Email: efw@wagnercares.com

Eugene was recently elected President of the Michigan Funeral Directors Association (MFDA). MFDA is a professional organization representing roughly 1200 funeral directors serving 500 funeral homes statewide, and representing nearly three-quarters of all licensed mortuary science establishments in Michigan. Wagner was installed in Grand Rapids at the Association’s 138th annual convention.

Eugene is a native of Detroit and has amassed over 40 years of experience in the funeral service industry. A graduate of Wayne State University, he is also a charter member of the Michigan Embalmers Society and a founding member and past president of the Independent Funeral Directors of Indiana, and a rostered clergy (Emeritus) in the Lutheran Church.

Eugene and his wife, Lois, returned to their home state of Michigan in 2010 when they purchased their funeral home in Cassopolis and they have been active members of the community ever since, including service on the Cass Area Utility Authority and Cassopolis / Vandalia Chamber of Commerce. Wagner was also elected to serve on the Cassopolis Village Council.

 Eugene is the third President of MFDA from Cassopolis.  The first was J. J. Fisher in 1919, the second was Thomas J. Connelly in 1971.
