Mark H. Wagner, 81, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday afternoon February 20, 2018.

Mark was the second son of Hoy William Wagner and Persis Buerkle Wagner. He was born in Urbana, Ohio on July 4, 1936, one of the hottest days recorded in that area. He graduated Salutorian of Urbana High School Class of 1954. Attending Miami of Ohio University, he majored in Physics. He received a Master of Science from Cal Tech University and accepted a position with Aerojet in Downey. Later Mark worked for California Research and Technology where he was Vice President.

In April 1961 he married Kathleen Weitzel and they had three children: Heather, Kurt and Nicole. The family moved to Thousand Oaks in April 1965 and he resided there until his death. Mark retired in 1990 after his company was sold. He was a gifted musician and enjoyed playing the piano. Mark was a member of the Conejo Valley Historical Society and assisted the Conejo Valley Garden Club on many projects. Most of all, he was a staunch supporter of all his children's activities and was always willing to lend a hand to assist family members and friends.

Mark is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Kathleen and their three children and their families: Heather, Kevin and Courtney Brandt; Kurt, Lucie, Brian, Tiffany and Matthew Wagner; and Nicole (Alex) and Marcus Bhathal. He was preceded in death by his parents and his older brother Charles.

Mark was highly intelligent with a kind, honorable and gentle manner; a true exemplar of a good man who will be so missed.
