George Andrew Moser, 66, was called home Friday, September 2, 2011, to the loving arms of our Lord, living his life as a servant of God, keeping his faith and devoting his life to his family and others.
Born in Wilkes-Barre, he was a son of the late Leo and Anna McClosky Moser. He attended Luzerne schools, graduated from Central Catholic, and attended King’s College. He was a life member of the NRA and the North American Hunting Club.
Through his years of illness, he never cared about himself but worried constantly about the ones he loved and put them first. He worked in construction by trade, most recently at Mariotti’s in Old Forge until he left due to illness.
He was devoted to his wife, Diane, and his family. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus, Past Presidents of the Luzerne Lions Club and the LCP Little League, a past member of the Luzerne Council, and a member of Men of Sacred Heart. He was an active member of Holy Family Parish, serving as Eucharistic minister and CCD instructor.
He was an avid deer hunter, practiced karate, played the guitar, and worked endlessly on home improvements, always lending a hammer to anyone in need.
He is survived by his wife Diane Konopki Moser, who showed unconditional love; children, Kim Marie Quinn, George P. Moser and his wife Janelle, Garrett Moser and his wife Sarah Jo; stepsons, Mark Baltuskonis and his wife Candice, Luzerne, and Matt Baltuskonis and his wife Samantha, Philadelphia; grandchildren, Melissa and her husband Kevin Landmesser, James Quinn and Brian Dietrich of Plymouth, George Andrew, Gregory, and Emily J.
