Robert Wagenhoffer

Two-time world professional figure skating champion Robert Wagenhoffer died Dec. 13 in Torrance of complications from AIDS. He was 39.

Wagenhoffer followed his amateur and professional competitive career with a career starring in many national shows, including the Ice Capades, the Tour of the World and Olympic Champions, World Cup Champions on Ice and Gershwin on Ice. He was also an award-winning director and choreographer.

At the age of 16, Wagenhoffer, from Fontana, was the only U.S. skater to be a junior and senior champion in singles and pairs in the same year. He earned 31 other national and international medals during his 26-year amateur and pro career.

He is survived by life partner Sylvain Beauregard; his parents, Mike and Ada; and two brothers.

The family asks that donations in Wagenhoffer’s name be made to Mama’s Kitchen for the comfort and care of AIDS patients, 1875 2nd Ave., San Diego, CA. 92101.
