A Grand Valley resident passes away, but continues to give back to a cause close to his heart.
Chuck Wagner asked several of his friends about the Shriner Hospitals prior to his passing. Wagner's friends say he always wanted to know how Shriner clubs could provide medical services to children for free.
Even though he had no children of his own, he was committed to children and wanted to know how he could be included in an organization that helped children. To do his part, Wagner left his home to the Shriner Hospitals when he passed away.
A local realtor helped Shriners in the sale of Wagner's home. His close friend, Garry Brewer, presented the Western Colorado Shrine Club with a check for $163,000 on Saturday night.
