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.
