Mr. Aaron Jay Wagner

Aaron Jay Wagner, age 48, passed away March 2, 2011. He was born January 21, 1963 in Zanesville, OH. He attended West Muskingum High School through his freshman year then his family moved to Crestwood , KY. There, he graduated from Oldham County High School in 1981. He went on to diesel mechanic school in Indianapolis, where he graduated two years later. In 1983 he was hired by Bob Evans Farms as a diesel mechanic for their fleet vehicles. This is the only company for whom Aaron worked, as he worked his way up to Ohio Transportation Manager.
Aaron touched many lives at work and at home. He enjoyed working on anything that involved a motor, including a short stint with a NASCAR team where he volunteered his services just because he loved the thrill of being involved with the best of the best in the universe of professional engine mechanics.
He was always fast to offer his help wanting nothing in return, he had a smile for everyone, and he was witty and jovial, always making whoever he was with feel as though they had known him all their lives. He was loved and will be missed dearly by family and friends.
He is survived by his wife Jenny, his children Tonya Sheets, Jason Wagner, and Wendy Wagner, his grandchildren Neveah Grace and Ryan Wagner, his parents Bill and Marlene Wagner, his brothers Chris Wagner, Barry Wagner, Kyle Wagner, and Tom Yourke, as well as, many nieces, nephews, cousins, and in-laws.
A celebration of life service will be held 1:00 p.m. Saturday at the Victory Hill Church, 4000 Coonpath Rd., Carroll, Ohio 43112 with Pastor Chris Varnell officiating. The family will receive friends from 3-8 p.m. Friday at the church and from 11:00 a.m. until time of service on Saturday at the church.
In lieu of flowers, the family would like contributions be made to Riverside/Neuroscience, in care of Ohio Health Foundation, 180 E. Broad St., Columbus, Ohio 43215 in Aaron's memory.

I just wanted to say I am so sorry for your loss and that Aaron was a great person and a great dad. I am so happy to have had the chance to meet him and spend time with him. I had a blast with him at the wedding of Jason and Cassie and if the family needs anything please just ask.

We just wanted to express to Aaron's family how terribly sorry we are for their loss. Aaron was Chris' boss at Bob Evans, and he always treated people with respect and took the time to listen when someone asked him to. I had the pleasure of meeting Aaron and his wife a couple of times at the annual safety banquet, and they both always took the time to meet everyone and and have conversations about our families as well. Aaron will be greatly missed,but never forgotten.
