|Birth: ||Feb. 8, 1936|
|Death: ||Oct. 18, 2004|
Son of Kalman Nagy and Margaret Gyarmaty Nagy. Brother of James, Eugene and Joseph.
Bob went to work as a teenager delivering milk in bottles on front porches during the wee hours of the morning. After he was old enough he went to work at the steel mill, then for the Ford motor company. Later in life he became a security guard which he retired from.
He married at the age of eighteen to Beatrice Carter in Wyandotte Michigan, they had three sons and two daughters. He had another son with his second wife.
He and his second wife never divorced but they separated nine years when he died.
On the day he died he asked for the picture of him and Bea that was hanging on his wall. He clutched that picture for as long as he could.
My dad died a week before what would of been his and my mothers 50th wedding anniversary. On Oct 24th, their anniversary, at his request some of his ashes were buried on her grave during his services. The rest of his ashes were scattered in Kansas, and on property he owned in Missouri.
He loved good country music and traveling across the country by car. He would take me and my older brother Bobby, who was his best friend, with him on a lot of his trips. When he wasn't traveling he would find himself a good fishing hole. That was when he wasn't washing and waxing his cars.
It seemed that no matter where he was every hurt or hungry animal would find him and he would always take them in. When he was a young man, a city boy visiting in Missouri, on a cold rainy night he'd seen a cat outside so he got a bowl of warm milk and took it out to the cat. The cat attacked him, he said he just couldn't get the thing off of him. It turned out to be a bobcat! Later as he told the story it was funny.
He was a very strong minded man, a man that was very protective of his family, and a man that believed deeply in the lord.
He was the grandfather of thirty one and great grandfather of forty . He with a little help from me delivered his first grandchild, my nephew, at home while my mother stood in the hall screaming in a panick.
He would joke around about starting our own town. When he first became a great grandfather he would joke about being "great". Well before he knew it his great grandson started talking and called him GREAT. From that time on he was known as Great, Papa Great and by some of the smaller kids he was called Grape.
At the age of thirtyone he learned he had a heart disease and at sixtyone he had lung cancer. At the age of sixtyeight while living in Wichita Kansas where he had just months before returned to live to be closer to most of his family.
The cause of death was septic infection.
