Cleties Wagoner

Cleties Wagoner, 87, Culver, passed away at 11:10 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017, at Life Care Center of Rochester.

On March 5, 1929, he was born in Fulton County at home to Amos and Stella Fay Zolman Wagoner.

Cleties and Beverly Pore were married on July 18, 1959, in the First Christian Church parsonage of Rochester. They shared 57 years of life's adventures together.

Bev and Cleties have been devoted members of Rochester's First Christian Church for more than a half century. With a servant's heart, he and Bev assumed the church's custodial duties for more than 40 years, making sure everything was clean and tidy for the congregation and maintaining the church. Additionally Cleties worked for Rochester Schools as a building tech for 17 years. Much of his time was spent at Riddle School.

As an outdoorsman, Cleties liked the challenge of fishing in the Tippecanoe River. It was there he could enjoy and observe the changing of the seasons and wildlife in their habitats and relax while fishing. He once landed a 26-pound muskie that measured 40 inches in length. It hangs proudly in his living room. Gifted with the use of his hands, Cleties was exceptional in his ability to work with wood. He created many beautiful gifts that he shared with family and special friends. Of course, he is remembered for his sense of humor, hardy laugh and twinkling eyes.

Cleties will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Beverly; two daughters, Brenda Crawford and husband Steven, Tipton, and Cindy McCarty, Rochester; two sons, William Wagoner and wife Kelly, Neenah, Wis., and Stephen Wayne Wagoner and wife Kay, Albertville, Ala.; 12 grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren; a brother, Cleon Wagoner, Plymouth; numerous nieces and nephews; his canine companion, Mitzi, the Shih Tzu; and four feline companions, Freddy, Tammy, Fluffy and Blackie.

Cleties was preceded in death by his parents; a sister, Willodean Brown; and two brothers, Cledo Wagoner and Virgil Wagoner.

A celebration of the life of Cleties Wagoner will be at noon on Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2017, at the Good Family Funeral Home, 1200 W. 18th St., Rochester. Friends may visit with the family from 10 a.m. to the time of the service Wednesday at the funeral home. Interment will be in the Leiters Ford Cemetery.

Memorials may be made to the First Christian Church, 1101 Madison St., Rochester, IN 46975. Electronic expressions of sympathy may be made to his family at
