Turkey 2

Charles W. Nagel

November 8, 1931 ~ July 16, 2022 (age 90)


Charles (Chuck) William Nagel, 90, of Butler, PA went to his heavenly home on Saturday July 16th, 2022.  

Charles was born in Oil City, PA to Edwin and Laura Nagel.  He grew up with brother Ed and sister Mariana along the Allegheny River.  His childhood adventures outdoors instilled a lifelong affinity for fishing, gardening, and hunting (especially the elusive turkey!).  Young adulthood led him to the US Coast Guard and eventually on to Penn State where he graduated with a BS in Business Administration. The Bessemer and Lake Erie Railroad was where he built his career in accounting, finance and college recruiting. 

Chuck married his wife Cheryl in 1965 and they spent the first 15 years of marriage raising 4 children in the idyllic small town of Greenville, PA.  Since 1982 they have made the Butler/North Pittsburgh area their home, saw 4 children graduate from college and been active members of the Summit Presbyterian Church of Butler for 35 years.  After retiring from the B&LE RR, Chuck spent time at Penn Fencing, the Butler Auto Action and the Butler School District. 

He is preceded in death by his first wife Marguerite Trueblood Nagel, his parents, his brother and his sister.

He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Cheryl, their children David and Kim Nagel, Elizabeth Nagel, Brian and Sherri Nagel, Jennifer (Nagel) and Chris Villi as well as 6 grandchildren, Lauren and Kaitlyn Nagel, Charles and Samantha Nagel and Aaron and Caleb Villi.

The family will welcome visitors at the Summit Presbyterian Church, 181 Caldwell Drive, Butler on Saturday, July 23, 2022 from 9am-11am with a funeral service to follow at 11:30 am. 

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to His Kids Christian School, 650 Saxonburg Road, Butler, PA 16002.
