4 Condolences to William “Bill” Moss

  1. Cindy Cook says:

    My husband, Randy & I knew Bill thru our friends, Dannie & Carla Scott. We always enjoyed his company & will truly miss seeing him @ the Scott’s house. Please know you & your family are in our thoughts & prayers.

  2. David Finnell says:

    Bill was a wonderful next-door neighbor — friendly, helpful, tactful, and interesting. He welcomed us with a smile to the neighborhood the day we moved in and was generous with his help in the years to come.

    We will miss Bill’s daily routine of walking out to his workshop in the mornings, his dogs at his heels, and of sitting around a bonfire in his backyard in the evenings.

    To Iris we extend our heart-felt sympathy.

  3. John G Monroe says:

    Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead, and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts.
    John, Vicki and Kelly Monroe

    Anyone who knew Bill will surely know what a unique individual he was, and how hard it will be to ever meet anyone like him. How many blacksmith, woodworkers, former Marines are there in the world? He is probably up in heaven , having a Michelob Light, and creating some masterpiece to be hung by the pearly gates. Chesty Puller might be giving him a project to work on that needed to be done yesterday, maybe a “Man Cave”. All who knew him will miss him.
