Charles H. Nagle Assistant manager

September 19, 1992

Charles H. Nagle, retired assistant manager of the local office of the Merck, Sharp and Dohme Division of Merck and Co., died Wednesday of cancer at the Stella Maris Hospice.

A Mass of Christian burial for the 87-year-old Cliftmont Avenue resident will be held today at 9 a.m. at the Roman Catholic Shrine of the Little Flower, Belair Road and Brendan Avenue.

He retired in 1967 after starting to work in 1917 for Sharp and Dohme.

A Baltimore native who was raised in East Baltimore, he was a softball and soccer player in the 1920s and 1930s. He played soccer for the Patapsco Rangers and other teams and later officiated at local soccer games.

He also was a piano player who used his own style, whether playing from music or by ear.

In addition to playing for family members and friends, he would play for neighborhood children who gathered on his front porch and sang.

He is survived by his wife of 65 years, the former Dorothy B. Eierhart; two sons, Charles C. Nagle of Bel Air and Robert W. Nagle of Rosedale; a daughter, Doris Jean Haag of Baltimore; a brother, John C. Nagle of Orlando, Fla.; a sister, Florence Ernst of Baltimore; 13 grandchildren; and 21 great-grandchildren.
