Victor Francis Wagner

May 4, 1964 ~ March 26, 2018 (age 53)

Victor Wagner, age 53, passed away on Monday, March 26, 2018 in Carlsbad New Mexico. Originally from Menasha, Wisconsin, Victor was born to Gerald and Elaine Wagner on May 4, 1964, the 2nd of 4 children. 

Victor attended Menasha High School in the class of 1982. He pursued and had a long career in automotive sales, repair, and restoration. He also carried certification as an electrician. Victor held positions as a leading salesperson at Russ Darrow Chrysler Plymouth in Appleton, WI, and Mueller Chrysler Plymouth in Oshkosh WI. Victor also owned his own automobile dealership in Janesville WI., and worked for Sears Auto Center in Madison, WI. His love of automobiles, his skill, and his commitment to quality, and the customer, supported his success in the automotive industry.

Victor lived in Astor Florida for twelve years, moving to Carlsbad New Mexico in 2014, where he lived with his life partner, Nathan Gallegos, until his death. Because of Nathan's love and care, Victor was able to remain at home through his final days.

Victor made friends easily, was loved by many, and stood up for what he believed in. He lived his life without regret and will not be soon forgotten. His name and his stories will continue well past his days in the conversations of others.

Victor is survived by his life-partner. Nathan; sisters Debbie Wagner (Spouse, Veronica Flower), Diana Wagner, and Sandy Wagner, as well as Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins in the Wagner-Fischer family, where he held the rank of Cousin # 37.

Victor was preceded in death by his grandparents, his Mother, Elaine M. Wagner, and his Father, Gerald A. Wagner.

Per Victor’s wishes, there will be no services, and a private burial will take place in a family plot in Wisconsin.

Appreciation is extended to the staff at Denton-Wood Funeral Home and Tim Scott, in Carlsbad, NM for their compassion and care, and Leammrich Funeral Home in Menasha, WI for assisting the family.

The thanks and gratitude for the care that Nathan provided to Victor is without measure.
