July 9, 1952 - July 1, 2016
Gregory Randall Moss, of Nampa, passed away at home on July 1, 2016 with family by his side after a courageous battle with cancer.
Greg was born in Ontario, Oregon on July 9, 1952 to Dick and Lillian Moss. Growing up in Weiser Greg excelled in sports and after high school was drafted to the military and joined the Marines Corps where he was stationed in Hawaii for four years. In 1974 he married Claudia Lee and was later divorced. Three children were born from the marriage; Courtney, Brandon and Matthew.
After his time serving in the military Greg started working for the phone company, Mountain Bell and would ultimately spend 40 years working in the industry retiring from Century Link in 2014. In 1994 he met and would later marry his current wife, Cindy Vargas.
Greg enjoyed watching his kids grow up playing sports and in recent years has been a proud grandfather loving every minute he was able to spend with his 11 grandchildren. After retiring he was able to pursue his passion of farming and raising cattle. Greg was a hardworking, honest man with a wonderful sense of humor that made him a pleasure to be around.
