Virgil D. MochelA Great Depression Survivor and Winner
Virgil D. Mochel was born in a farm near South Bend, Indiana during the Great Depression, and growing up in one of US history’s most trying periods had made him grow spine of steel and a man who thoroughly enjoys the simple pleasures of life.
Aside from being a husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, Virgil is also a researcher with a PhD in physical chemistry, a writer, a musician, and a play director and producer. But amongst all this profession and titles, the one Virgil invested most of his time lately was with being a writer—more specifically, becoming a family historian and story keeper. With the books he published with PageTurner Press and Media as proof of these endeavors.
With PageTurner, Mochel had published Virgil’s Story, which tracks the movement of his European ancestors before their migration to the New World. Here, he also shares the life journey he and his wife, Marian, had since the start of their relationship. He also published A Friendly King, a story of their Border collie who had befriended everyone in their community and had become the neighborhood dog.
