In memory of
MOSS, Jim Jim Moss, 85, was born in Ingleside, Texas, on October 9, 1933, to Claude and Charlotte Baumetz Moss and died peacefully on July 6, 2019, at Cedar Park Regional Medical Center in Cedar Park, Texas. After graduating from high school in Baytown, Texas, he attended The University of Texas at Austin, where he received a BS degree in zoology. He later earned an MLA degree at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, and an MS degree in environmental science at The University of Texas at Dallas. Jim proudly served in the U.S. Navy, where he learned to fly and became a "top gun" pilot. He owned a small printing company in Austin before working for many years as a technical writer and editor, mostly with Texas Instrument in Dallas. After retirement, Jim moved to Lago Vista, Texas, where he was a member of the Planning and Zoning Commission. As a member of Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church, he served on the church council. Jim was generous with his time, talents, and resources. Meticulous and analytical in everything he did, he was perhaps most remembered for his keen intellect and inquisitive mind. A kind, gentle man, Jim had many hobbies and interests. Involved for many years with the Experimental Aircraft Association, he was in the process of building an airplane at the time of his death. He was an avid craftsman who enjoyed traveling, listening to classical music and jazz, and studying about the environment. While a member of the Professional Association for Cactus Development, he served as an editor of its journal. Jim could strike up a conversation with almost anyone and especially liked to meet new people, always seeking common interests. He was preceded in death by his parents and is survived by his former wife, Janice Roth Moss, and his friend of many years Anne Kuempel. He will also be missed by his cousins and friends. A memorial service will be held at Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church, 21900 FM 1431, Lago Vista, on July 13 at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the charity of your choice.
