Mr. Robert A. “Bob” Moss, 73, a well-known and respected woodworking contractor, passed peacefully into Eternal Life early Monday morning while in the care of Allied Services Hospice Center, Wilkes-Barre.
Born on Sunday, May 22, 1949, he was the son of Mr. Robert L. Moss, North Wilkes-Barre, and the late Mrs. Ethel Ann (Daniels) Moss, who passed in 2017.
Bob was educated in the city schools, being a graduate of the former Saint Mary's High School, Wilkes-Barre. He later furthered his education by studying accounting and finance at Wilkes College.
Following his formal education, he enlisted and proudly served with the U.S. Air Force Reserves. He began his professional career as a Latent Fingerprint Specialist with the FBI; later he was employed as an administrative superintendent with the Foster Wheeler Energy Corporation. He was most recognized as the owner and operator of Bob Moss Construction in Wilkes-Barre and Plains. It was here he was able to really utilize his creative skills building a wide variety of fixtures in homes throughout the Wyoming Valley.
His love of construction and being hands-on continued in his spare time. He was the Vice President of Wood and Production for the Luzerne County chapter of "Sleep in Heavenly Peace"; building beds for children who otherwise went without.
Bob is best remembered as being a loving devoted husband and father to his adoring family. He was blessed to be married for fifty years to his high school sweetheart, the former Charlene Tuzinski. She and the family will greatly miss his presence in their lives.
