Phillip Wettrich

Philip “Phil” Wettrich, 82, of Lucas, passed away on Monday, June 15, 2015, in his home, surrounded by his family.

He was born on February 20, 1933 in Cleveland, OH. Although he lived in many states, his love of Cleveland sports never left him. No matter what season, he mastered the art of channel surfing so he wouldn’t miss a score.

Phil was a Korean War Vet, served as governor of Moose Lodge 341, was a lifelong salesman, and an avid golfer.

He is survived by his children, Theresa (Cliff) Peters, Phil “Bubba” (Vicki) Wettrich, Dianna Wettrich (Barry Bundy), and Mike (Sue) Wettrich: loving grandsons, Andrew and Alex Wettrich; one niece; and seven nephews.

He was preceded in death by his daughter, Kristina Wettrich; sister, Julie Rice; brother, Bill Wettrich; parents, Marion and William Wettrich; and longtime partner, Pauline Newell.

The family would like to acknowledge Julie Fogle, Rachelle Coleman, Allison Johnson, Jodi Johnson, and Gene Moyer, for the care they provided making it possible for us to keep our dad at home. A special thank you to Lisa Brown and Dan Dickman for the spiritual support given to our dad.
