Floyd "Joe" Wagner II, age 72, passed away November 6, 2019 at his home in Howard, Kansas.  He was born December 2, 1946 in Omaha, Nebraska to Floyd and Ada Wagner, growing up with seven brothers and sisters.

After high school, Joe joined the United States Navy, serving four years.  On June 16, 1976, he married Sharon Perkins in Las Vegas, Nevada.  After their marriage, Joe and Sharon lived in California for five years while Joe worked for the railroad.  From there, they moved to Howard, Kansas, and Joe was so impressed with the way all the farmers and ranchers would wave at him in passing, that they decided to stay.  He ultimately fell in love with the people and the area.

Joe worked multiple jobs during his working years in Kansas including the City of Howard Utilities Department and West Elk School District where he retired after several years.  For many of those years, he worked at P&J's Convenience Store as a second job.  It actually was more than a job for him because he loved the people and working there was his way of socializing.

Joe is survived by his wife of 43 years, Sharon; his daughter, Celeste (Jimmy) Babb of Augusta, Kansas; bonus daughters, Mandy (Watts) Lamphier of Augusta, Kansas and Kari (Knox) Galliart of Kansas City; brothers, Jimmy, Willie, Pete, and Phillip; and sisters, Phyllis and Queenie.  He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Donnie.

Memorial service for Joe will be held on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at Countryside Funeral Home in Howard, Kansas.  Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials in Joe's name be made to Harry Hynes Hospice and can be mailed to or left with the funeral home.  Services have been entrusted to Countryside Funeral Home, 206 E. Washington, Howard, Kansas 67349.
