Roy Mosley, 80, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, October 27, 2020 at his home. Known to many as “PawPaw Roy”, he was born on April 15th, 1940, in Glen Rogers, WV a son of the late John Moseley and Violet Stewart-Moseley. Roy served four years in the United States Marine Corps and was a Jack-of-all-trades thereafter. He diligently tried to help others learn what he had learned and took every opportunity to pass along the knowledge he had acquired with a lifetime of experience to all around him. Roy loved to spend time with his family and friends throughout his entire life. Ever present in his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren’s lives, he was a fixture around which they all drew strength.
Roy is going home to reunite with those who are in the Lord’s presence before him to include his parents John and Violet; his brothers Bill, Jack, and Ted; and his sisters Lucille, Alice, and Dixie. Roy left a lasting impression on everyone he met in life.
