Jon C. Wagner

Jon C. Wagner, 29 of Streator passed away Thursday (November 18, 2021) at his home.

A visitation will be held Saturday (Nov. 27th) from 3 – 6 PM at the Winterrowd Funeral Home. Services will follow visitation. Burial will be in the Phillips Cemetery at a later date.
Jon was born on January 27, 1992 in De Ridder, Louisiana.
Surviving are; fiancée Samantha Bay of Streator, daughter, Salem Grace Wagner of Streator, his mother and step father, Jonella and Tony Harlacher of Streator, his father and step-mother, Scott and Cathy Wagner of Davenport, Iowa, brothers, Joe Wagner, Anthony Harlacher and A.J.

Jon attended Streator grade schools and high school. He was employed at SMF Welding in Minonk.

Jon was a good father who adored his daughter and loved her and Sam unconditionally. He had a smile that could light up a room and a personality big enough to to fill any space. He was a good friend to many people and his passing has caught all of us off guard and is going to leave a void that will be very hard to fill.

Guestbook

Dear Jonathan,
You have been just a memory to share as a way to defined my life\'s story for the past 18 years, instead of the best friend I once proclaimed.

It all started on a torrid summer day watching you and Joe playing in the street. You intercepted my runaway dog. I shared my Lion King popsicles.

I helped with your paper route, then shared stomach aches over our earned stale candy from The Meadowking. We raked every yard\'s leaves to build complex forts. We shoveled all the drive ways to make a snow ball big enough to block traffic, and heavy enough to get us into trouble.

We practiced harmonized classics to sing in strangers\' doorway for the reward of juice and snacks. We rocked with neighbors on back porch swings absorbing their stories. We ran from bullies and mastered escape routes through backyard shortcuts.

Your trampoline was our spaceship. On stretched out roads we were hippies out to find San Francisco. In the creek we were fearless crawdad hunters.

I moved. Our lives diverged. You became someone I asked about. Googled every few years, but neither of us gave that effort to talk again.

So when I saw your picture in the paper. You were a stranger. Not my freckled faced, gapped tooth best friend. When it said you were gone, that didn\'t sink in. Because when I think of childhood, I think of you. To me, you were just in Neverland.

To my favorite lost boy, may you rest on peace,
Brie
