Willard (Bill) Detweiler Moyer, Jr, of Lower Milford, died peacefully at home on December 25, 2021, with his family by his side. He was born in 1940 in Philadelphia to Willard Detweiler Moyer, Sr, and Augusta Moyer (McAlevy). He was one of seven children, preceded in death by his brother John, and sisters Martha Glackin, Beverly Bartholomew and Barbara Moyer.
Bill was an Air Force veteran and graduate of Pennsylvania State University, where he met his wife Susan, with whom he shared 57 years of marriage. He was employed by Air Products & Chemicals, Inc for over 30 years, and spent much of that time working internationally. Bill and Sue lived in Lancaster, Ohio, and Johannesburg, South Africa, before finally residing locally. Although he loved to see the world, he always felt most at home when his feet were planted on Pennsylvania soil. After retiring from Air Products, Bill was a partner in RMW Solutions. He was interested in history, and proud to be a descendant of General William McAlevy, who served in the Revolutionary War.
Bill was stoic, honest, and devoted to his family. Although he spent much of his time dedicated to his work, he enjoyed relaxing outdoors and looking after the family menagerie of animals. Life is full of hardships, but Bill proved to everyone that laughter is truly the best medicine - and there’s nothing that can’t be improved with a slice of chocolate cake and a scalding cup of coffee. He had a dry, quick sense of humor that applied to any situation, and was happy to share it with his family and friends.
Bill is survived by: his wife, Susan, his daughter, Jennifer, granddaughter, Natalie, great-granddaughter, Lilith, sisters Margaret, wife of Charles Weisel of Coopersburg, and Nancy, wife of Donald Bowman of Mifflinburg, brother-in-law John Buttery of Allentown, many nieces and nephews, and cats Sassy and Sweetiepie. He was an incredibly moral, kind person, and the type you don’t soon forget.
