(BEAVER FALLS, Pa.) – Geneva College announces the passing of Board of Trustee and Board of Corporators member Mr. Philip C. Duguid of Meriden, KS, on Saturday, September 19. Duguid was a 1976 graduate of the college, earning an accounting business degree.

Duguid had served on the Board of Corporators since 1998 and on the Geneva College Board of Trustees since 2011.

President of Geneva College Calvin L. Troup, PhD, says, “We grieve the loss of Phil Duguid, with his family, with his church, and with the entire Geneva College Community. Phil provided more than two decades of faithful and fruitful board service, leading efforts to strengthen the mission of the College and its relationship with the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America. Most recently, he worked with board colleagues on a task force that led to the establishment of the Geneva College Foundation, a charitable organization with the sole purpose of enhancing Geneva’s mission through long-term financial strength and independence. We will miss Phil greatly and are grateful to God for his life and his faithful service to the Lord Jesus Christ with us at Geneva.”

Duguid was a member and elder of the Topeka Reformed Presbyterian Church. He was the principal owner of Duguid Construction, a single-family housing construction business in Meriden.

He leaves his wife, Eleanor (Dennison ’74), who co-owns Duguid Construction with her husband, and daughter, Rebecca (Adams), and son, Timothy ‘02, both of whom attended Geneva.
