ROBERT AUGUST NAGEL MONTICELLO, IN Robert August "Bob" Nagel, 89, of Monticello, IN died from dementia at 1:08 p.m. Sunday, March 10, 2013 at Monticello Assisted Living and Healthcare Center. He was born December 13, 1923 in Chicago to the late Elmer Paul and Mary Carolyn (Fanson) Nagel. Bob graduated from Morgan Park High School in 1942 and within a month was drafted into the Army where he contributed to the WWII war effort as an engineer designing and building pontoon bridges. The day after his honorable discharge, April 27, 1946 in Chicago, he married the love of his life, Elaine Rump. She died on April 20, 2008. Bob enjoyed sports, particularly baseball, dogs, dancing, and just being with people. He had an extremely quick wit and always knew how to make you laugh. He loved his family more than life itself, especially his wife of 62 years, Elaine, forever his beautiful bride. Bob is survived by two sons: Craig (Marianne) Nagel of Griffith and Glenn ( Jo) Nagel of Merrillville; two daughters: Karen (Dan) Gribble of Hebron and Gayle (Joe) Rogers of Monticello; 12 grandchildren; and 23 great grandchildren. A memorial service for Bob will be held in Griffith at a later date. Springer-Voorhis-Draper Funeral Home of Monticello is entrusted with care.
