He served his country admirably as a Marine in the Korean Conflict.
He is survived by his son, Jimmy (Joyce) Moss of Hathaway; two sisters, Vivian Trahan and Ruth Duhon, both of Jennings; two grandchildren, Chad Royer and Wallace Moss; four great-grandchildren, Madison Moss, Morgan Kershaw, Dillon Royer and Ashton Royer; one great-great-grandson, Benjamin Breaux; and his best friend, Albert Kibodeaux.
