Robert B. “Bob” Moss

September 01, 1934 ‒ November 07, 2018

Mount Vernon, Ohio

Robert Bernhard “Bob” Moss, 84, of Mount Vernon went home to his Savior surrounded by family on Wednesday evening, November 7, 2018 at the Whispering Hills Care Center in Mount Vernon, Ohio. Born in Columbus, Ohio on September 1, 1934 to the late Clara Marie (Jessing) and Charles Moss, he was a descendent of Msgr. Joseph Jessing, the founder of the Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio and a dedicated believer in the Catholic faith and way of life.

He was preceded in death by his wife Sandra (Dickerson) Moss in 2013.

Bob was an avid Cleveland Browns fan and lifelong critic. Bob was a HUGE fan of Woody Hayes and THE Ohio State Buckeyes, with many hats to prove it. For many years he was a Redcoat at Ohio State football games and a dedicated servant to passionate football fans whenever possible.

Having worked for Ohio Bell as a payphone change collector, line technician (who despised gloves), and in dispatch, he was also an active member as a Telephone Pioneer charity organization and retired after 39 years of service.

Bob was a passionate member of the Knights of Columbus, Council # 847 and the Father John Baptist Lamy Assembly 2970. He was extremely proud of his membership and the many friends he made and those he helped through his participation.

Bob loved his wife Sandra for 58 years; took vacations to Hawaii, Rome, and numerous charter bus excursions with friends from the greater Mt Vernon area; he was a little league football coach, an avid watcher of Western movies, and a Santa Claus lookalike who gave big-bear hugs. Grandpa, dad, papaw, Bob, was a big personality with a big smile who was easy to love and hard to forgot.

Bob is survived by his children: Karin (and James) Lee, Tina (and Mark) Carothers, Bob Moss (and Diana McClellan); his grandchildren: Benjamin (and Mary) Lee, Emily Davis, Nathan Lee, Robert Moss, Molly Davis, Kyle Moss; and his great-grandchildren: Grace & Alice Lee, and Lilly Moss.

The family will receive friends from 1-3 and 6-8 p.m. on Monday, November 12, 2018 at the Flowers-Snyder Funeral Home, 619 East High St., Mount Vernon. The Rosary will be recited and the Knights of Columbus will have a Chalice and Sword presentation following the evening visitation.

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at Saint Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, Mount Vernon.  Burial will follow in Saint Luke Catholic Cemetery, Danville.

The family would like extend special thanks to the staff of Whispering Hill Care Center and Kindred Hospice for their exceptional care and dedication to the quality of life for Bob.

  • Dear Karin, Tina and Bob,

    I was with great sadness that we found out that Uncle Bob had passed away. we wanted to offer you all my deepest sorrow at your loss. Uncle Bob spent many hours with me when we were all little kids. I knew and respected your Dad deeply in many ways. He took me many places and let me stay at your home many times in Columbus when I was younger. He was always there if I ever really needed his help. He will be missed by all.
    I am sorry this note is a bit late but my wife and I have lived in Wisconsin for the past 9 years and we do not hear much news from Ohio. Just know that our hearts are with you all in your time of loss.
