David Nagel Jr. Memorial

It is with tremendous sadness that we share with you,
On Wednesday February 20th in the early afternoon hours David Michael Nagel Jr.  age 25 died unexpectedly.
David was born on September 29th 1992 in St. Paul Minnesota to his loving parents David and Diane Nagel. He was survived on earth by a large loving family and many friends.

David will always be remembered for his strength and courage during difficult times throughout his life while battling addiction and mental illness. Unfortunately, this time the pain and sadness was too unbearable and his life was taken by his own hand. We feel peace knowing that David is free from pain and suffering but he will be missed beyond words.

We will always remember David for the amazing memories and time that we have had with him. He was a great son, loving brother and proud father to his daughter.
He loved music and listening to many genres but especially enjoyed hip-hop & rap. David was a huge goofball and always joking around, he loved making people laugh! He was very passionate about cooking and made a really good roast! He enjoyed cooking for others and sharing his love for food.  Growing up David enjoyed going camping and fishing, along with skateboarding and biking around Watertown with all of his friends.  He was a great kid and a lot of fun to be around!

Please consider making a donation to help ease this sudden financial burden so the family can begin to heal after this horrible loss and tragedy. The amount of accumulated medical expenses and other fees are much higher then anticipated and we truly appreciate any donation.
Please continue to pray for the Nagel family as they navigate through this extremely difficult time.

In David's honor we ask that anyone out there that is struggling with addiction / mental illness & needing help, please know that there is help out there & you are not alone. Never give up hope! We truly never know what struggles others are going through and how deeply they can be hurting. We pray that those suffering and feeling lost find the strength they need to move forward and get the help that they need.

"He's in the sun, the wind, the rain,
he's in the air you breathe
with every breath you take.
He sings a song of hope and cheer,
there's no more pain, no more fear.
You'll see him in the clouds above,
hear him whisper words of love.
You'll be together before long,
until then listen for his song."
