from Jun 1959 to Jul 1959 at Anchorage, Anchorage Borough, AlaskaB, the family took a 3 week vacation. They drove a 1954 Hudson Jet from Olympia, WA to Anchorage, AK and back. Accompanying the family of 5 was an 18 year-old foster daughter, Joanne Stagg. The trip had a two-fold purpose: 1) the trip was first and foremost a great adventure and 2) an opportunity for John to check the job market and prospects in Alaska. The trip included; scenery that was unbelievable, fly fishing in pristine uninhabited lakes, family camping, a forest fire of massive size, live moose and glaciers galore.

Traveling up the ALCAN highway from northern British Columbia was absolutely breathtaking. Upon entering Canada, we were required to show that we had enough funds available in US currency in order to not become "accidental" immigrants. The funds available met the very bare minimum. The trek through southern British Columbia was scenic and very sparsely populated.

In order to prepare for the epic journey the car had been carefully prepped. The gas tank was removed and covered with an old carpet to protect it from sharp stones and other objects which might puncture it. A small utility trailer was outfitted with a spare tire and enough camping gear and supplies to last for the week or so of travel northward. A large heavy burlap bag was purchased and loaded with emergency water supplies for the car or for us. The bag hung off of the driverside mirror. The air managed to cool the water inside the bag so that when we needed fresh water for drinking or cooking, it was always nice and cool.

Upon arriving in Dawson Creek, British Columbia (the start of the ALCAN highway) we encountered very heavy rain. There were no paved streets in the town at that time and the going was very rough. We traveled only a short distance out of town before the mud became so thick that the small utility trailer we were towing broke the hitch on the rear bumper. We had the trailer towed back to Dawson Creek and stored until our return journey. Losing the trailer meant abandoning our camping plans for the remainder of the trip. Instead, we slept in motor lodges along the way for the remainder of the trip. That is, when we did not drive 24 hours straight. Being the land of the midnight sun, we were able to drive and make our way great distances even in the middle of the night. Mom and Dad took turns driving in shifts. There wasn't anyway to get lost, there was only one road.

Somewhere along the way between Dawson Creek and Whitehorse in the Yukon, we suffered another major setback when the rear axle suddenly snapped in two. This occurred along a desolate section of the ALCAN that maybe saw one vehicle every 3 or 4 hours. We once again got lucky and someone came along and towed us to a small motor lodge a few miles distant that also included a mechanic. The mechanic it turned out had some incredible skills and while we spent the evening in a comfortable cabin in a very picturesque setting, he worked all night and managed to weld the axle back together. There is not many people who could accomplish such an incredible task, but our guardian angel managed to do it so well that the axle held up the rest of the trip until we returned home to Olympia and found a suitable replacement.

We were able to stay with some friends, the Andersons, in Anchorage during our stay. Upon arriving in Anchorage our little car was unbelievably dirty from the nearly 1,700 mile ALCAN journey. So, we drove to the local "carwash." Actually, we just did like the locals and drove down to a local river that ran through town and just drove into the river and washed it off. It was very convenient and resourceful. I also remember heading across the tundra behind the house of our friends in Anchorage to go fishing. I thought that it was a little odd that we did not have fishing poles but instead, gaff hooks. Alas, no salmon were available that day.

The friend we stayed with had his own refrigerated semi truck and it was loaded with fresh frozen Alaskan King crabs. The shipment was destined for Homer, AK where it would be loaded on a ship for destinations unknown. As I recall, the price of Alaskan King crab was relatively inexpensive (cheaper than chicken?) We enjoyed creamed crab over toast for breakfast, crab salad for lunch and giant grilled Alaskan King crab legs for dinner. We never got our fill and we never ran out. I can still taste the unique savory, sweet and salty flavor. It is making my mouth water as I write this.

Around the 1st of July our family was on the move again headed south to the Kenai Peninsula. We arrived in Homer, AK in time to sit on the Homer Spit and watch the numerous 4th of July fireworks displays around the bay. Since Alaska had earned its statehood on 3 Jan 1959, this particular celebration took on an extra special meaning for the Alaskan residents.6

John Phillip Wagner

John P. Wagner born September 19, 1919 Des Moines, Iowa went to be with his Lord and Savior on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 2009. He suffered a massive stroke twelve days prior and didn't recover. He will be joining his youngest son Robert (August 1, 1955 – July 31, 2004). John was the last surviving son of Stacey E. Wagner and Estelle M. (Young).

John is survived by his loving wife of 66 years, Elsie D. (Lewis). They were joined in matrimony on June 6, 1943 in Olympia. He is also survived by his son, J. Terrance (Evelyn); daughter, Pamela L. Sapp (Randy), all of Olympia; and his son, Robert's widow, Theresa, of Carnation. Also surviving, his brother-in-law, Dale Rutledge (Mary, deceased) of Littlerock. John also had the great fortune to be blessed with six grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-granddaughter. He also is survived by numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

John arrived with his family in Tumwater, WA at an early age where he met John G. West, his lifelong friend to this day. He graduated from Olympia High School in 1937 and celebrated his 72nd class reunion in August of this year. He attended Business College after High School, and held various jobs before beginning a career with the Thurston County Sheriff's Office in 1939. He worked his way up from clerk to Deputy Sheriff. He left the Sherriff's Office for a brief stint with the State Game Commission before returning and ultimately achieved the rank of Undersheriff. In 1957, he had the privilege of attending the FBI Academy in Washington, D.C. for further training. Following a well-publicized break with the Sheriff, he left his position and continued to work for the State of Washington until his retirement in September 1973.

Always one to embrace the opportunities of life, John and Elsie then spent several years traveling back and forth across the United States. They were even able to travel to Japan to enjoy a lengthy visit with their son, Terrance and his family in 1986. It was these times he found to be the most memorable of his life.

John was a long-term member of the Tumwater Baptist Church where he served as Deacon, and later joined the Sleater Kinney Road Baptist Church. Both he and Elsie volunteered for over 30 years at the Crisis Pregnancy Center (now known as Care Net).

Though we struggle with our own loss, we celebrate the very full and fortunate life of John, knowing he is peacefully at rest with his Lord. His legacy to us will be the depth of his honesty and his belief in fairness above all else. His deep seated values, religious commitment and devotion to his family will live with us all through the duration of our own lives, and in this way he will always be a part of us.

Services will be held at Woodlawn-Forest Funeral Home, Lacey on December 12, 2009 at 1:00 pm. Reception will follow at Sleater Kinney Road Baptist Church. Remembrances may be made in memoriam for John to Sleater Kinney Baptist Church, Olympia, Washington or Care Net Pregnancy Center of Thurston County.
