MOSCOW, OH (FOX19) -

A high school swim coach was killed Friday in a mowing accident at his home in Moscow, Ohio, the Clermont County Sheriff's Office said.

Joseph Middeler, 63, was mowing his lawn in the 1800 block of U.S. 52 around 6:30 p.m. with a riding mower. Clermont County Sheriff A.J. Rodenberg said the riding mower rolled over an embankment and came to rest on top of him.

Rodenberg said Middeler's wife was not home at the time. She later found him at the bottom of the embankment with the mower on top of him and called 911. Middeler died from his injuries, and his death was ruled to be accidental by the Clermont County Coroner.

Middeler had just completed his 15th season as varsity boys swim coach. 

"He's going to be missed," says Senior Cody Biehle. "I mean, he was one of the greatest guys I've ever seen."

Administrators say Middeler was a dedicated to his work.

"Joe was always right there. He'd set the concession stuff up or he'd set the panels up and  those kinds of things," said Athletic Director Doug Foots. "He was always there, but he would just as soon say in the back ground and did his work that way, so he was just a very good man who had a great impact on a lot of kids." 

Visitation for Middeler will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the E. C. Nurre Funeral Home at 177 West Main Street in Amelia. Funeral services will be at 10:30 a.m. Thursday at St. Peter Church in New Richmond with the burial to follow at St. Peter Cemetery.
