Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Daniel Joseph Moser, age 66

Daniel Joseph Moser, 66, died on December 12, 2021 of congestive heart failure. He was born on July 4, 1955 in Norfolk, Nebraska to Walter and Judith Moser of Killeen, TX.  Daniel was the second of six children and spent his childhood living as a “military brat” stationed between Texas and Germany. It is of no surprise that he ended up spending his adult life serving his country in the United States Air Force for 26 years.

He fell in love and married Olivia “Jean” Phillips of Jacksonville, AR in 1980. Their 41 years of marriage carried them to Crete, Maryland, Italy, Texas and Colorado. He was a devoted father to his four beautiful children; Jennifer Hanson (Travis), Matthew (Erin), Jessica Alland (Dylan), and Juliana, who were the ultimate joy of his life, and was doubly blessed by his three grandchildren, Kaitlyn, Bella, and Asher.

Dan retired from the military in 1999 and settled in Jacksonville. He worked and retired from UPS and started again at Home Depot, where he declared his final retirement in 2019.

Dan was steadfast in his faith as a Catholic and a member of the Knights of Columbus. He attended St. Jude’s Catholic Church and also supported St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, both in Jacksonville.

Dan was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his wife, children and grandchildren, and by his siblings; John (Colleen) of California, David (Pam), Kate Cuclis (Alex), Pat (Lynette) of Texas, and Tony (Sharon) of Wisconsin. He has many other surviving relatives and a host of friends around the world. Optional to flowers, memorials may be made to the Knights of Columbus Council 11604, St. Jude’s Catholic Church, or St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, all of Jacksonville, AR.

Dan’s Visitation will be at 9:30 AM Wednesday December 22, 2021, Rosary service will be at 10:30 AM and the Mass will be 11:00 AM. All services will be held at St. Jude’s Catholic Church located at 2403 McArthur Dr., Jacksonville, Arkansas 72076.

Arrangements are entrusted to A Natural State Funeral Service, 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas. 501-982-3400.

    Condolences to Jean, the kids, and all of the Moser family. Dan and I always had good conversations and times when our families gathered at his parents home in Killeen. Lots of memories from those gatherings. I know there’s sadness at his passing, but be comforted in knowing that he is no longer suffering. May God bless all of you always.

      Daniel, my brother, you were older than me. You were so sick. We all prayed, and prayed, and prayed, the Doctors would heal you and restore you to good health.
      But, the Good Lord called you and you went to be with him. No longer suffering, no longer in pain.
      Rest well my brother, I will see you later.
      I love you very much.
      I will miss not being able to call you and hear your voice.

    It was a blessing to know this man, he was a true friend and work associate. He made us laugh alot. We all loved working with Dan. He will truly be missed,

    I enjoyed working and laughing with Dan. He was a good friend on our merchandise team at home depot. My memory of Dan will be his recognition of military veterans and his ups coworkers whom he always spoke to and thank them for their service. Dan was very kind hearted and caring, he gave me his Air Force blue/white jacket and rain coat last year, it was too small for him. He took care of young folks as well as older people. He would give associates rides home from work and assist in anyway he could. Dan i will cherish your gifts always my fellow Vet. My heart goes out to the family for which he spoke about everyday. I will miss you pal.

    My sincere sympathy to Jean and family,
    For many years Dan and his siblings were our closest cousins as we were all stationed in Germany & Killeen TX. Our families got together often. I will miss Dan’s smile, and his gift of gab. He was blessed to pass on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe and I know his faith sustained him in his final weeks. I will continue to pray for his soul and for his family as they grieve the loss of a good husband and father/grandfather.

    My condolences to Jean, Jennifer, Matthew, Jessica and Juliana, and the grandchildren. Dan will be greatly missed. Was always a pleasure to see him, because you knew good tomes were ahead. Also to John, Dave, Kate, Pat and Tony, my sympathies. Sorry I couldn’t make it today, but prayers are with you all.
