Carl Theodore Nadler, 91, died Nov, 3, 2017, in Puyallup.

He was born June 17, 1926, in Augusta, Missouri, to Enos and Irma (Wissmann) Nadler. He joined the Army in 1944, served in the Pacific, received the Asiatic Pacific Campaign Medal and fought in the Okinawa operation with the 57th Field Artillery Battalion of the 7th Division. Following Japan’s surrender, he was sent to Korea for occupation duty. After returning home, he received a bachelor’s degree in engineering from Washington University Missouri, then a master’s degree in engineering from the University of Missouri. He later retired from a position as regional director for the Environmental Protection Agency in Water Quality Standards. His greatest enjoyment came outdoors – hunting, camping and fishing – and indoors canning anything from salmon to tomatoes, as well as traveling the world.

Nadler Jr. (Luise) of The Dalles, Oregon, Mark Nadler of Bainbridge Island, Washington, Chris Nadler (Anne) of Denver, Colorado, and Jon Nadler (Barb) of Mt.

He was preceded in death by his wife Laurice “Jo” Smith Nadler; sister Phyllis Edwards; brothers Ervin Nadler and Donald Nadler; and first wife Margaret Schone.

Services are planned for 1 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 25, at Tahoma National Cemetery in Kent.
