Thomas Milton Wagner

Thomas Wagner - Walworth, NY - Rochester Cremation

Walworth, NY:  January 19, 2019.  Thomas Milton Wagner A.K.A. The Uniped Devil, 44 years old, passed away after his hard fought battle against Pancreatic Cancer.

He survived bone cancer at the age of 10 resulting in the loss of his left leg. Thomas never let that slow him down. An accomplished artist, he also did stand-up comedy and rode a bike taxi in West Palm Beach Florida for over 15 years. There are too many stories and adventures to do justice to here, he lived more in 44 years than many people do with double the time.

His humor, wit and personality drew many people to call him friend. He was known as the “Mayor of West Palm Beach”. He loved to share his love of comic books, music, good food and drink with those around him.

A paid in full and card holding Subgenious he wrote about his life;

“Follow your bliss

Find your slack

I’ve lived a good life

Not ruled by money or success…even though more would’ve been nice

My riches were my friends, my inner circle of villains who showed me great love & loyalty & I hope I returned it back within tons of great times we shared

Yes I’ve always been the jokester

Travelled through darkness & flown in the light

I’ve always been well known for being late for things. Too bad death wasn’t one of them. What I wouldn’t have done for another 20 years. Especially by Jenny’s side.”

-Thomas Wagner 10-31-18

“I may not have accomplished a whole lot in life. But I’ve had a great run. Met some interesting folks who I have the privilege to call friends. And most of all I’ve been a positive influence to so many folks who’s lives I touched.”

-Thomas Wagner 10-19-18

Praise “BOB”!

Thomas is survived by his girlfriend Jennifer Copenhagen, step-kids Jacinth, Catena and Julian. Family, friends and scores of women across the country who shall remain nameless.

A memorial service will be held in the spring, arrangements TBD.

In lieu of flowers Thomas asked that donations be made to Camp Good Days and Special Times who he credits for getting him through the 4 years of cancer treatment as a child and his can-do spirit that sailed with him through life.

    Thom and I were in Mr. Zucker’s Creative Writing class and also on the literary magazine together at Wellington High School. He was a kind, funny, brilliant and very talented person who I had so much admiration for. Years later, I visited West Palm Beach and he was my pedi-cab driver. I went to see him perform stand up comedy-is there nothing he could do?
    His courage, humor and heart will never be forgotten.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you Jennifer, he was so lucky to be loved by you.

    Makes me so sad to hear of Thoms passing. I was praying for a miracle. I remember when we were kids Thom came back to school from his bone cancer. He was such a happy kid. In high school, he never let anything keep him down. He will surely be missed. My heart and my prayers go out to his family and to Jenny. May you try to find peace during this difficult time.

    One of those rare people I was always glad to see when I went downtown to West Palm Beach. We had a lot of good conversations over the years. He was funny. He was kind. I will miss him. My sincerest condolences.

    Thom loved pro wrestling, garbage plates and anything Rochester. He truly treated Jenny with unmatched honor and respect. He loved her and his step kids dearly. He taught me that “Time” is most important in this life. Time with loved ones, time with friends. “Time is Precious” He got the most out of his short time here.
    I will miss our talks about wrestling, but most of all, I will miss you!
    Thank you for being you,

    You’re always a great friend made us laugh made us smile. You live life to the fullest you live Life By the Drop. Where have not been in Palm Beach for many years one of the things I miss most about Palm Beach was our conversations about Comics ,anime, and movies. When I tore my MCL and my ACL almost two years ago I kept working I kept struggling because there’s no reason to complain because of Heroes like yourself and my mother who’s also disabled I knew it’s only a minor setback because of real heroes real strong-willed individuals that can overcome anything I knew I could do the same. Thank you for give me fond memories and great conversations I will miss you.
