34 Years Ago ~ Petition Filed for Name Change

August 10, 1978
Petition Filed
Praying For The Change Of My Name

Legal Name Change from
Edward J. Wagner to Edward J. Klecka

After my father passed away, the above newspaper clipping
was with his personal belongings.
What's amazing is that from about the age of five
my father went by the name Edward J. Klecka.
He went through school, married my mom, 
had five children, and he even went through the
United States Military using the name Edward J. Klecka.
Apparently, he did this without his name ever 'legally'
being changed from Edward J. Wagner. 
The only thing I can think of is that
he assumed it had been changed, and probably around
the time of creating his Trusts, had to do so legally.
And the one thing we all know ~ no doubt about it ~
he always was Edward J. Klecka!
