Mr. Moser served our country in the United States Army during WWII in the Pacific Theater. He was awarded the Purple Heart and the Army Solders Medal for heroism. Bob and Alice moved to Albuquerque in 1951 and he later retired from Mountain Bell Telephone Company. Bob then pursued his passion for professional photography opening Moser Studio with his sweetheart Alice. They were members of Hoffmantown Church for many years where Bob enjoyed singing with the Young at Heart Choir. He had extensive historic and geographical knowledge and love for his adopted state of New Mexico. He became known to some as "Petro Bob" for his interest, study and photography of petroglyphs.
