Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Robert (Bob) C. Moss, 84, of Kansas City, Missouri passed away September 9, 2022. He was born August 1, 1938 in Kansas City, Missouri, growing up in the West Plaza neighborhood around 45th & Mercier. After graduating from Westport High School, he enlisted in the Marine Corp in 1957 where he worked with early computers in California and was honorably discharged in 1959. In 1961 he joined the Kansas City Fire Department and became a member & officer of IAFF Local 42. He was promoted to FAO, driving for Stations #35, #36, and #1 among others. His retirement in 1998 had him looking around for productive ways to spend his time. This led him to St. Joseph Hospital as a volunteer in transportation for over 20 years, the Community Blood Center as a volunteer driver with over 2500 hours, the Kansas City Miata Club, and playing washers with a group of friends. He enjoyed hanging out with the people he met. During the disaster of Hurricane Katrina, he drove a bus taking evacuees from New Orleans, Louisiana to Houston, Texas. Bob was a kind man who valued duty. He had an infectious laugh that will be missed by his family and friends.
He is preceded in death by parents Francis B. (Burr) Moss and Edith M. (Marie) Merwin; a sister Betty Saed; infant brother David Moss, and infant son Jason Moss.
He is survived by younger brother Michael Moss of Kansas City, MO; daughters Kristin Massey of Raymore, MO; Angela Moss of Kansas City, MO; and Allison Tuttle of Prairie Village, KS; sons Andrew Moss of Denver, CO and Alexander Moss of Kansas City, MO; grandchildren Jeffrey & wife Tabetha, Travis, Jake & wife Leah, Brayden, and Bennett, and 10 great-grandchildren.
Bob’s family would like to thank the staff of the Memory Care unit at Anthology on the Plaza as well as the nurses and aides with Apple Orchard Hospice for the loving care they showed him in his last year.
