Obituary

John Andrew Moses was born on July 31, 1962 in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.  After moving to Maryland in 1974, John attended Bladensburg High School and completed a course of study in bricklaying as part of their vocational program.  After completing his apprenticeship and two years as journeyman, he obtained his Maryland Class A Commercial Driver's License (CDL) and worked for a brief period of time as an over the road trucker.  John changed jobs in 1989 and landed a job at Domino's Production Facility, starting out on night shift in their sanitation department.  He worked his way up to their Production Department where he has worked for the past 31 years earning numerous awards for his attendance, teamwork and contributions toward meeting production goals.  He always enjoyed talking about his job at Domino's to his family and friends.  John willingly worked extra hours on his days off to help out wherever he could.  He always spoke highly of his coworkers and the management personnel he worked with - he considered Domino's his 'second family'.  John also worked a part time job at an electronics testing company to earn extra money.

In his spare time, John liked working around the house, helping other family members, visiting family members and watching old western TV series and old horror films.  Bonanza and Gunsmoke were his favorite TV series and his favorite horror films were Dracula (Boris Karloff,1931 release), Frankenstein, The Wolfman and Not of This Earth (1957).  He also enjoyed escaping the noise and traffic of the DC area and dreamed of retiring to a place in the country.  John was always the life of the party at any family gathering.  He always brought a smile to every face and it just wasn't the same if he wasn't there.  Everyone tried to plan around John's schedule to make sure he was there.  There are so many memories that we will always treasure about John for many years to come.  When his family and friends get together in the future John will be remembered with fondness knowing that we were honored to have him with us for 58 years.  Even John's doctor said he was one of the nicest patients she ever had the pleasure of meeting.

Several years ago, John visited Saint Mary's Queen of Peace Cemetery in southern Maryland.  He remarked how peaceful and quiet it was and expressed his wishes to be buried there.  It's still a quiet place with lots of farms surrounding it and now John's wish has been fulfilled.  After a life of hard work and good deeds he can now rest in peace.  God bless you John - you will always be missed by our broken hearts.
