Obituary of Donald Stuart Wagner

DONALD “Don” STUART WAGNER, age 100, a caring, kind, generous, humorous husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and friend to many left us on November 24, 2023.  Don was born on April 22, 1923, the son of William E. and Mary Martha (Dorsey) Wagner in Baltimore, Maryland.                                    

After serving in the United States Army during WWII, Don met and married the love of his life, Catharine Edith McCurdy in 1948.  They built their own home in Riviera Beach, MD, raised their family and resided there until after Don retired from The Baltimore Gas and Electric Co.  They then moved to Cambridge, Maryland to enjoy the peacefulness of the bay, nature, making new friends and volunteering at the Blackwater Wildlife Refuge.  In retirement, Don was also able to continue his love of woodworking, in which family and friends were beneficiaries of the beautiful results.                                                                  

Don remained in Cambridge after losing Catharine on August 23, 2009, until 2014.  He then moved to The Seabrook, a retirement community in Hilton Head Island, SC to be closer to family.  At The Seabrook, he continued to enjoy his love of woodworking.  Along with a friend, he constructed and donated many Little Library boxes which were filled to provide several thousand books to children on and around Hilton Head Island.

Donald Wagner is survived by his children, Donald (Tricia Keane) Wagner of Wilmington. NC, and Cathy (Hap) Todd of Hilton Head Island, SC.  He was the proud grandfather of Jeff (Cindy) Todd, Mike (Jean) Todd, Ryan (Melissa) Wagner, and Allison (Brett) Lenz.  He had nine great grandchildren, Blake, Mackenzie, Brianna, Parker, Kendall, Ivy, Vance, Madelyn, and Olivia.  He will be missed greatly.

Don will return home to Baltimore where a graveside service will be held at New Cathedral Cemetery, 4300 Old Frederick Road (CC174) on 11/30/2023 @ 11:00am.
