Clements Moxie Obituary

Clements Charles Moxie of Natrona Heights passed peacefully on June 8, 2023, in the comfort of his home at the age of 90. Clem was born in East Deer Township on November 22nd, 1932, to late Frank C. and Mary A. (Onofer) Moxie.

Clem graduated from East Deer High School and earned an associate degree from Penn State University. He proudly served in the U.S. Army’s Infantry as a Sergeant where he was stationed in Trieste, Italy during the Korean War. Back at home, Clem was a research technician at Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company Research Center in Creighton and Harmarville, PA. He was a Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus and a member of Guardian Angels Parish, Most Blessed Sacrament Church, where he enjoyed singing in the choir. In his spare time, he enjoyed remodeling projects, woodworking, and being with his family. He frequented Starbucks, where he would send his grandchildren to bring home his usual drink, always telling them to order something for themselves. He was often seen driving in his white van, his son riding shotgun on their trips to McDonalds.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded by his son Eric C. Moxie, who passed on April 6th, 2023. He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Marianne (Rupert) Moxie, daughters, Erin Moxie-Dempster of Cabot and Kara A. Moxie-Emore (James Emore) of Westminster, Maryland; granddaughter, Kendall Emore; grandsons Kyle Dempster, Gavin Emore, and Braeden Emore; and his siblings, Francis E. (Cathy) Moxie of Springdale, Joseph C. (Gloria) Moxie of Creighton, Patricia (Anthony) Pellegrino of Butler and Marylynn (Michael) Lapato of Boiling Springs.

No visitation.  A Christian Funeral Mass will be held at Guardian Angels Parish, Most Blessed Sacrament Campus, 800 Montana Avenue, Natrona Heights at a later date.  Military honors will be accorded to him in the church.  Private interment will be at the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies, Bridgeville.

There isn’t a long enough newspaper for me to properly talk about my Pappy. He was the best husband, dad, brother, uncle, Pappy, and friend. I have so much to say, yet it feels that my words will ever be enough. There will never be a way for me to truly articulate how his passing has changed my world, and for all others who knew him. There hadn’t been a second of my life that he wasn’t present for. Now, I will forever try to figure out how to live in this world without him.

A month before his passing, he sang along to “My Way” by Frank Sinatra in his living room, surrounded by family. He sang at the top of his lungs, and I sang with him. If there is any way I can describe his life, it’s that he did it his way. My Pap was the most selfless, hardworking, and honest person I knew. His absence will never be filled and will be felt for a long time.

To be able to say that I was loved by him is an honor and a privilege. While my family and I miss him terribly, we know that he is where he wanted to be.

He’s driving in the van with Eric right now. It’s summertime and nothing has changed. Everything is good. Everything is happy. There is so much love to be had.
