Obituary

David Lee Van Wagner, age 75, of Blythewood SC, passed away on December 3, 2022 after battling cancer and heart disease. He was born on August 8, 1947 to Irving and Helen Van Wagner in Hudson, NY. Dave, a proud veteran of the Army, completed two tours in Vietnam with a total service of 33 years of service. He retired as a Master Sergeant. Upon retirement, Dave spent his time hunting and restoring his old 1965 Ford truck. 

Dave married Sylvia “Dale” Van Wagner and they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this year. They had 2 children, Deke and Stephanie.

 

 

Dave is survived by his loving wife Dale Van Wagner; children, Deke & Erica Van Wagner, Todd & Stephanie Sheets; sister and brother in law, Mark & Karen Dixon. 

One of his favorite things was to brag on his grandchildren. He is survived by the following: McKinley Sheets (15), Arden Van Wagner (11) & Hannah Sheets (9). And, although not his direct grandchildren, he loved Ben Pearson (16) & Hailey Pearson (12) like they were.

 

A Special thanks to Larry & Carrie Rampey, our special friends, who have supported Dave & Dale in so many ways. 

 

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to USC School of Medicine. After retirement, Dave worked there as a standardized patient for many years. He really enjoyed helping future physicians learn the ropes.
