TAYLORSVILLE - On Sept. 29, 2010, "Bob" Van Wagoner passed through the veil after a lingering illness.

He was born May 13, 1930 in Standardville to Elden and Sarah Jane Pinegar Van Wagoner. He married Ruth Wells in 1948 and together they had six children. In 1994, they served a mission in Kirtland, Ohio. He worked at Kaiser Mine in Sunnyside until moving to Salt Lake in 1960 where he obtained his own electrical license. He worked as an independent electrical contractor until 1969 when he was hired as Chief Electrical Inspector for Salt Lake County. In 1975 he also began teaching the Electrical Apprentice Classes at the Salt Lake Community College. He held many church positions including Bishop of the Wellington 2nd Ward from 1958-1960. Bob and Ruth taught their children to love the gospel and the value of hard work. He had a great love for music and dancing which he passed along to his children and grandchildren. One of his greatest joys was having family sing-a-longs.

Following Ruth's death in 2003 Bob married Dona Hoskin and became Dad and grandpa to an additional six children, 23 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren whom he loved, and they loved him.

Survived by his wife Dona; brother, Fred (Christy); sisters-in-law, Marilyn and Colleen Van Wagoner; children: Gayleen, Deb (Bill) Dalbey, Robyn Koenig, Brent (Debbie), Wells (Eileen), Mari (Bret) Pearce; 22 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren; step-children: Rick (Cami) Hoskin, Rhonda (Mark) Barnes, Rachelle, Ranae (Rick) Fischer, Robyn (Chris) Keller, RaDawn (Mark) Kearney; many nieces, nephews and in-laws.
