Obituary

George "Ed" Wagasky Jr., 89, of Las Vegas, passed away suddenly Sunday, April 1, 2012. He was born June 2, 1922 in Duquesne, Pa. Ed was a 26-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force and a decorated fighter pilot who flew P-47s and P-51s in Europe during World War II. He was a husband and father who loved to barbeque, build model airplanes, especially the ones that he and his son flew in the U.S. Air Force, and play poker! Now he is holding the best hand of all, the hand of God. He is survived by his beloved high school sweetheart and wife, of 66 years, Nell; son, Ski; daughter-in-law, Linda; three grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren. He will be missed by all that knew him. Services will be at 10 a.m., Friday, April 6, at Palm Mortuary, 7400 W. Cheyenne Ave., Las Vegas.

"Sorry for you. I know when my dad died it was very emotional for me. I tried to call you last week but you were probably at the funeral. God bless you...."
