Gary Wayne Moser

Gary Wayne Moser passed away at St. Anthony’s Hospital from heart failure on September 30, 2014. He was born in Price, Utah, on July 9, 1943, to Jack and Pearl Moser and resided there until his family moved to Carbondale, Colorado, in 1959. He graduated from Roaring Fork High School in 1961. Gary served in the Army for 3 years, including a tour in Korea. He returned to Carbondale and worked at Mid-Continent Coal Mine until moving to Denver in 1965. He worked on the construction of the Eisenhower-Johnson tunnel at the Continental Divide in 1968. Shortly after, he started his career with PPG Industries until his retirement in 2005.

Growing up as a child, Gary enjoyed watching the New York Yankees. After his move to Colorado, he quickly became a fan of major league sports in Colorado. Gary took great pride in being an avid Broncos, Rockies and Nuggets fan. In the summers, he spent time in the Colorado mountains fly fishing and enjoying the company of his family. He also was known to drop a few coins at the casinos in Black Hawk.

Gary is survived by his son Jeffrey Moser of Sterling, Colorado; two sisters, Sharon Survis of Mesquite, Nevada, and Bonnie (Terry) Lookhart of Paonia, Colorado; two brothers, Ken Moser of Glenwood Springs, Colorado, and Dean (Doris) Moser of Fruita, Colorado. He is also survived by four grandchildren, Bryce, Cordell, Dalton and Alicia Moser of Nickerson, Kansas; and numerous nieces and nephews.
