wagoner of Piqua, Ohio.

Gravesides services will be held Monday September 9, 2019 at 10 AM at Goddard Cemetery, west of Rushville with the Rev. Bill Worrell presiding. Memorial contributions may be made to Our Hospice of South Central Indiana. Arrangements have been entrusted to Burns Funeral Home in Milroy.
