MANSFIELD: Dave Moysi always looked good. Easy to spot downtown Mansfield in his position as Vice President of Trustcorp (now Key Bank), Dave dressed in a trendy sportcoat and saddle shoes. He looked even better "wearing" the suit of a fundraiser for United Way or Sertoma Club, eager to give back to the Mansfield community. But Dave looked the best when he wore his Madison High School jacket, embroidered with the names of all his grandkids, cheering at their events. Dave Moysi was all about Family and Community.
Dave went to be with the Lord Sunday morning July 6, 2014 from Hospice of North Central Ohio in Ashland. He was 86.
Born February 7, 1928 in Mansfield, he was the only son of Martin and Appolonia "Evelyn" (Heitz) Moysi, and was graduated from Mansfield Senior High School in 1946. Later that year he entered the U.S. Marine Corps and was honorably discharged in 1952.
A lifelong member of St. John's United Church of Christ, it was there at the church that he was united in marriage with Gloria "Glow" Squires on April 13, 1952.
Dave worked at Westinghouse before joining First National Bank as a teller in the savings department. He was promoted to the position of Vice President/IRA Coordinator under Trustcorp Co. He retired from banking in 1988.
A Member of Mansfield Masonic Lodge #35, he was a 32nd Degree Mason in the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite. He was a member of Baku Grotto, Mansfield Liederkranz, American Legion Post #16 and VFW Post 3494. For over 65 years he was a member of Sons of Herman, served as past president and served as treasurer for years. He served as Grand Secretary of the State of Ohio Sons and Daughters of Herman for 50 years.
An avid bowler, Dave won the 1960 Mansfield city championship in 1960 and served as treasurer of the Mansfield Bowling Association for 32 years. Being a banker, Dave was called on to serve as treasurer or to chair fundraising efforts in countless roles across the city. Dave was president of Mansfield Evening Sertoma Club 1986-1987.
An active member of St. John's United Church of Christ, Dave served in multiple positions on council and the financial committee. Sundays started with he and Glow in church, and then the whole family gathered for a meal. Dave loved to be with them, loved to take them golfing, and loved to show them his "foot wedge."
He meticulously kept a 1929 Model "A" and 1960 Mercury Monterey, and was caught using a toothbrush to clean them. Whether it was his personal fashion, attention to financial accounts, or personal relationships, for Dave Moysi success was in the details!
He leaves a great legacy, treasured by his family, including his lovely wife Gloria "Glow" Moysi; their children Rhonda (Ron) Pore, Karen Moysi and Mark (Joan) Moysi all of Mansfield; grandchildren Renee (John) Neron, Regan Pore, Ryan (Ashley) Pore, Dustin (Megan) Moysi, Zachary (Kasey) Moysi and Ashley (fiancé Zach Roth) Moysi; great grandchildren Allie Moysi, Camden Moysi, Luca Pore, Abrianna Hardesty, Brookson Burson, Connor Moysi, Stella Pore and Dane Moysi; a nephew Robert Grove Jr.; a niece Carol Jamieson; and an aunt Helen Lincoln.
He was preceded in death by his sister Anna (Robert) Grove.
