Tribute & Message From The Family


John W. Wagner of Newtown, Pa., formerly of Philadelphia, suddenly passed at his home on February 18, 2022, at the age of 54. Dear son of Dolores (nee Bassetti) and the late Mark Wagner. Beloved husband of Cheryl A. (Condo). Loving father of Capri, Kristian, Kyle, and Dominc. Dear brother of Mark, Joseph (Tracie), and Monica Decker (Matthew). Son-in-law of Anne Condo, and the late Joseph. Brother-in-law of Joseph Condo (Melissa), Maria Imle (Bernie), Janine Zatyko (Ron), Michele Kelly (Chris), Jeffrey Condo (Kim), and Dana Condo. Nephew to Arlene Ibbotson. Life-long friend to Richard Coyle. Also survived by many nieces, nephews, and grand nieces and nephews; numerous friends, and his fun loving companion Bandit.
John's utmost priority and motivation in life was his family. He coached each of his children in sports with memories that will last them forever. His hobbies included being a most admired, inspiring, and dedicated coach to children in Newtown Baseball, Northampton Football and St. Andrew's Soccer. John taught his players more than just the sport and had a niche for developing each player's talents. Every player played, and it was important to him to teach them life lessons, win or lose. His greatest advice being to fight through adversity, no matter how harsh life can be or how many times you fail. He also enjoyed vacationing with family in North Wildwood, Cape May, Knoebels and Disney World. An avid Eagles Fan, John also loved fishing, hunting, hiking, playing golf, card games, and entertaining family and friends. "He had a larger than life personality" and you knew when "Johnny Wags" was in the room. The world surely skipped a beat when he passed. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
