Moynahan, John H. - Miami  
JOHN H. MOYNAHAN passed away peacefully at home on May 11, 2016 at the age of 94. John was preceded in death by his beloved wife Nancye in 2013 after almost 63 years of marriage. He is survived by his sons Jay (Susan), David (Crystal), Stephen (Lisa) and daughter Laura (Bob), 9 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. His family was of prime importance to him, and he was likewise greatly loved by all his family members. In particular he made a point to call all of his children and grandchildren weekly, and no birthday ever passed without John remembering it. John was born in Boston, but moved as a young child to Indianapolis where he was raised, as well as in Miami where his family had a second home. He attended Wabash College, and received his undergraduate degree from the University of Indiana, before entering the U.S. Navy during World War II. As part of his training for the Navy he attended Harvard Business School, and after the war received his master's degree in international management from the Thunderbird School in Arizona. He began his career with the Bank of Boston in Rio de Janiero, but moved to Miami in 1949 to assist in the family real estate business when his father became disabled, and continued in the real estate development business for over 20 years spearheading projects in Florida, Colorado and The Bahamas. It was at the Surf Club in Miami Beach where John met his future wife Nancye, and they were married at Plymouth Congregational Church. Four children followed in the next six years. In 1974, after the last child left for college, John and Nancye moved to Hong Kong where John re-entered the banking business on behalf of an international holding company, moving two years later to Barcelona with the same company. In 1979 they moved back to Miami, where John began a successful "retirement" career as a commercial real estate broker. Two years ago John and his long-time friend Taylor Larimore were honored by the establishment of the Larimore-Moynahan Trophy awarded in the Coconut Grove Sailing Club Annual PHRF Regatta, and were also recognized by the City of Miami for their contributions to youth sailing programs in Miami. Throughout his life, John was an avid outdoorsman and adventurer. There was no water-based sport in which he did not take part enthusiastically, especially sailing. His children and grandchildren were blessed to have him impart those same passions to all of them. He will be remembered always for his great humor, kindness and generosity. John will be missed by family and friends too numerous to count. In lieu of flowers, friends of John are encouraged to make a donation to Shake A Leg Miami, an organization based in Coconut Grove that assists disabled children and adults to enjoy leisure activities in the marine environment.
