Gary Lynn Wagstaff

May 14, 2024

1950 – 2024

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our beloved father, Gary Lynn Wagstaff, on May 11, 2024. He was a devoted husband, loving father and grandfather, and cherished friend to many.

Gary was born on November 2, 1950, in American Fork, Utah, to Roy and Catherine Wagstaff. He lived a life full of love, laughter, and hard work.

Gary, otherwise known as Muzz, had a deep appreciation for the great outdoors and cherished spending time in nature. He found joy in camping, fishing, and hot springing, creating lasting memories and bonds with each adventure. Motorcycle rides and road trips were another passion of his. He grew an annual vegetable garden and knew all the tricks for cultivating a large yield. Most of all, he treasured the time spent with his family during holidays and special occasions, creating precious moments and memories that will be forever cherished. Gary was a retired military veteran and served in the National Guard. He will be remembered for his sense of humor and a playful spirit that brightened the lives of those around him. He was known for his quick wit, infectious crooked grin, his ability to fix anything, and his skill in being the best painting contractor in town. Gary was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where he found strength and guidance from throughout his life.

Gary is preceded in death by his loving wife, Shanna Fay Wagstaff; parents, Roy and Catherine; and brother, Jack Wagstaff. He is survived by his children, Brandon (Carmen) Wagstaff, Cody Wagstaff, Stacy Wagstaff, Amber (Jed) Horton, Christy (Hampton) Hampton, Cassie Wagstaff; 16 grandchildren; and brothers, David Wagstaff, Bruce (Debi) Wagstaff, and Rick Wagstaff. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends, and we await the time when we will be reunited.

A viewing will be held on Friday, May 17th from 6:00-8:00 PM at Anderson & Sons Mortuary in American Fork. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, May 18th at 10:00 AM at the 8th Ward Chapel, 320 N 100 E, American Fork, Utah.
