1944 ~ 2013
Klaus Wagner left us on January 16, 2013, after an eight-month battle with cancer. Born in Annaberg, Germany, September 18, 1944, to Erhard and Marianne Langheinrich Wagner. Klaus emigrated from Germany to the U.S. with his parents and siblings in 1953. The family enjoyed three years in Gunnison, Utah before moving to Salt Lake City. Klaus graduated from East High School in 1962, and served in the
National Guard. He served a 2½ year LDS mission to Austria. Klaus' life was full of highs and lows. He was a sportscaster on TV in some of the biggest national markets, and locally with channels 2 and 4. Some great clips of his work can be viewed on YouTube, at
. After that career, he worked just as hard in counseling wayward youth and was a dependable commercial truck driver. He had a testimony of his Savior Jesus Christ that he never denied, and a great knowledge and love for the LDS Church.
Klaus is survived by Gerhild (Tyler) Smith, Boise ID, Christian Wagner, Mebane, NC, and Joan (Gale) Francis, Sandy, UT. He was preceded in death by his parents, and brother, Steven. The family wishes to thank CNS Hospice, and Avalon Valley Rehabilitation, for many hours of service, kindness, and friendship.
As a final gesture he has donated his body to science. Please donate to the
