Thomas Byrd Moseley, Jr., 91, died peacefully December 31, 2006. Services will be at 1 p.m., Friday, January 5, 2007, at Clifton Funeral Home followed by a graveside service in Our Savior's Lutheran Cemetery. A reception will follow at his home, known to many simply as "The Ranch."

Thomas was born in Texas to the late Thomas B. Sr. and Mary A. Moseley. The oldest of six children, he became the breadwinner of his family at 19, when his father died unexpectedly. The Great Depression raged, but the family persevered. Thomas's career as an electrical engineer took him to Europe, Asia, the Holy Land, Africa and South America. He once met the pope in Ecuador to dedicate a radio station. Thomas worked for the 8th Service Command at Fort Sam Houston during World War II. He married Gloria Thornton on Aug. 10, 1940, and they raised eight children in Dallas. Thomas retired near Clifton, and got busy with building projects, growing anything he could sprout and reading hundreds of books. He wrote two books on family history and dozens of letters to the editor. Thomas joined the Internet online community and actually built his own computers.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Gloria, on Jan. 6, 2006.

Survivors include his daughters: Mary Lynda Burke, Bernadette Moseley, and Laura Moseley; sons: Thomas B. Moseley, III, Justin Moseley, Eric Moseley, Jerome Moseley, and Mason Moseley; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren; a great-great-grandchild; sisters, Lois Garner and Janice Kay Lonadier; brother, Jack Moseley; other relatives and many friends.
