Moose was a truck driver for many years with Niemuth Livestock, Faulks Bros., and then Murphy Concrete. Moose enjoyed playing cards, watching the Brewers, car racing, and the Packers.

He is survived by his siblings: Arleigh (Janet), New London; Walter (Elizabeth), Manawa; Gary (Nancy), Appleton; Norma (Dennis) Zahn, Clintonville; and Jean Smith New London. Moose is also survived by a special friend Annabelle Hauser; also nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
