On Monday, February 18, 2019, Robert D Nagel, loving husband, father and grandfather, passed away at the age of 88.
The third child of Emil and Orra Nagel, Bob graduated from the Breckenridge High School and soon after married his high school sweetheart, Barbara Muscott. The two had three children together, Rod, Roberta, and Randy. Bob served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, and retired from the Dow Chemical Company in Midland, Michigan, last working as a lab technician.
An avid sports enthusiast, traveler, woodworker and cardplayer, Bob and Barbara enjoyed golfing, square dancing, playing bridge and camping across the United States with their children and grandchildren. Bob served on the Board of Directors for the Breckenridge Library, and held various positions serving the First Congregational Church of Breckenridge.
Bob is survived by his wife Barbara Nagel of 69 years, married April 3, 1949, in Breckenridge, Michigan. Their sons: Rodney W. (Teri), Randal D. (Tracie) Nagel, and daughter Roberta. Grandchildren: Greg, Jessica, Drake (Amanda), Chloe, Addie, Laura (Aaron) Rasmussen, and their children Oliver, Eliot, and Hazel.
For those wishing, instead of sending flowers, please consider making a charitable gift in Bob’s memory to: First Congregational Church, 830 Wright St., Breckenridge, MI 48615.
A celebration of his life will be scheduled for later this spring in Breckenridge, MI.
