David B. Wagner, 65, beloved husband of Beth (Hackman) Wagner, of South Drive, Ashaway, passed away at his home on Monday, November 4, 2019. He was born in Westerly to the late Burt and Dorothy (Pinky) Wagner.

He was an avid doubles tennis player in the 70’s and 80’s at Pond View Racquet Club. He first taught 5th grade in Chesterfield, Virginia from 1981-1987. He then moved back to Westerly, where he taught from 1988 until he had a stroke in 2004. He loved teaching math to many fifth graders during that time. He was a loyal Boston Red Sox fan. He spent hours watching the games and rehashing them with friends.

He will be sadly missed by his wife Beth of 36 years, and cousins, Paul Bernier (Sue), Kathy Korne (Steve), and Donna Harries.

Relatives and friends are invited to visiting hours on Wednesday, November 13 from 4-6pm at Gaffney-Dolan Funeral Home, 59 Spruce St., Westerly. Funeral service and burial will be private. For online condolences please visit www.gaffneydolanfuneralhome.com

I was away on vacation and came back to this difficult and sad news. One of the "all time" best people that I shared great times with has left us to take his place in heaven. Dave was a classic spontaneous wit who never let anything trouble him. His sense of humor was unmatched and brightened everyone's day. In addition to his tennis prowess, he was also a good basketball player. I remember the days in the YMCA Leagues. With his beautiful Mom & Dad, his home was always open to everyone. Rest in Peace Dave. I know someday, we'll all see each other again!
