Joseph Moser

Joseph Moser

On September 24, 1921 in the oilfields of Oklahoma, God blessed Roy and Mamie Moser with a son whom they named Joseph Leonard, affectionately known as “Pop.”  He was to be the oldest of four brothers, Kenneth, Bob, Paul and Tommy and three sisters, Margie, Mary, and Nancy.  He was pre-deceased by his parents and siblings, Kenneth, Bob, Paul and Nancy.  The Lord chose to take him home on May 19, 2013.

          During the end of his second year in college, WWII was about to erupt.  Knowing he might be drafted, he made a choice to join the U. S. Coast Guard where he served our country for five years.  During that time he met Audrey Bryant whom he married.  She preceded him in death in 1979.  Audrey bore him three children, Janet Brooks, (James), Lennie (Cheryl) and Marvel Combs (Gene).  He was the grandfather to Ric Rule, Lori Brooks Butler, Michael Goodson, Shea Moser, Blake Moser, Shaun Combs, and Shannon Combs Hill.  He was the great-grandfather to Isaac and Benjamin Rule, Brooke Butler and Katherine Goodson.  In 1981 Pop married Ruby Austin who preceded him in death in 1999.

           After he was called to the ministry, he served as a pastor with the assemblies of God for fifty years spending the last years of his service at Hatteras Assembly of God, Hatteras, NC.  He was a mentor, a teacher, and a loving husband and father.  A special thanks goes out to the fine staff at Winslow Memorial who worked so hard to make our father feel safe and comfortable.

           Funeral services will Friday, May 24, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at New Life Assembly of God Church with the Rev. Clay Manos officiating.  The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the church.  Burial will be at 2:00 p.m. at Chesapeake Memorial Gardens, Chesapeake, VA with military honors rendered by the William Clarence Jackson VFW Post 6060  Twiford Funeral Home, Memorial Chapel, 405 East Church Street, Elizabeth City, is serving the Moser family.  You may express condolences to the family by visiting

    My prayers for peace and comfort to the family of Mr. Moser. Losing a Father is such a sad and defining event in our lives. I did not have the pleasure of knowing Rev. Moser, but he must have been a wonderful man. He raised a wonderful daughter, Janet, with whom I am friends. God bless each of you. He is at peace now.

    Dear family of Joe, who was once family to me, when he was married to Ruby, my brother’s widow. I love Joe. We ARE brother and sister in Christ Jesus! I send my condolences to you. It is so hard to let our loved ones go. But, I think of Joe’s reward and his gain and I am happy. May you smile through your tears, remembering! God bless you. “Joy will come in the morning.” In Christ’s love that makes us one, Sybil

    My heartfelt sympathy to each of you in the loss of father. I have such fond memories of him living here among us in Hatteras Village. He was truly a wonderful minister and such a good man.

    Blessings to the Moser family. We did not have the honor of knowing “Pops”, but if he was anything like his son Lennie then we would have been truly blessed.
    He’s having a wonderful welcome home for a good and faithful servant…

    Prayers of Peace and Gods Love for the family..
    Pop has held a special place in my heart for many years, first as the father of a high school friend, and then in later years as grandfather to my daughters Jade and Courtney, when he married their loving grandmother Ruby. He added joy and comfort to her life and helped build a special bond with us as a family. “Pop, you will always hold a place of love and respect in our hearts.” We were blessed to have had your love, advice, and friendship. We each have many special memories that you helped us build. I know that you are with God in Heaven with that smile and loving heart. Praying for comfort for all during this time of loss…

    So sorry for your loss! I am working on the memorial booklet of deceased ministers for General Council in August and would love to honor Brother Moser by having his photograph in the booklet. If someone from the family could contact me I would greatly appreciate it. 877.840.5200

    Joseph Moser married my brother’s widow and was like a brother to me. I am not sure what this means, but it seems to mean that Joe completed his mission here and has gone home to Heaven! I rejoice in that for him, but for those who must adjust to his absence, I offer you my love and my prayers. Grief must have its day, but joy comes in the morning. Love in Christ knows no separation!
