JOSEPH "DAVID" WAGGENER, 74, COLUMBIA

 
David Waggener, 74, of Columbia, KY passed away peacefully on January 16, 2019 under the care of Lake Cumberland Hospice from cancer.  His family members and his beloved dog, Pug, were at his side. Joseph David Waggener was born on April 24, 1944 in Glasgow, KY and was preceded in death by his parents, Allen Baker Waggener and Gertrude Gentry Waggener.  
 
Prior to his passing, David lived in Columbia for 24 years, having left Rockport, MA to be closer to his sister, Barbara Barnes and her husband, Charles. Raised in Orlando, FL, by all standards, David led a full and active life academically, personally and professionally. He received degrees from the University of South Florida in Tampa, an MBA from the University of Florida, and was accepted into the Doctoral program at Harvard University.  Prior to owning his restaurant in Rockport, David worked for NBC on the iconic Johnny Carson Show screening, interviewing and scheduling guest for the show. He was an accomplished Chef and owner of the famous restaurant “Hannah Jumper” on Bearskin Neck in Rockport for 20 years. During his time in Columbia, he was employed by FEMA and HUD.
 
David was a generous citizen of the world who traveled the globe extensively in his spare time, sharing his life with family and friends. He was a member of the Columbia Christian Church and the Adair County Chamber of Commerce. David was also an advocate for animal rights and an avid lover of pets. His enthusiasm for world history and being a master “prankster” to his family and friends brought him great joy!
