John Moseley Obituary

John Edward Moseley was born on October 24, 1941 Birmingham, England and died on May 4, 2023 Cincinnati, Ohio surrounded by loved ones after valiantly and silently fighting stage IV prostate cancer and metastatic melanoma. He is preceded in death by his beloved first wife of 42 years Peggy Ann Moseley nee Groves and his parents Doris Mae and Albert Edward Moseley.

John is survived by his wife Vicki nee Smith Moseley of 17 years, children Anne (Joe) Kowalski, Clare (Bill) Hilbert and Steven (Kelly) Moseley, step children Chris (Alana) Parker and Ben (Nikki) Parker. Grandchildren Ian (Rose) Kowalski, Megan (Frank) Busch, Ben Kowalski, Emma, Ethan and Ellen Hilbert, Jack and Alex Moseley, Maverick and Jovie Parker and Charlie Parker. Great Granddaughter Josie Moseley Busch. Sister Janet (Adrian) Glumart residing in Australia, Sister-in-law and brother-in-law Chris and Derek Giles of England and cousin Elizabeth Mason of England.

John attended York Road Primary School, Hall Green England, from 1947 - 1954 and went on to the best school in Birmingham, King Edwards School for Boys, founded by King Edward V1 in 1552. He graduated from the University of Manchester with a BSc degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1962 and distinguished himself with First Class Honours, which was the only one awarded that year. John continued his education at the Royal Navy School of Architecture. After deciding he did not want to design warships he started with Procter and Gamble in Manchester, England. After 10 years at various sites in the UK his skill set was needed in Cincinnati. He moved his young family to Cincinnati in 1974 and retired in 2002.   

John called both Ascension Lutheran church and House of Joy his church homes. He was Business Manager at Wesley Chapel Mission Center for 10 years and he and Vicki taught their after-school science program for 12 years. John and Vicki held Haiti in their hearts doing mission trips and extended stays so missionary families could come home on furlough. He loved to read and continued to do his Royal Navy morning exercises every day except Sunday. He and Vicki visited every continent and circumnavigated the world three different times. 

In lieu of flowers, John requested donations be made to Doctors Without Borders (, the Cincinnati Freestore Foodbank (, or a charity that touches you.

A celebration of John's life will be at Ascension Lutheran Church, Montgomery at 11 am on Saturday May 27, preceded by a visitation from 9 to 11 am that morning. Live Streaming Link:
