Philip D. Moyers, 67, of Stilwell, KS passed Thursday March 25, 2021 at Overland Park Regional Medical Center. A celebration of his life will be held at 10 a.m., March 31st, at Advent Lutheran Church.
Phil was born May 22, 1953 in Enid Oklahoma to Raymond and Mary Catherine Moyers. He graduated from Oklahoma State University and had a successful career in the Agricultural Insurance business. Phil retired in 2018 and immensely enjoyed his retirement. He led an active life by walking every day, volunteering at the Overland Park Arboretum and gardening in his own backyard. Phil was a member of Advent Lutheran Church.
Phil will be remembered for so many amazing qualities. He was a wonderful husband and supportive father. His children always knew that he loved them and was incredibly proud of them. They knew they could always come to him for help. Phil was hardworking and said, “if you are going to do something, do it right the first time.” Phil had a quiet, dry humor that we all enjoyed. He always had a good one liner if you listened close enough. Some of the things we will most remember was his humor, his beautiful penmanship, always playing around the yard and his energizer bunny energy. Phil always had to make sure everyone’s feet were warm. He loved to go to garden nurseries with his son and help his son in law on his many construction projects, but maybe not the decks. He will always be known to his grandchildren as “Orange Papa” because of his love of Oklahoma State. We will affectionately remember holidays that were spent together and our family trip to Sanibel Island in 2017. Phil loved the ocean and wonderful memories were made on that trip.
He was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Connie Hitchcock.
He is survived by his wife of nearly 45 years Pam A. Moyers, his children Henry V. Moyers and his wife Emily Moyers and Megan L. Watt and her husband Josh Watt, who he affectionately referred to as his “electrician friend”. Grandchildren Addyson Moyers (12), Jacob Watt (11), Lorelei Watt (9) Emma Moyers (7) and Cael Watt (6). Siblings Steve Moyers and Caroline Jones.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Heart to Heart International or the Wounded Warrior Project. Phil respected both of these foundations and the work they did around the world.
