Phillip Cartmille Obituary
Cartmille, Phillip
1935 - 2017
Phillip Lee Cartmille, 82, of Upper Arlington and the Hocking Hills, Ohio, passed away at his home on November 21, 2017. Born June 2, 1935 he was raised on the "Hilltop" in Columbus, Ohio. Phil graduated from West High School and The Ohio State University with a BS in Industrial Design. Preceded in death by his first wife Ruth (Loechler) Cartmille. Phil is survived by his wife, Dorthea Dutro; sons, Mark (Laura) and David (Marybeth); grandchildren, Katy, Brooke, Cassidy, Alex, Cole; and great grandchild, James. Phil, never a critic, was an uncommonly kind and generous man, endearing himself to many people throughout his life. He could hammer a nail straight, restore an old car, paint a beautiful picture and capture the essence of any situation with perfect words as his "News from the Hills" stories showcase. Phil was active in the Hocking Hills region, a place near to his heart since first visiting as a young Boy Scout. He gladly volunteered time at the regional Welcome Center and also received a volunteer of the year award in 2012 for his work with the Appalachia Ohio Alliance, a land conservancy group. Phil, a self-taught genealogist, traced four family lines back to the 1600's. This was a labor of love for a family he truly cherished. He could keep a secret, lessen a burden, share a laugh and store tender moments. His absence will be ever present for those who loved him, but good memories abound. As Phil was always a caregiver to dogs that needed a home, contributions in his memory to the shelter of your choice would be appreciated. It was his wish that there be no formal memorial service. Family has entrusted Schoedinger Northwest Chapel with final arrangements. To sign Phil's online guestbook or to share a memory, please visit www.schoedinger.com.
