George E. Wagner, 90, of Plantsville, passed away on July 14, 2022 at the HOCC in New Britain surrounded by his family. He had been the loving husband of Cynthia (Giguere) Wagner for 69 years.
George was born in Forestville, CT on May 8, 1932 to the late Edward and Frances (Brackett) Wagner. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. George retired from Eastern Plastics, where he worked as a computer programmer for many years.
George loved his shopping outings with his wife Cynthia. The day after Christmas they would begin their search for the perfect presents. Their shopping excursions were like a hobby and lasted throughout the year. He enjoyed all sports and was an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox, New York Giants, UConn Women’s Basketball and car racer, Joey Lagano. George also had passion for cars, especially his 1967 Cadillac Coup Deville. He was known for having a garage that was tastefully decorated with pictures and memorabilia that highlighted his love of cars and sports. He will be remembered as a hard worker, a man of his word, a trusted friend and a loving husband, father and grandfather.
In addition to his wife Cynthia, George is survived by his son, Russell Wagner and his wife Susan of Glastonbury and 2 daughters, Nancy Maigarie and her husband Stanley of Southington and Darlene Dudac and her husband Charles of Plantsville and 6 grandchildren, Kendra Pheasant (Jason), Andrew Maigarie (Natalie), Justin and Jason Wagner, Lauren Sandagata (Joseph) and Nicholas Cermola and 7 great-grandchildren.
