Clyde Charles "Moose" Moravec Obituary
April 16, 1942 - February 20, 2016 Clyde Charles "Moose" Moravec, 73, passed away on February 20, 2016, at the Ridgecrest Regional Hospital in Ridgecrest, CA, after a tragic motorcycle accident earlier in the day. He is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Anne Osberg, and countless friends who loved and admired him, all of whom will miss him more than words can express. Moose was proudly born and raised in Riverside, IL. He graduated from Riverside-Brookfield High School and maintained lifelong relationships with his many friends there. The highlight of every R-B reunion was a Moosefest, named after the guy who was the life of every party, never forgot a name or a memory and always had a joke (or 10) to tell again and again. He was also a graduate of Parsons College. Moose's beloved wife, Anne, also grew up in Riverside. They met soon after Anne graduated from college and have been together ever since. They shared everything, including their love of Riverside and the time they spent growing up there. Their life together took them away from Riverside, first to Chicago, then to Dallas and finally to Los Angeles, where they've lived for the past 25 years. Moose & Anne traveled to over 135 countries. It was hard to find a place they hadn't been, often more than once. While most of their friends were going to Italy or France, they were often on their way to Borneo or Rwanda. They loved adventure and seeing the world. Moose's photography and his web travelogue, Moosetracks, were legendary. Everybody wanted on that list because they often saw pictures of places, people and things they would never see in person. Moose was a renaissance man. In his lifetime, he was a restauranteur, worked at the Chicago Board of Trade, built wooden hot tubs from scratch, remodeled houses, and managed his and Anne's properties around the LA area. He was an accomplished guitar and banjo player, as well as a photographer. He printed and bound his own photography books of their many journeys around the world. Interment arrangements are private and the family requests no flowers, please.
