Philip Leonard Nagorski was born November 3, 1948, in St. Cloud, Minnesota to Philip and Theresa (Williams) Nagorski. Phil grew up in Maple Lake, where he was baptized and confirmed at St. Timothy Catholic Church and graduated from Maple Lake High School with the Class of 1966. He served his country in the US Army during the Vietnam War. On July 8, 1972, Phil was united in marriage to Sandra Smedstad at First Lutheran Church in Fergus Falls. They made their home in Buffalo where they were blessed with two children, Chad and Kristen. Phil worked as a retail sales manager at numerous locations, primarily Coast to Coast Hardware in Buffalo and Rockford and at Neil's Floor Covering in Buffalo. He was a member of Zion Lutheran Church in Buffalo, the Buffalo American Legion, and the Buffalo Gun Club. Phil enjoyed hunting, fishing, trap shooting, tinkering in his garage, and meticulously maintaining his yard, vehicles, equipment, garage and home. He was his children's and grandchildren's biggest fan at their events and in life. Phil was the type of guy that always greeted you with a handshake and a smile.
Phil is survived by his wife of 50 years, Sandy; son, Chad (Megan) Nagorski of Esko; daughter, Kristen Hoyne of Buffalo; grandchildren, Alexa Evenson, Avery and Aiden Hoyne, Jackson and Laila Nagorski; brother, William (Christa) Nagorski of Lakeville; sister, Deanna (Roy) Provo of Clearwater; and many other relatives and friends.
