In Loving Memory – Jack “Jackie” Moser

Jackie “Jack” Moser, passed away peacefully at Parkwest Hospital in Knoxville on Friday February 17, 2017, surrounded by his loved ones. Jack was born on January 9, 1931 in New Harmony, Indiana, where he spent his childhood years. He was a member of Tuckaleechee United Methodist Church in Townsend, TN of which he spent many years as a Sunday School teacher and occasional fill-in pastor. Jack was a Navy veteran and served in the Korean War. He was an avid outdoorsman and loved hunting and fishing with Carl, as well as golf and anything UT Vols or Lady Vols. Jack was a self-taught but accomplished artist best known for his series of eight prints of the primitive Cades Cove structures in the Great Smoky Mountains Park. He met his beautiful bride, Faye, while on port call in Washington D.C. in 1953 and they celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary on December 12, 2016. Jack served as a Methodist minister from 1958-1974 in the Holston Conference, and later worked at Asbury Acres retirement home before spending many years at Schlegel’s Mfg in Maryville, TN from which he retired with his wife Faye, in Townsend, TN. Post full-time retirement he spent several years working part-time at Dollywood operating the kid rides, customary to his love for children. Jack never met a stranger and was one of the friendliest people you would ever hope to meet. His goal was to always make you smile, or even better, laugh. Ask anyone who knew him. Preceded in death by his parents, George and Jessie Moser; and sister, Phyllis Powers. Survived by his wife, Faye; son, Michael, grandchildren, Meghan and Andrew; and multiple nieces and nephews.
