Johnny Wagnon, 66, of Spavinaw, passed away on Sunday, July 12, 2020 at his home. He was born on November 17, 1953 in Claremore, Oklahoma; the son of Jack and Betty (Thompson) Wagnon. He married Janie Six on August 28, 1981 in Disney, Oklahoma. Johnny had a great sense of humor and always had a funny “dad joke” to tell. He was quick-witted and always had a smile on his face. He loved to work on cars, go fishing, and he especially loved spending time with his grandchildren. Johnny was a member of the Round Springs Baptist Church and was also an ordained deacon. He was a Santa Claus for the Cherokee Gourd Society for 15 years; he thoroughly enjoyed being Santa for all those years. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend who will be so dearly missed.
