Former President Of Kentucky Retired Teachers Association Dies At 66

Dear KRTA Members,

It is with deep sadness that I write to let you know that Dr. Bob Wagoner passed away yesterday evening.

Bob had been battling pneumonia for the past several weeks, and he was surrounded by his loving family last night.

We all know what a humble and kind soul Bob was, and how much he cared about teachers. It has been my honor to work by his side for the past several months learning the ropes at KRTA, and during our years together working for Kentucky schools.

This news leaves a gaping hole in all of our hearts, but I know Bob would want us to celebrate our work with him to better the lives of retired teachers.

Arrangements are underway for the services, and I will get that information to you as soon as it is available. In the meantime, we will all keep Bob’s wife Mary and his son Jarrod in our thoughts and prayers.

With sadness,
Tim Abrams
KRTA Executive Director
