Charles David Wagner

March 3, 2018

Charles David Wagner, or Dave to his Chicago family, died Saturday morning, 3/3/2018. Dave was loved and respected, and meant so much to each of them: He was so many things to so many people; a son and brother, a husband and father, a grandparent and uncle, a friend and confidant. Dave came to us from Tennessee and was part of our Chicago "McDonagh" family in Chicago, for only two short years. Two years in which he became part of our hearts and was an integral part of our team and "family" -- we lost him after a brave battle few of us could even imagine, and his courage inspires us. An intelligent, capable and hardworking man, with a family broader than blood, Dave was an avid "biker" and staunch Harley Davidson rider and much loved. We will all miss his smile and charm, his laugh and wit, and everything that made him our Demo-Dave. Visitation before bidding farewell to our Friend, before sending him home to rest will be Wednesday, from 4 to 9 pm at Cooney Funeral Home located at 625 Busse Hwy. in Park Ridge.
