The following obituary was composed by Dr. Wagner’s family:

Earle Noble Wagner, eldest child of Earle Keller Wagner and Gladys Noble Wagner passed from this earth on June 10, 2022. He and his late wife Helga Hagedorn Wagner had 4 children: Robert, Peter, Heidi and Krista as well as five grandchildren. Noble grew up in Cheltenham Village graduating from Cheltenham High School in 1947. He was a member of Cheltenham Troop 22, Boy Scouts of America, where he earned the rank of Eagle Scout. He attended Franklin and Marshall College, graduating in 1951. During high school and college, in addition to his studies, Noble excelled in athletics. He participated in cross country, football, wrestling, baseball and track. He earned 3 varsity letters in high school and four in college. He was a member and president of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity and Black Pyramid Honor Society. He married Helga Hagedorn on August 28, 1954. After completing college, Noble was accepted to and attended the Philadelphia College of Osteopathy earning his Doctor of Osteopathy degree in 1955. He completed his intern year at the Hospital of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathy in 1956. Following his internship, Noble opened his general practice in Cheltenham Village around the corner from his childhood home. He served the community in the same basement office space that he occupied 50 years. He was a member of the medical staff at Jeanes Hospital and served as chief of Family Medicine. A firm believer in the value of osteopathic medical theory and techniques, he found time to go back to his Alma Mater, PCOM, to teach medical students those techniques. He served as President of the Pennsylvania Osteopathic Medical Association from 2001 to 2002 and was a member of the POMA for over 60 years. At an early age Noble learned the value of giving back to the community and, starting with his Boy Scouting career, he was a dedicated member of the Cheltenham Rotary Club. He frequently was found participating in fund raising activities as well as the Rotary sponsored international exchange program. He was honored as a Paul Harris Fellow. He continued an active lifestyle through much of his life. He and Helga were avid golfers and were members of Old York Road Country Club for many years. Noble was captain of OYRCC Men’s Golf Team and served on the Board of Governors of the club.
