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.”

“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
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. https://www.campgooddays.org/donations
