I had the privilege of knowing Fred as my elmer. Before he became my elmer, I had the honor of knowing him as my father-in-law. He was one of the best people I've ever known in life. The following is taken from his obituary: Clyde “Fred” Fredrick Wagner Jr. passed away peacefully on Dec. 14, 2017, at the age of 70. Fred was born in Eureka, on Oct. 28, 1947. He spent his childhood in McMinnville, Oregon, and moved to Santa Ana in his teenage years. There, he met his sweetheart Darlene, and they were later married on Jan. 24, 1969. Fred went on to study pharmaceuticals at the University of Arizona in Tucson and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy in 1976. He has worked for several companies over the years, always loving being a “drug pusher.” He relocated to Crescent City the beginning of 1990. Fred enjoyed many hobbies during the course of his life. He was a dedicated fan of the NHRA, loving the power and speed of the cars. He enjoyed singing in choirs, and was most recently a member of the Pacific Guild Chorale. He also had a love of HAM radios and was the president of the Del Norte Amateur Radio Club. After retiring, Fred found a passion in wood turning, winning awards for his beautiful wooden bowls. Everyone who met Fred will remember his great sense of humor, compassionate heart, and loving nature. He was a dedicated husband, father, and grandfather. He was loved by many, and will be greatly missed. He is survived by his sister Pam Infanger, his wife of 49 years Darlene Wagner, their seven children Allison Hensley, Jessica Bolten, Fred Wagner III, Erik Wagner, Bethany McAvoy, Celeste Lovaas, and Ethan Wagner, as well as 11 grandchildren. Fred was preceded in death by his parents Eureka and Clyde Wagner, Sr.
