Peyton Timothy Philpot, age 21, from Dayton, Ohio and growing up for the last five years in Fort Wayne, Indiana, passed away August 1, 2017. Peyton was a student at the University of Saint Francis in Fort Wayne, studying psychology and was active in the drama club. He graduated from Bishop Dwenger High School in 2015 where he was a star football player. He loved movies and loved Batman from the time he was a toddler. He had an amazing sense of humor and was a beautiful soul who will be missed beyond words. The world is a little darker now without him in it. He is survived by his heartbroken family- parents, Tim and Carla Philpot; sister, Jordan Philpot and her fiancé, Ethan Hess; grandparents, Ed and Sondra Matthieu of West Milton, OH and Tim Sr. and Mary Philpot of Arcanum, OH; great-grandmother, Alice Hollenback of Greenville, OH; uncles, Steve of Navarre, FL, Jim Clark (Jennifer) of Dayton, and John McCoart (Jackie) of Morehead KY, Paul (Darcus) Philpot of Dayton, OH; and many cousins, including special cousin Ted McCoart and special aunts Edith Faye Fuson, and Karen Crumley. He leaves behind many friends who will never forget him- Sam, Erin, Joey, Stoner, Aaron, Jacob, Marcus, Austin, Mike, Danny, Tommy, Mitch, Noah, Zach, Joel and so many others. He was preceded by his maternal grandparents Carl and Lois Berry of Dayton. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held 11AM, Monday, August 7, 2017 at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, 10700 Aboite Center Road, Fort Wayne, IN 46804, with calling 1 hour prior.
