Philip L. Pyles, III, age 79, of Pataskala, OH passed away September 4, 2022 at home surrounded by the love of his family. Retired from Custom Air, a retired reserve Columbus police officer, and a veteran of the US Army. Phil had a great sense of humor, he always left a loving lasting impression on everyone, he would tell you all the best dad jokes with such a easy smile and laugh. Phil was the type of person that could strike a conversation with anyone, he never knew a stranger. Phil was the best husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather and great-grandfather anyone could ever ask for. He loved everyone unconditionally and was always a giver. Phil loved his family and friends. He enjoyed traveling with family and friends on numerous vacations, and weekly family gatherings. He watched Cash Explosion every Saturday night and OSU football games. He loved fishing, going to the casinos, or just getting in the car for a drive to see where you would end up to get something to eat. He had a love for food and enjoyed cooking, he was famous for his spaghetti and chocolate fudge. Phil loved to get with family and friends to tell stories of the past. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Mary Ann; children, Brett (Amber Lininger) Pyles, Michelle Weber, Kimberly (Howard) Aston, Amy (Jason) Herring; 8 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren. Phil was one of the strongest, cragious people we have ever known with his will to live and never give up. He lived by sharing his love, smile and laugh to those around him along with his beautiful blue eyes, he will forever be missed.....until we meet again. Friends may call at the Moreland Funeral Home, 55 E. Schrock Road, Westerville, Thursday from 3-7 p.m. followed by a service at 7 p.m.. Pastor Robert Teal officiating.
