Our Dear Friend

Thank you everyone for your prayers. Please continue to pray for Matt's wife Molly and daughter Harper.

Matthew Robert Nagel, age 35, beloved son, husband and father, went home to the Lord April 4, 2012 at KU Medical Center after suffering a stroke. He passed peacefully from the arms of his love to the arms of his Savior.

Matt was born January 12, 1977 in Kansas City, MO to Brian and Vicki Nagel of Spring Hill, KS. He graduated from Kansas City Christian High School and later from Kansas State University. He worked in church ministry, construction management and most recently in non-profit community development at The Hope Center, as Director of Operations. In addition to cheering on the Wildcats, he enjoyed spending time outdoors in Colorado, and taking care of his precious girls.

He is survived by his bride of nearly 10 years, Molly Heintzelman Nagel, their daughter Harper, his parents, his brother Mark and family, and his treasured extended family and countless devoted friends. They will miss his tender heart, fierce devotion, buoyant smile and contagious, steady faith.

A memorial service to celebrate Matt’s life will be held April 5, 2012 at 4pm at Heartland Community Church, 12175 S. Strangline Rd, Olathe, KS 66062.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in his honor to The Hope Center –
