Lloyd Erwin Wagner, 100, of Fisher, MN died in his home, surrounded by his loving family, on July 10, 2018. He was born, in this same home, on December, 28, 1917 to Martin and Ida (Heydt) Wagner. To his family, Lloyd leaves a legacy of deep Christian faith and an enduring love of farming. He was an active and lifelong member of Trinity Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod, in Fisher where he was baptized on January 18, 1918 and confirmed in the Christian faith on April 12, 1931. He graduated from Fisher High School on May 31, 1935. He farmed his entire working life, first with his grandfather, father and brothers using horse and plow, and later with his sons and grandsons using GPS guided tractors. Tragically, Lloyd lost his father and younger brother, Delbert, in a farm accident. As the eldest brother, the responsibility of running the family farm fell to him. On August 22, 1952 Lloyd married Harriet (Meyer) Wagner, Delbert’s widow and then adopted and became a father to his 3 young nieces, Tamra, Trudith, and Deborah. Together, they had four more children, Timothy, Linnette, Joel and Jill. Lloyd served in various positions on the Trinity Church Council, and on the Fisher Township board.  Lloyd kept active by helping on the farm well into his nineties. He was the happiest when in a tractor. He also enjoyed working in his greenhouse, doing puzzles, and playing card games with his grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife of 65 years, 7 children: Tamra (Arnold) Jurchen, Beaver Crossing, NE; Trudith (Ron) Gustafson, St. Paul, MN; Deborah Anderson, Melbourne, Australia; Timothy (Carol) Wagner, Fisher, MN; Linnette (Guy) Ramey, Lancaster, NY; Joel (Diane) Wagner, Fisher, MN; and Jill (Donnie) Bryant, Grand Forks, ND. 15 Grandchildren: John (Kristy) Jurchen, James (Sarah) Jurchen, Tanya (Aaron) Reitmeier, Sarah (Bruce) Wall, Adam (Sara) Wagner, Peter (Deb) Jurchen, Luke (Amy) Ramey, Tiara (Lee) Applequist, Leah (Bennett) Adkinson, Amanda Wagner, Jacob (Karmen) Wagner, Paul Wagner, Nils Gustafson, Samuel Wagner, and Seth Wagner.  25 Great-Grandchildren: Jacob, Joshua, Jonathan, Stephanie, Benjamin, Rebekah, Bethany, Lydia, Gavin, Hannah, Elijah, Naomi, Oliver, Vivian, Greta, Abigail, Hayley, Evelyn, Caleb, Noelle, Jasper, Anna, Eden, Josiah, and Baby Girl Adkinson. He is also survived by his sisters and brothers: Irene Ross, Betty Lou (Marlin) Radi, Earl (Elizabeth) Wagner, Eugene (Gladys) Wagner and many, nieces, nephews and cousins.
