Jay Allen Sagner, 60, of Moberly, passed away March 6, 2022 at Aspire Senior Living in Moberly, MO. He was born on October 16, 1961 in Columbia, MO and grew up in the country west of Moberly.
Following school, Jay enlisted in the United States Marines. When he returned, he went to work for Orscheln for a period of time before relocating to Nevada to work for Nevada Wood making utility poles. In 1996 Jay moved back to Moberly to be closer to his family. He enjoyed spending time with his nephews and niece.
He liked going to truck and tractor pulls and he loved to go to the movies and concerts when his health allowed. Hank Williams Jr. was his favorite entertainer and his sister said that Jay must have seen him in concert at least nine times. He had an amazing sense of humor as well as a huge heart. Jay was always there to help anyone in need and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Jay is preceded in death by his father, Charles Frederick “Fred” Sagner.
He is survived by his sister and “Best Bud”, Lynn Smith of Moberly; nephews, Nathan Parsons, Cody Smith, Andrew Beaupre, Shaun Sagner and Bryce Sagner; niece, Brianna Sagner; 9 great nephews; 5 great nieces; 1 great great-nephew; great friend and ex sister-in-law, Deb Beaupre Schnyder; extended family and friends.
A private service celebrating Jay’s life will be held at a later date.
