Obituary for Kenneth Paul Mosby

Kenneth Paul Mosby, 86 of Sedalia, MO, passed away on Monday, August 27, 2018 at his home. He was born on January 19, 1932 in Sedalia, the son of George and Wilma (Mahnken) Mosby, who preceded him in death. 

On July 17, 1950 in Sedalia, MO, he was united in marriage to Bettie Juanita (Neitzert), who preceded him in death.

He enjoyed word search puzzles, small-town country shows, his beloved dachshunds Happy, Garfield, and Olive, and visiting with his buddies on the Sedalia Fire Department. His dachshunds, Happy, Garfield, and Olive were a source of comfort following the death of his wife. And as always, he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. Two special friends, Mark Barnes and Bob Mann faithfully called each week to visit. Those phone calls meant so much to him.

Besides his parents and wife, he was preceded in death by a grandson, Joshua Wade Downing.

Funeral services will be held at 10:00 am, Thursday, August 30, 2018 at Rea Funeral Chapel, Sedalia, MO with Rev. Cathy Jurgens, officiating.

My deepest condolences to the family of Kenneth Mosby. He was always kind to me and very soft spoken. My heart breaks for the loss that I know his daughters and grandchildren feel. I will always think fondly of him and I am very saddened to hear of his passing. Sending my love to Linda, Carol, Janice, and Janet.
