ObituaryShare A Memory

C. Wayne Waggoner passed away on September 6, 2017.  He was born on September 19, 1944 in Pyatt, Arkansas, to John Claud and Mertle Pauline (Andrews) Waggoner.  Wayne graduated from Wapato High School in 1962 and attended Yakima Business College where he earned a degree in accounting.  He was in the U.S. Army from 1967 to 1972 where he served in Vietnam.  Wayne then made his career in management until 1995 when he became an insurance adjuster until his retirement.

Wayne married his soulmate, Kathey, in 1992 and they were proud to say they never fought once while they were together.  He was a loving husband who cherished the time they spent together.

Wayne loved his grandchildren and spent many hours cheering for them during sporting events.  He enjoyed singing and was the favorite storyteller during sleepovers at Papa and Grandma’s house.  He always had something sweet tucked away to give the kids just in case they were hungry.  He was also known to enjoy a goody or two himself.
Wayne was a life-long car enthusiast who enjoyed buying and fixing them up as a hobby.  He was extremely proud of his yellow Corvette and spent many happy hours behind the wheel.
He lived a life of service and was always willing to help anyone in need.  Wayne was a man of integrity and had the biggest heart of anyone you’d ever met. 
He is survived by his wife of 25 years, Kathey; his sons Christopher (Becky), Chad (Marla), Corey (Karine), and Adam (Melissa) Waggoner and Travis (Angela) Cyr and Ryan (Lacey) Cyr; daughters Jill Anderson and Amy (Robert) Pangburn; sisters Neveh Bolen and Ruth Farrens; brothers Larry and Ray Waggoner; 26 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, Jewell Waggoner, and his sisters, Wanda Faulk, Barbara Halls, and Betty Brown.
The Funeral Service is planned for Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at 12:00PM, with visitation beginning at 11:00AM, both at Brookside Funeral Home (500 W Prospect, Moxee, WA 98936), followed by a Graveside Service with Full Military Honors at Terrace Heights Memorial Park.  A Reception in the Brookside Gardens will follow the Graveside Service.
