Dr. Ronald Moyer, beloved husband of Lynne (Burak) Moyer and proud father of Daniel, Matthew, Melanie and Andrew, passed away on Saturday, November 13, 2021.

Ron grew up in Reading, Pa where he played at their bungalow on the Maiden Creek, attended Reading High School, and then Albright College, where he met his wife Lynne. Ron then went on to Rutgers University and earned his Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology. His career began as a Lt. in the Navy at the Oakland, California Naval Hospital. He continued helping people after moving to Warsaw, VA, then to Aniston, Al, and finally to Chesterfield, VA where he started his own private practice.

Ron was a loving, compassionate person, who touched many lives. The life changing influence he had on others was reflected in the stories he held on to the longest and were dear to his heart. He was a friend to all, a man of faith, a reader, an educator, and an avid sports fan. His determination to body surf, no matter the conditions at Duck, NC, was a part of his fun loving spirit. He could put a smile on your face in a heartbeat! His favorite pastime was collecting and listening to “oldies” music, which was played in his home until his final days.

He will be greatly missed by his wife, Lynne, of 53 years, his children Danny, Matthew and wife Carrie, Melanie and husband John (O’Brien), and Andrew and wife Nicole. His grandchildren Zachary, Devin, Molly, Adam, and McKenna will always hold a special place in their hearts for their “Papa.” We know he will be at Peace now and reunited with his best friend, Harry Knight, as Heaven’s gates open to greet him. May he rest in Peace for Eternity!

Dr. Moyer was the most compassionate man I have ever met. He had a heart of gold. I used to work for him and back in 2017 for Christmas I made sure I got him this CD because he loved his blues and we talked about all the old school players all the time ! He was such a joy to talk with. RIP . 😇

I was Lynnie’s roommate in college, from half-way though our freshman year, until we graduated. I was a psych major, so I knew Ron through my classes, and was thrilled when he and Lynnie got together. I remember so well that crooked little smile of his, his sense of mischief and delight, and how happy the two of them were together. Some relationships are just so solid, you know they were meant to be, and theirs was definitely one of them! Although our life paths took us to opposite sides of the continent so we were rarely able to get together in person, we’ve always kept in touch. I wish here to honor and celebrate Ron for the life he built together with Lynne: the love they shared, and the family they raised. And I am certain that Ron did much in his practice to ease pain and suffering, and to make the world a better, brighter place for so many people. May he rest in a peace that is richly deserved.

Ron was such a welcoming mentor to me when I was first licensed as a clinical psychologist. He invited me to join the private practice he and Dr. George Ritchie shared many years ago. Later, Ron and I worked together for a number of years as partners with James River Psychotherapy Associates.

Ron had such a compassionate heart. He was also fond of telling stories…often funny and long stories! He loved his work and his family. He was a gift in my life and in the lives of many others.

I have many fond memories of our college years at Albright. As fellow psychology majors , Ron and I had most of our classes together. We also were cheerleaders together. Lynne, I feel glad that we kept in touch through the years at holiday time so we knew about your growing family and careers. We also were happy to meet at reunions and once enjoyed a surprise meeting in Williamsburg. We are thinking of you and your family, Lynne, and Bob and I send our sincere sympathy . Mimi
