Carl Adolph Moser was born in Morris, Minnesota on October 13, 1930, to Benjamin & Clara (Scheitlin) Moser. He grew up in rural Morris and attended school in Morris. Throughout his life, he worked many jobs, including: helping cousins custom combine, working at Phillips 66 gas station, sales with Minnegasco, selling real estate, and most notably helping his sons with Morris Commercial Printing. He also served his country in the United States Army during the time of the Korean War. Carl was truly thankful for the opportunities God provided as his father passed away when Carl was just 3 years old. He was always grateful to those around him.
Carl was baptized in the Apostolic Christian Church (South) in rural Morris. Reading scripture, praying and getting together to sing hymns were always part of his life’s routine. His faith in God guided him through life’s journey. It was here where he met his wife Norene (Schmidgall) and the two were wed on June 3, 1956. The couple lived in Morris, moved to Spring Valley and later returned to the Morris area, where they raised their five children. Carl and Norene were married for 66 years before Norene’s passing in 2022.
Carl enjoyed spending time with family, friends, and neighbors; attending church, reunions and get togethers. He enjoyed fishing, boating and vacations with family and in-laws. Times with family were always joyous. He always enjoyed a Sunday drive on a Tuesday with his wife taking in God’s countryside creations. Carl’s heart was always open to others, whether it was giving a ride to a stranger or teaching the kids at the resort how to water ski.
Carl died peacefully on Monday, November 20, 2023, at his home at the West Wind Village in Morris; he was 93 years old.
He is survived by his four sons: Todd (Kimberly) of Morris, Benjamin of St Paul, MN, Carter of Morris, and Kent (Amy) of Fargo; his five grandchildren: Heather Moser of Morris, Tyler (Anna) Moser of Morris, Abby, Sam, and Ellie Moser all of Fargo; 3 great-grandchildren: Mona and Renly Quiram of Morris, and Olive Moser of Morris.
