WREN, Ohio — Harry Moser, 92, of Wren, passed away Wednesday morning, Jan. 9, 2019, at Majestic Care of New Haven where he had been a resident for the past three months.

He was born Aug. 2, 1926, in Wren, in the same house of his current residence to the late Earl Moser and the late Mary (Case) Moser. Harry was united in marriage to Joyce Ward on June 5, 1949, in Decatur, Indiana, and she preceded him in death on Dec. 15, 2012.

Harry was a honorably discharged veteran of the United States Army, having served during World War II and achieving the rank of Private.

He attended the Calvary Evangelical Church in Van Wert, Ohio, with his wife, Joyce prior to her death. Harry was also a member of the American Legion Post 43 in Decatur. He supported his community by being involved with the Wren Volunteer Fire Department for over 30 years and also served on the Van Wert County Sheriff’s Department as an auxiliary officer for 23 years.

Harry was a lifelong farmer and retired from Tokheim in Fort Wayne after 42 ½ years of service.

Harry loved to tinker around his farm…he had to stay busy. He enjoyed hunting and fishing. He was known to help people, which kept him busy…and didn’t know a stranger. Family was important to Harry and he followed them wherever they went. He was a caring and ornery father, which accelerated when he became a grandfather.

He is survived by his son, Larry (Lisa) Moser of Wren; daughter-in-law, Kay (Dave) Neuenschwander of Berne, Indiana; granddaughter, Amanda (Daniel) Stevens of Ohio City, Ohio; grandson, Andrew Moser of Ohio City; granddaughter, Mackenzie (Matthew) Billington of Berne, Indiana; grandson, Lane “LJ” Moser of Fort Wayne, Indiana; and two great-grandchildren, Atticus Billington and Fitzgerald Billington.

He was preceded in death by his son, J. Lane Moser; a brother, Marshall Moser; and five sisters, Leona Hunt, Ruth Bennett, Evelyn Gibbs, Audrey Sammentinger, and Harriet Krugh (twin sister).

A funeral service will be held at 10:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 14, 2019, at the Zwick & Jahn Funeral Home in Decatur with the Rev. Carol Tumbleson-Evans officiating. Interment will follow at Woodland Cemetery in Van Wert, with military graveside honors to be conducted by the American Legion Post 43 Color Guard. Family and friends will be received from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 13, 2019, and one hour prior to services Monday also at the funeral home.
