Jack Cameron Moss said his final farewell on Thursday, March 9, 2023, having lived to be 99 years of age. He joins his loving wife, Roberta, in heaven.
Jack was born on February 12, 1924 in Spokane, Washington. He and his younger brothers, David and Coleman, were raised in Sacramento, California by their mother, Molly, with the help of their oldest brother, Blair, who was a like a father to the younger boys. Jack was attending High School in Sacramento during World War II. On December 7, 1941, Pearl Harbor was attacked and America, having been neutral until that time, was officially at war. On that day, Jack heard the call to serve his country and he left high school to join the Marines. After serving four years with the Marines, Jack joined the Air Force, where he learned to fly. During his four years with the Air Force, Jack developed a passion for Aviation that stayed with him for the rest of his life. Following his time in the service, Jack became a pilot and went on to fly with TWA Airlines for more than 30 years.
In 1953, Jack married the love of his life, Roberta Probasco, in Tampa, Florida. Together they raised three wonderful children, Thomas, Kenneth, and Patricia. Jack and Roberta followed the kids and their families to Colorado in 1993. Jack was a man of great faith and attended services at LifeBridge, until his health would no longer allow him to do so. He was a model train and railroad enthusiast and had built a huge model in his basement that he donated to a model train organization after Roberta’s passing. He also built and flew model airplanes. Jack enjoyed singing and was a member of the Longs Peak Chorus in Longmont. Every year since his retirement, he attended every retirement dinner, convention and get-together held by TWA Airlines.
Jack loved his family dearly. He will be missed.
Jack was preceded in death by his loving wife, Roberta Moss, his mother, Augusta “Molly” Briggs and by his older brother, Blair Moss. He is remembered by his brothers, David Moss and Coleman Moss; his children, Thomas Moss (Tawny), Kenneth Moss (Paula), and Patricia Moss (Russell Crawford); and by his grandchildren, Cameron, Trevor, Kyle and Torrie.
Per his wishes, Jack will be placed to rest with his wife at Foothills Gardens of Memory in Longmont after a private family ceremony. Cremation entrusted to Ahlberg Funeral Chapel in Longmont. Fond memories of Jack and words of condolence for his family are welcome at www.ahlbergfuneralchapel.com.
