Calvin Paul Nebel, 83, entered his heavenly home on Jan. 26, 2008. He lived in Benton, Mo., for 50 years, then moved to Saxony Village and was a resident of the Missouri Veterans Home. He was born west of Cape Girardeau on Oct. 14, 1924, the son of the late Julius and Pauline (Friedrich) Nebel.
On Aug. 11, 1946, he married Gladys Ella Keller at Zion Lutheran Church. The Lord blessed their marital union with the gifts of four children: Thomas Calvin (Susan) Nebel of Clarksville, Tenn.; Mary Ellen (Larry) Urhahn of Benton; Christian Frances (Charles) Cott of Columbia, Mo.; Robert Walter (Virginia) Nebel of Clarksville, Tenn.; seven grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; three stepgrandchildren; and three great-stepgrandchildren. He is survived by a brother, Fred Nebel, and a sister, Anna Marie Daume, both of Cape Girardeau.
Mr. Nebel was an active member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Chaffee, Mo. He retired from Missouri Utilities (now Ameren) after 41 years of service. Mr. Nebel served on the USS Alabama in Admiral Halsey's Third Fleet during World War II, where he earned 18 battle stars. He was an avid outdoorsman and shared this love with his family.
