February 10, 1947 – November 3, 2017

On Friday, November 3, 2017 John Moss of Kamloops, B.C. passed away suddenly at home. He was 70 years young. He had recently had knee surgery and seemed to be well on the road to recovery. Our family is devastated by his unexpected passing.

John was predeceased by his daughter Tamara Moss, his father Albert Henry Moss and mother Betteena Moss. He is survived by his wife of 45 years Margie, sons Michael, Mathew (Karen), daughter Kathleen (Vicki), granddaughter Adriana, grandson Caden, brother Rob (Gloria), nephews Philip, Christian and grandnephew Kylen.

He was born in Melbourne, Australia and immigrated, with his family, to Canada in 1954. The family made their home in Nanaimo, B.C.

John worked in a diverse number of jobs during his life time including the BC Fisheries, the BC Forest service as an Assistant Ranger, a millworker at Weyerhauser and a heavy duty mechanic at Mack Trucks, Louis Creek Mill, and Highland Valley Copper.

His favorite pastimes were cross country and ice motorcycle racing, riding his Harley and more recently driving his Triumph sports car or working in his workshop. He was a member of the GKMA, the Harley Owners club and the Old English Car Club.

He loved his children and grandchildren so much and he was so very proud of each and every one of them. He will be greatly missed by his family and all the many friends that he made.
A casual celebration of life for John will be held at the Valley First Lounge, Sandman Center on Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 1:00pm.

John always had a story to tell of his experiences in life so if you have a story about him to share with us we would love to hear them, either at the celebration of life or personally.

Memorial donations, in John’s name, to the charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.
