Mr. Moss was born April 17, 1933, in Stevens Point, a son of the late Amos and Flora (Smart) Moss. He grew up in Stevens Point, attended local schools and graduated from P.J. Jacob High School. He later attended Central State Teachers College (now the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point).
He entered the National Guard in 1949 and served until he was honorably discharged in 1960.
He was married to Vivian G. Grover at St. Paul Lutheran Church on June 27, 1964.
He worked several jobs until becoming employed with Uhlemans Optical Co. He later worked at Northern Auto Supply as a parts man, counter man, and eventually became manager for a time. He retired from there in 1998.
He played in a polka band, and he and his wife maintained scrapbooks of various acts that appeared at the old Holiday Inn in Stevens Point from the time it opened in the 1960s into the 1980s. The Portage County Historical Society now displays those scrapbooks in the Synagogue Museum.
In his earlier years, he was involved with Boy Scouts and became District Executive.
