Youngstown - Robert H. Nagel, 72, passed away early Friday morning, December 17, 2021 at Hospice of the Valley's Hospice House, surrounded by his family.

Bob was born July 12, 1949 in Youngstown, Ohio, a son of the late Robert and Irene Douds Nagel.

A lifelong area resident, Bob was a 1968 graduate of South High School. After graduation, he enlisted in the United States Navy, serving aboard the USS Everglades until being honorably discharged in 1970. He later attended the National School of Meat Cutting in Toledo, Ohio and worked as a meat cutter for over 35 years. He worked for Point Market, Campbell Super Duper, and retired from Cochran's Sparkle Market in 2015.

While attending the Canfield Fair with friends, Bob met the former Nancy Borosky, and they were later married on March 26, 1974. They celebrated 47 years of marriage and were blessed with two children. Bob was a dedicated family man and family was his number one priority.

In his free time, Bob enjoyed yard work, gardening, and summer trips to Geneva-on-Lake, making each trip complete with a stop at Eddie's Grill. Bob will always be remembered for his kindness, generosity, willingness to always help others, and his caring heart.
