Rick E. Moss, 71, of Davenport, IA passed away unexpectedly on Friday Jan. 14, 2022.
Rick was born on July 5, 1950 in Spring Valley, IL. He was united in marriage to his beloved wife, Kathleen “Kathy” Moss, for 50 years.
Rick worked as a CNC machinist at Caterpillar for 10 years before moving his family to Davenport to work for the Arsenal. Rick then took a sales position with Komet of America Incorporated where he retired after 30 years.
Rick loved time with his family and spoiling his “grand dogs”. He especially treasured time spent hunting and fishing with his sons and his fishing buddy Brent. He will always be remembered for his knack of casting his line where ever someone else got a hit and his role as “equipment manager”. Rick was also a very skilled carpenter and took pride in building custom items for his family and working on special projects for his daughter Jaime.
Those blessed to know him will always remember his loving smile watching his grandkids playing sports, his mischievous grin when slipping a treat to himself or the dogs, and the sparkle in his eye when he spoke about his family.
Those left to honor his memory include his beloved wife, Kathy; son Brian (Angie) Moss; son Kevin (Wendy) Moss; daughter Jaime Moss; grandchildren Taylor, Carmen, Ellamae, Michael, Tylor, Alyssa, Justus, Nathaniel, Logan; three great grandchildren; and his grand dogs Coco and Penny, all of Davenport.
He was preceded in death by his cherished son Craig, sister Sheryl Troyan and parents Eldon and Ella Mae Moss.
A visitation where his family will receive friends from 5-7 pm on Wednesday, January 19, 2022 will be held at Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church, Davenport. A Memorial Mass to celebrate the life of Rick Moss will be held at 10am on Thursday, January 20, 2022, also at Our Lady Victory. Memorials may be made to the Iowa Donor Network.
