Obituary for Philip Byron Fleck

Philip B. “Phil” Fleck, of Oley, passed away peacefully at the age of 77 in his home surrounded by his family on May 24th, 2021. Phil was preceded in death by his father, Byron, mother, Phyllis (Bridgeman) and brother, Daryl. Phil was born on May 6th, 1944 in Cheltenham, England and arrived in the United States at the age of 2 on the Queen Mary. Phil earned a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Lehigh University in 1967. He attended University of Pennsylvania for graduate work in mechanical engineering and also attended the Advanced Management Program at Harvard Business School.

Phil designed and built medical devices for most of his professional career. He was employed by Atlas Chemical Industries and Rockwell International, then continued his career as an engineer at Arrow International for over 34 years, retiring as President and COO in 2005, with oversight of worldwide R & D and manufacturing. Upon his retirement from Arrow, Phil continued working in medical technology, serving as a Director at venture capital firm, Norwich Ventures. Phil was an inventor of multiple patents throughout his career, served on the board of several medical startups, and was on the executive board of the Life Science Greenhouse of Central Pennsylvania. In addition to his professional work, Phil was also very community minded and philanthropic. He previously served on the boards of the Hawk Mountain Council BSA, Penn State Berks Campus, Burn Prevention Foundation, Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles, Manufacturers Association of Berks County and the Berks Economic Partnership.

Phil always had a quest for learning, knowledge and conversation. He had numerous hobbies including photography, travel, antique stereos, stamp and vintage train collecting. Phil was particularly passionate about collecting and restoring classic automobiles. He was an avid member of the car collecting community and judged at numerous concours events around the country.

His greatest love was his family: He was married to his wife Judith (Steurer) on October 7, 1967 and enjoyed 54 incredible years together. He had two children, Jennifer and Jonathan, husband of Daphne (Palmer), and four grandchildren, Nicholas (Kline), Devon (Kline), Jonathan “JP” Fleck and Jacob Fleck.

I am saddened on hearing of Phil's passing. Although I haven't seen him in quite some time, he was a very influential person in my life and career.
Please take comfort that he had a full life, and was loved and respected by many.
I will always remember the April Fool's joke Lisa Laity and I played on Bob Erb which escalated to Phil.
Phil - thanks for the memories.

Uncle Phil.

My dearest Uncle Phil,

Words cannot express the sadness I feel knowing the loss,

As my mind fills with the childhood memories I have of you.

The excitement of knowing you were coming had me jumping as it grew,

Filling with the sounds of you, the click clack of your loafers as my heart leaped to see you.

The boom of of your hellos as your voice expressed the warmth of your love,

The reach of your arms as they lifted me up, the clicks of your camera as it captured moments.

Moments of joy from the love you shared at family gatherings, your slide shows, Grammy’s five o’clock dinners, and trips to Cape May shores.

All who knew you were impacted by the breadth of your character, the love of your heart as a measure, the kindness towards others you have shared.

As I say good-bye, in my heart I will always remember you.

Your loving niece- Audrey
