Delmer Dean Wagler was born October 20, 1939, at home in Trenton, Iowa, the son of Alfred Michael and Josephine Marie (Isch) Wagler. He attended grade school in Trenton and graduated from Wayland High School. In December of 1960, he joined the United States Army and served his country for two years in active duty and two years in reserve duty. On April 5, 1964, Delmer was united in marriage to Sharon Schlatter at the Wayland Mennonite Church. Delmer was a salesman and owned and operated Wagler Woodcrafts for over 40 years. He was a member of the Wayland Mennonite Church and enjoyed spending time with his kids and grandkids, fishing, traveling and woodworking. Delmer never knew a stranger and made many friends while attending craft shows.

Survivors include his wife Sharon of Wayland, four children: Kevin (Joan) Wagler of Mt. Pleasant, Carmen Harris of Winfield, Kimberly (LaMar) Fenton of Mt. Union, Curtis (Lori) Wagler of Wayland, 12 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, with number eight on the way, and three brothers: Allen (Lucille) Wagler and Harold Wagler both of Kalona, and Edwin (Joyce) Wagler of Wayland.

Preceding Delmer in death were his parents, a sister Vada (Albert) Reimer, a brother Willis (Jackie) Wagler, and two sisters-in-law: Lorna and Eileen Wagler.

We were neighbors up the street in the 80's and were often invited to come down the street and enjoy a bowl of ice cream with chocolate syrup and peanuts on it. Then, we had to watch Larry Bird and the Celtics. He would hold his little dog Skippy and have plenty to talk about! One thing about Big D, he always had plenty to say! However, Barry says Sharon always got the last word!

My thoughts and prayers to the family. Delmer was a great guy. He always asked me how the cook was when he came in the station.
