Donald H. Moyer III, 61, Clarks Summit, died Wednesday.
Born in Philadelphia in 1959, he was the son of Carlene Howard, Clarks Summit, and the late Donald H. Moyer Jr. A graduate of Abington Heights High School, class of 1977, he was a four-year letterman and co-captain of his high school wrestling team. Before his retirement, he worked for the Pennsylvania American Water Company for more than 38 years.
At 35, he ran for Clarks Summit Council, eventually becoming council president. In his dozen years on council, he listened to the concerns of the public, became knowledgeable on the issues, and was a quiet influential voice to the people of his community.
He was an active member of Our Lady of the Snows Church, the Clarks Summit Fire Company and Abington Sportsman's Club. He was a past worshipful master of Waverly Lodge 301 in 1985, and an instrumental part in both his sons becoming Eagle Scouts with Troop 160.
He was a devoted father, son, brother and family man that was considered the go-to guy for any problem that needed to be solved without ever asking for anything in return.
Surviving are two sons, Bradley Donald Moyer and his fiancé, Danielle Rohaly, and Gregory (Grizz) Moyer, all of Clarks Summit; a brother, Al Moyer and his wife, Daniela of Blakely; a sister, Debbie Zborovian and her husband, Jack of Duryea; niece and nephews, Matthew Moyer, Angela and Michael Curmaci.
He was also preceded in death by his nephew, Joseph Curmaci Jr.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday at 9:30 a.m. at Our Lady of the Snows Church, 301 S. State St., Clarks Summit, by Monsignor Joseph G. Quinn, pastor.
The family will receive friends on Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. at Lawrence E. Young Funeral Home and Cremation Services Inc., 418 S. State St., Clarks Summit.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Waverly Masonic Lodge 301, 118 North Abington Road, Clarks Green, PA 18411, or the Clarks Summit Fire Company, 321 Bedford St., Clarks Summit, PA 18411.
