Cecil Mosser

Feb. 11, 1929-Jan. 31, 2024 

Cecil Mosser, 94, passed away peacefully from this life on Jan. 31, 2024. Rosary and celebration of life service was at 7 p.m. at Sanders funeral home on Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2024. Cecil’s family will receive friends from 6-7 p.m. at the funeral home.

Cecil was born Feb. 11, 1929, in Slaton to Louis and Margaret Mosser. 

He served in the United States Army from 1950-52, stationed at Fort Carson, Colo. 

He married Gloria Maria Griego on Nov. 24, 1958, in Slaton, where they lived a happy 65 years together. 

Cecil worked for the Santa Fe Railroad for 41 years, retiring in 1989. He then opened Cecil’s 66 Service Station in Slaton, and ran this until he turned 80 years old, when he finally retired for good. He was a longtime member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church. 

He is survived by his wife, Gloria, son, Chris, and daughter, Pam, all of Lubbock along with many nieces and nephews along with his dear sister in-law Alyce. He is preceded in death by his parents, brothers Leonard, Alvin, Aloysius, Hugo, Walter, Johnny, James and Paul, and sisters Isabel Mosser, Regina Shelton, Margaret (Keta) Gaither, Alvira Kayser and Dorothy Burton, and daughter in-law Christy Mosser.

He had a strong passion for gardening, growing some of the biggest onions around. He also loved playing dominos or working crossword puzzles and following Norte Dame sports. He had a deep faith and prayed the rosary and the St Jude prayer practically everyday. He was a man of few words, but was one of the most kind and gentle men, and would do anything for anybody.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations in his name. He supported Sister’s House – Holy Spirit Catholic Church and Father Flanagan’s Girls and Boys Town, but would be thrilled to have his memory live on by supporting any charity.
