Terry L. Wagoner, 53, of Athena and formerly of La Grande, died Feb. 23 at his home. A celebration of life will begin at 2 p.m. Friday at the First Christian Church in Pendleton with Pastor Mark Mullins officiating. An additional celebration of life will be planned at a later date in La Grande.

Terry was born Oct. 24, 1954, to Paul D. and Barbara L. Newcomb Wagoner in La Grande. He attended area schools and graduated from Imbler High School in 1972. On Aug. 11, 1973, he married Tina Pugh in La Grande. Later that year, he began working for the Union Pacific Railroad. He eventually became a conductor and retired in 2005 due to a disability.
