Phillip Paul Nunemacher U.S. Veteran

June 13, 1948 - January 30, 2022

Born June 13, 1948, in Freeport, IL to Paul and Phyllis (Moehlmann) Nunemacher.

Phil was the eldest of two boys. His brother Ralph, a Vietnam veteran, perished in his 20’s. Phil carried the love of his brother in understated actions.

Throughout Phil’s elementary and high school days, he saw many areas of the USA because his father moved his family frequently for his employment working with dams. Phil did enjoy being reconnected with his family that lived in Willamina, Oregon during his senior high school days.

Phil proudly served in the U.S. Airforce May 1, 1968, through November 30, 1974. He served in the Vietnam war. As a US citizen and US Veteran, Phil took his love of his country seriously. He flew his American flag without fail every morning and took it down every evening, taking a moment to ponder his love of his country.

After Phill was honorably discharged from the U.S. Airforce, he studied and obtained his MS from Oregon State University (OSU). After graduation, he was hired and stayed on at OSU in the computer lab.

A few years later, Phil made a career move and settled in Carson City, Nevada. Until retirement, he worked as a software engineer, took time to care for his mother, and adopted a dog named Rascal. He had wonderful neighbors. They shared gardening tools & tips, stories, and furry companion walks. In Phil’s retirement era, he connected with a group of veteran friends in which he luncheoned daily at the senior center.

Phil enjoyed quail hunting with his father and brother, devoured books by the day, listened to classical music, donated to Veteran benefits, and kept in weekly contact with his relatives.

Phil died January 30, 2022, in his hometown at the age of 73 years. He succumbed to COVID19.

He was pre-deceased by his grandparents, mother, father, and brother.

He is survived by his dog Rascal, Uncle Kenneth Moehlmann (Vicki), Uncle Rodney Moehlmann (Kim), Uncle LeLand Payne, Aunt Verna Moehlmann, Uncle Robert Nunemacher, Aunt Ruth Elgin, and numerous cousins.
