Michael J. Moyle Obituary
MICHAEL J. MOYLE, J.D., 3-21-47 TO 7-1-11 Michael J. Moyle, known as "Mickey", died suddenly on Friday, July 1, near his home in the Villas of Linfield, Limerick Township, Montgomery County, where he lived with Lynne, (Boury), his wife of 30 years. At the time of his death, Mr. Moyle was Vice-President of Corporate and Fiscal Operations of Gaudenzia, Inc., a Pennsylvania based non-profit organization dedicated to providing addiction treatment and recovery support services in Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland. Born and raised in Wheeling, West Virginia, Mickey graduated from West Virginia University School of Law, practicing law in Wheeling. He was a business executive, and also served as an elected legislator before coming to Pennsylvania in 1980. Mickey joined the executive staff of Gaudenzia in 1998 as the Director of Fiscal Operations. In the ensuing years, he was crucial in helping to shepherd the organization's expansion into the largest of its kind in Pennsylvania, and extending services into Maryland and Delaware. Prior to joining Gaudenzia, he was employed by The Caron Foundation as the Chief Financial Officer. In recent years Mickey's role with Gaudenzia became increasingly critical as the organization tripled in size, complexity, and scope. He was a man of extensive skill, a clear thinker, and valued what he termed "Deep Smarts." He always remembered where he came from and accepted people as they were. He recognized ability, willingness to learn, decency and commitment to the mission of the organization. These qualities are echoed in comments made by those who worked with him. He was trusted because he was trustworthy. He was loved because he knew how to love others. He was valued because he valued others. Mickey is survived by his wife, Lynne, two daughters, Christine (Jordan Kough) and Stephanie (Jim Albert), grandchildren Michaela, Nicole, Alyssa and Christopher, as well as his father John P. Moyle , (the late Mary Jane Corcoran Moyle), a brother John P. Moyle, Jr., and sister Kathy Tucker-Cupp. The family participated in Christine's wedding this past Memorial Day weekend, a cherished event, as it is for so many families. It was even more so for the Moyle family since Christine had served a tour of duty in Iraq with the United States National Guard and had returned home safe and sound. On June 18 of this year, Gaudenzia held its annual presentation and acknowledgement of those who graduated from its treatment programs within the past year. The custom in recent years is to also recognize a non-client who exemplifies the values and qualities espoused by the organization and who has given of themselves in service to others. This recognition - the Gaudenzia Honorary Graduate Award - has deep meaning and its recipient is a closely held secret. This year, the award was given to Mickey and all agreed, no one deserved it more. The award is presented each year by Michael Harle, President and CEO of Gaudenzia, who had a deep personal and professional partnership with Mickey. Together, and with other members of a dynamic team, they moved the organization into broader and deeper areas in providing critical services to countless individuals and families. As Mr. Harle said at the time of the graduate award ceremony and again after the loss of Mr. Moyle, "I am so grateful that I got to say publically what I've so often said privately about Mickey. We would not be where we are without him. He was a man like few others and I am honored to have had all this time with him." Richard Esterly, with whom Mickey had been closely associated as friend and colleague for over thirty years, referred to Mickey as "Everybody's Guy", a title perfectly suited - accurate, simple, brief, clear, encompassing, and an infallible description of who this man was. In his work and personal life, he positively impacted literally thousands of people. He was "Everybody's Guy." Yet with all he did professionally and in his family life, he still found the time and energy to develop into an avid golfer and an enthusiastic and competitive Pickleball player. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a public Memorial at the Radisson Valley Forge Hotel, 1160 First Avenue, King of Prussia, on Tuesday, July 12, 2011, at 4 p.m. Memorial contributions in lieu of flowers may be sent to Gaudenzia, Inc., 106 West Main Street, Norristown, PA, 19401. Condolences may be given to the family at www.DevlinRosmosKepp.com . Arrangements are by the Devlin-Rosmos-Kepp Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Inc., 517 S. Main Street, Phoenixville.
