Kenny died Sunday, May 13, 2018.


Kenneth Luverne Nagel was born October 16, 1928 at home in rural Glenville, the son of Clifford and Pearl (Beck) Nagel.  He attended country school.  Kenny went to work with his father farming, milking cows, and bailing.  He then trained to become a mechanic, working for Irv’s Service.  Kenny went on to open Nagel’s Service Station in rural Glenville in 1960. He was in business for over 50 years.  On June 2, 1951, Kenny was united in marriage to Lorraine Gavle at Lunder Lutheran Church.  He was a member of Round Prairie Lutheran Church, the Eagle’s Club for over 40 years, the Elks, and the Arrowhead Snowmobile Club. Kenny enjoyed deer hunting in Baudette, fishing, boating, and snowmobiling. He had a special trait of being able to fix anything with a motor.  Later in life he had a passion for refurbishing old Ford tractors.  Kenny especially loved time with his grandchildren.


Kenny is survived by his wife, Lorraine; children, Steve (Julie) Nagel, Brad (Connie) Nagel, and Carrie Villana; grandchildren, Nick (Angie) Nagel and their children Claire and Hannah, Nate (Abbey) Nagel and their children Lily and Luke, Tina (Jacob) Huchtmeier, and Armen Amirayan; sister, Pat (Earl) Dillavou; sister-in-law, Berdine (Greg) Staples; brother-in-law, Charlie Troe; and several nieces and nephews.
