VERMILION - W. Philip Moehle, Jr., 65, of Vermilion and formerly of Elyria, died peacefully Friday, July 26, 2013 at EMH Healthcare after a lengthy illness.
He was born January 16, 1948 in Elyria, where he had lived most of his life until moving to Vermilion 8 years ago.
Phil was a 1966 graduate of Elyria High School, attended Heidelberg College, and graduated from The
Ohio State University
College of Pharmacy in 1974. He enjoyed a fulfilling pharmacy career in Elyria at Hess & Hess Pharmacy and at CVS Pharmacy.
He was a member of St. Paul United Church of Christ in Elyria and a former member of St. John's United Church of Christ in Lorain, Ohio. He was a member of the Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity, former president of the Lorain County Pharmaceutical Association, and a member of the Ohio Pharmacists Association. He was also an active member of the Vermilion Boat Club, served as the club's Commodore in 2002 and as Sail Fleet Captain for several years. He was a supporter of youth sailing programs; founded the Vermilion Boat Club Junior Regatta in 1990 and served as Chair of the Inter-Lake Yachting Association Junior Regatta in 2007.
Phil was an avid skier and sailor, especially when he was able to do so with his family. He also was fond of traveling the country, always preferring to drive through the country and enjoy nature's beauty rather than fly over it.
Phil is survived by his wife of 40 years, Sue (nee Lakocy) Moehle, who kindly followed him on all of his crazy schemes. Survivors also include Matthew and Lindsey currently of Vermont, Philip and Jessica currently of Utah, Joshua and Mathew currently of Maryland, and his four grandchildren Adam, Eliana, Oliver, and Charlotte. He was preceded in death by his parents Wilton and LaRue Moehle, his sister Marianne Dombrowski, and his son Philip Paul Moehle.
A memorial service will be 10:00 a.m. Saturday, August 10, 2013 at St. Paul United Church of Christ, 9715 East River Rd, Elyria, OH 44035 with Reverend Brett Myers officiating. A private committal service will be held for the family.
