Life Story

Mr. Robert J. “Bob” Wagoner, 68, of Elkhart, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 3, 2022 at 9:30 am at his home. He was born in Elkhart on September 23, 1954 to the late Earl D. Wagoner and Mildred E. (Hosler) Wagoner-Youdbulis. Besides his parents, Bob is preceded in death by his step-father William Youdbulis and sister-in-law Linda Wagoner.

Also surviving are daughters Shana (Kevin) Stout of Niles, MI, and Chrissy McGrew and Lindsay (Andrew) Gibney, both of Elkhart; brothers Bill (Patty) Wagoner and Dale (Jenny) Wagoner of Elkhart and Ron Wagoner of South Bend; his step-mother Betty Wagoner of Oregon, Ohio; grandchildren Christian, Camron, Nathan, Elizabeth, Alana, David, Hali and Dylan; great grandchildren Kail, Lilith and Sophia, and a loving host of extended family and friends, including his self proclaimed favorite niece Amy Wagoner of Elkhart.

Billings Funeral Home and Cremation Services of Elkhart are assisting Bob’s family with cremation arrangements and burial will follow at Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens in Osceola.

Bob was honorably discharged from the US Army where he served at Ft. Benning, Georgia and at Ft. Knox, Kentucky as a helicopter and armored vehicle armorer. For many years he was the owner operator of Wagoner tree services. He was a quiet, private fellow for the most part but definitely enjoyed being able to kick back and hang out with his friends. Growing up he enjoyed participating in many sports, including swimming, track, and football. He was a huge Notre Dame football fan and enjoyed watching the games. He was very altruistic and always found himself trying to help someone out of a dire situation. He was also very artistically inclined and loved to draw, as well as go fishing and having a good laugh.
