Warren C. "Bud" Nagle, M.D. of Athens, Pa., died peacefully at home on Jan. 20, 2013.
The Guest Book is expired.
He was born on Sept. 4, 1926 in Philadelphia, Pa., a son of the late Dr. Frank O. and Alice Zahm Nagle.
Warren graduated from Episcopal Academy, and then joined the U.S. Army. Following his honorable discharge from the service, he graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Dartmouth College and Harvard Medical School. He interned at Lankenau Hospital, followed by a four year residency in Urology at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa. Upon completion of his residency, he opened a private practice in Carlisle, Pa., and then joined the Guthrie Clinic in 1962. Dr. Nagle was appointed Chief of Urology, serving in that position for 24 years, retiring in 1991 after practicing at Guthrie Clinic for 29 years.
As a child, Warren spent summers at the family home in Ocean Grove, N.J., and after his retirement, he enjoyed spending time there with his family, especially his grandchildren. In addition to serving in his community upon retirement, he spent much of his time gardening, reading, and traveling to many parts of the world. One of his greatest pleasures was traveling to visit his grandchildren and attending their numerous school and athletic events. Warren was a long-time member of St. John Lutheran Church, Bradford County Humane Society, and Spaulding Memorial Library.
