Gansevoort – Frederick L. “Poppy” Wagner Jr., 77, formerly of Altamont, passed away on Tuesday, July 2nd, 2019, at Glens Falls Hospital after a valiant battle with cancer.
The things Fred enjoyed most were camping and spending time with his family and friends, especially his beloved grandchildren. Nothing made him happier than cheering on his grandson Michael race modified or Remington racing motorcycles. He was especially proud of his grandson Dayton on enlisting in the Army. His granddaughters, Kelsey and Morgan were always taking him on an adventure – even dress shopping. He was proud of all of them and their accomplishments. He loved to laugh and will be remembered for his fun loving personality.
Fred’s family would like to extend a special thank you to the C.R. Wood Cancer Center and Glens Falls Hospital for the outstanding care and compassion that they showed he and his family during his time there.
Special thanks to Dr. Umbreen Rozell and his favorite nurse, Barb Moehringer. Their care , dedication and frequent laughter was greatly appreciated.
Fred leaves behind his children, Barbara Wagner, Fred Wagner III and Kimberly Wagner-Fitzgerald (Scott), his cherished grandchildren, Dayton, Kelsey, Michael, Morgan and Remington, two great grandchildren, Andi Belle and Ember and his faithful K-9 companion, Pudge. Fred was predeceased by the love of his life, wife of 44 years, Patricia M. Wagner
