It is with deep and profound sadness that we announce the passing of John Richard Clyde Moss on July 18th, 2020. He is predeceased by his parents, James and Tryphena, sister Roma (Gunnar) Laurell, niece Christine Laurell, brother Albert and father-in-law Maxwell Bradley. Leaving to mourn our sad loss is his wife of 47 years, Gloria and sons Clinton (Christina) and Chad, grandchildren Maxwell and August and mother-in-law Nora Bradley. Also, his sisters Queena (Ronald) Healey, Vera (Michael) Deraps, sister-in-law Florrie Moss, niece Cathy Moss (Gary Powell), brothers-in-law Fred (Roberta) Bradley, Angus (Deanne) Bradley, along with many other relatives and dear friends. Clyde loved to tell stories that would leave his audience in fits of laughter. Let us tell you a little of his story now.
Clyde was born and raised in Happy Adventure, Newfoundland. Upon graduating high school in Eastport, he sailed briefly on Crosby Supply ships in Eastern Canada and overseas. Clyde married the love of his life, Gloria, in 1973, while working as a linesman with Newfoundland Power. Clyde continued with Newfoundland Power and progressed through various positions and retired from the technical department in 2005. Clyde and Gloria raised sons Chad and Clinton in Gander and moved back to Happy Adventure upon the conclusion of their working careers. Along the way, and throughout retirement, Clyde built homes, piers, boats, campers, cottages, cabins, sawmills and farms. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and time in the woods, and later in life derived great pleasure from travelling to southern destinations. He especially enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren Max and Auggie, and did so on many occasions in Edmonton, Calgary, Phoenix, Houston, and at home in Newfoundland. He is gone, but we are blessed with the many gifts he left behind. A legacy of working harder than hard, undying love for his family and an indominable spirit. He never ever gave in to the adversity that he encountered in life, and only relinquished when faced with the insurmountable. The reward for his perseverance? A life well lived full of accomplishment, love, pride, laughter and joy.
He will be sorely missed, but impossible to forget. In that there is no doubt.
A private service for family and friends will be held at Holy Cross Church, Eastport. In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory can be made to Holy Cross Church or the Holy Cross Cemetery committee.

My condolences go out to Gloria, Chad, Clinton, and the lucky people who were touched by his life. Clyde was a wonderful man. I am sad to hear of his passing.

I remember food, fun and laughter in his house. So many years ago.

I remember the quarter of moose hanging in the shed. He would shave off thin slices and fry it in a cast iron frying pan with plenty of onions. It was wonderful.

When Clyde would tell a story, he told it with conviction and humility. I don’t know how he did it, but he made everything sound interesting. And it always was.

It’s been over 10 years since I’ve seen Clyde. I have many fond memories of him as I grew up. So many years ago. Fond memories that last.

Gloria,Chad,Clinton and Family,

I was so sad hearing the news of Clyde’s passing.
He was such a wonderful person and was such a joy to be around.
I have so many fond memories visiting your home.
We always had great times together and you both made me always feel so welcome.
Clyde would always have a cooler full of goodies to give me going home. I can hear him now saying: Lin do you like turr, cause I got one here for you along with a bottle of brawn cause I knows you loves that.
He had a heart of gold and loved his family dearly.
Chad and Clinton were his pride and joy and so were his grandchildren. His eyes would light up when he would talk about them.
And Gloria you were his world. You both loved each other so much and I am so Blessed to have had your Friendship.
Clyde will be forever remembered and will be forever in your hearts.
All your wonderful memories will bring you comfort in the days ahead as you reflect on the wonderful life you shared together.
RIP Clyde my Dear Friend. We will see you someday on the Far Side Banks of Jordan. What a Reunion that will be. Until then watch over us all.

Caring Hugs
Linda Baird
