Anton Nagele died at the age of 83.
The long-standing CSU city councilor and holder of the Schongau ring of honor was a passionate supporter of sport, politics and club life.
Schongau – Anton Nagele is dead: Mayor Falk Sluyterman brought this sad news last Tuesday evening at the beginning of the city council meeting and asked the committee and the visitors for a minute's silence for the former city council and honorary ring bearer of Schongau.
For three electoral terms, the Schongauer sat for the CSU parliamentary group at the council table, from May 1, 1990 initially under Mayor Luitpold Braun, then two terms of office until 2008 under Mayor Friedrich Zeller.
He sat on the committee of the Heiliggeist-Spitalstiftung, on the auditing committee and on a committee for spa issues, a forerunner of the Plantsch board of directors.
And he was responsible for the indoor and outdoor pools at that time.
Obituary: Schongauer Anton Nagele died at the age of 83
"I met him again and again and I respected him very much," said Mayor Sluyterman.
Nagele was still interested in local politics for a long time and came to the town's citizens' meeting year after year - not for the first time this year.
Health and sports were particularly important to Nagele.
Not only that he worked for the AOK for a long time, most recently as branch manager in Schongau.
He was also involved with TSV Schongau for many years, especially at the running group.
Already 80 years old, he was awarded a special prize at the sports awards of the district.
CSU Schongau: "We are losing a veteran"
"We are losing a veteran," regrets Oliver Kellermann, local chairman of the CSU Schongau.
In September 1989, Nagele joined the CSU and quite spontaneously made it onto the city council.
Kellermann remembers how, after 18 years, Nägele decided that the young members of the local association should now run for city council.
Nagele - last on the list - only just missed entering the city parliament again, so many Schongauers had given him a vote again.
"He was an absolutely lovely person," says Kellermann, "a warm-hearted man who passionately supported politics, sport and club life."
Nagele last lived in the Heiliggeist-Spital in Schongau, where he died after a serious illness at the age of 83 in the presence of his sister and daughter.
