Moser, Raymond Robert

December 2, 1936 – April 15, 2022
at the age of 85 years:        

In Loving Memory of Raymond Robert Moser, we are saddened to announce his passing on April 15, 2022 at the age of 85 in Kelowna, BC.

Bob was born in Wilkie, Saskatchewan on December 2, 1936. He is predeceased by his father, Antone and step-mother Mary, his much beloved wife and mother of his children Grace “Bernice”, sisters Shirley(Scotty) and Bernice. Survived by his daughters Sandra(Ty) and Lynn, step-son Don, brother James(Olivia). He will also be fondly remembered and missed by his nieces and nephews, his good friends, as well as his dearest, Gladys.

Bob started his work life with Royal Canadian Navy in 1953 and was honourably discharged to join his young family late 1960. He was very proud of that time and spoke of it often.  Civilian employment included Dairyland and the then, Alberta Wheat Pool where he was aptly nicknamed “Boots” by work friends and was employed for a number of years.  In the 1970s Bob got involved in the propane industry with a friend of his and continued on in this field in different capacities and locations all over Western Canada, including the Sunshine Coast, Brooks AB, Hay River, NWT respectively.  Kamloops was where he finally left the propane industry and got into apartment complex management thru to age 65.  He moved to Kelowna, BC sixteen years later.

Bob made friends everywhere and will always be remembered as the man with a good heart, big friendly smile and cheerful, welcoming demeanour. Not often idle, he’d be busy fixing or working on something. He also loved to be outdoors camping and/or fishing whenever he got the chance.

A heartfelt thank you to all the medical staff and volunteers that assisted in Bob’s comfort and wellbeing up until he passed peacefully.

The interment will be at 1 pm at the Maple Ridge Cemetery, on Friday, August 19, 2022. A celebration of Bob’s life will be held the following afternoon at James and Olivia Moser’s home in Surrey, BC.

  1. Dad, it’s as if you wrote every word of this yourself ❤️ Love you always.

    Hi, it’s me.
    I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know I’m okay. It’s strange the way I don’t feel gone from you. I do hear you talk to me and most of the time I’m just trying to get you to feel my presence. I smile when you keep asking me for signs you set up—I promise you they will come when you least expect it. I really do try. Please stop saying you can’t feel me. When you laugh it vibrates through my being and I smile too. Feelings of guilt anger, regret and immense sadness sometimes builds a barrier between us. Everyone grieves differently, however my hope is that the signs I send you take the edge off, even for a quick moment. I would love for you to try harder to let go of those heavy layers that put the weight of the world on your shoulders. I might actually be able to come to you more easily. Finding the balance between “feeling it to heal it” and being stuck in it is a fine line. I honour how you grieve.

    No, you couldn’t have saved me. No, you shouldn’t have done more. Yes, you made the right decisions. I realize now that this earthly experience is all about finding our way back to love. All the rest is just part of the tough journey we call “life”. Thank you for letting me be your teacher. Until we meet again, promise me that you will love with all your heart, forgive in ways you’ve not thought possible, release anger that no longer serves you and slide into home plate saying “I did it! I lived for you. I honour your memory by continuing on in love with all that gives me joy and no regrets.

    Love Always,

  2. I was sad to hear l lost his friendship, big smile and many chats about fishing and his crafts of so many. Miss you my friend.
