Obituary: Richard “Rick” Allen Moyser Jr.
Rick A. Moyser, 58, of Quincy, was called home on Aug. 9, 2017, following an extended illness.
He was born to Richard A. Moyser Sr. and Shirley A. Moyser at Camp Pendleton, Calif., on July 11, 1959. Rick graduated from Quincy High School in 1978. Two years later, Rick married his high school sweetheart, Deanna Benz, on July 18, 1980. They have two daughters, Charity and Angela.
Rick began his work with the Quincy Police Department in 1982 serving as a reserve officer. He also worked as a reserve sheriff’s deputy for the Grant County Sheriff’s Department. Rick also worked at Coast-to-Coast. Many customers will remember Rick in the sporting goods department, where they purchased their fishing/hunting license.
He loved his family. He wouldn’t travel without them. Rick always drove his daughters to and from school. He enjoyed the outdoors and camping trips with family and friends. Fishing trips with his wife and daughters were common. Rick was not fond of cold winters. He enjoyed sitting with his wife on the front porch during warmer months, watching the birds.
Rick is survived by his wife, Deanna; his two daughters, Charity Calloway and Angela (Justin) Purdy; brother David (Terrie) Moyser; and his mother, Shirley A. Moyser.
He is also survived by many family and friends: Terry Razey, Keith Anstine and Megan Barstow; and, last but not least, his beloved basset hound, Mater.
He was preceded in death by his father, Richard A. Moyser Sr., and a brother in blue, Scott Goodwin.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m., Friday, Aug. 18, 2017, at the Quincy Church of the Nazarene, 625 Central Ave. N. A luncheon will follow.
