Obituary - Lancer J. Wagar
Lancer J. Wagar

Missing since July 2023, he was found in early October 2023, after losing his life to the elements.

The family moved around a little before settling in Fallon, NV, where he lived for the past forty-plus years. Lancer attended Churchill County High School and earned his diploma in his forties. He was a carpenter by trade for many years before opening his own handyman service – Handyman Hookup of which he was very proud. He helped people even if they could not afford it. His generosity was taken advantage of by some, but most were grateful. He would help in any way he could. Lancer loved getting away from the city and being outdoors, taking in the sounds and beauty of nature. 

Lancer is survived by his parents, Frank A. & Dee R. Wagar of Fallon, NV, brother Paul K. Heath of Reno, NV, sisters Laura J. Vasquez of Lovelock, NV, Lisa R. Gonzalez (brother-in-law Commie) and Linda J. Biggins of Fallon, NV, and Lucinda Waggoner (brother-in-law Drough) of Ely, NV, as well as a few aunts and uncles, several cousins, nieces, nephews, and his girlfriend Denise and her son Roger. 

The family would like to thank the Churchill County & Lyon County Sheriff’s departments, and Search & Rescues for their efforts as well as family and friends who took part in the search. And a special thank you to the person or persons that found his remains and notified the authorities. We do not know who you are, but you brought closure to our family and for that we are grateful. 

Graveside services will be in Lovelock for family and close friends.
