George Joseph Augustine Mossey
George Joseph Augustine Mossey, 82, passed peacefully in the loving company of his family in Nashua, NH on January 10, 2021. George was born April 23, 1938 at the Mossey homestead in the East Baltic, Prince Edward Island, Canada. He entered God’s kingdom and was greeted by his parents Peter and Mary Annabelle, his son John, along with his siblings Adelle Kirouac, Ann Fraser, and John Mossey.
George leaves behind his wife Pauline who was by his side every day for 35 years. He will miss his three stepsons Peter and Kathleen Deschenes of Weare NH, Daniel Deschenes and family of Florida and his deceased stepson Mark Deschenes and family.
George leaves behind three children and their spouses from his marriage to Sylvia (Thoreson) Mossey of Milford, NH. They include Richard and Kristine Mossey of Milford, NH, Linda Mossey and Kris Jensen of Milford, NH and Daniel and Nancy Mossey of Port Charlotte, FL. His love and pride for his ten grandchildren and four great-grandchildren will never be forgotten. George will continue to watch over all his kind-hearted nieces and nephews. He had a special place in his heart for his Godchild, Walter (Wally) Mossey of Fitchburg, MA who called daily.
George worked as a laborer in Canada until 1959 when he decided to make America his home. He found complete happiness with his decision to immigrate to America and proudly became a naturalized citizen in 1969. George retired from Beebe Rubber in 2003 after 38 years as a Press Operator.
He was a self-taught musician with an encyclopedia of melodies which included Gospel, Hank Williams, Hank Snow, Slim Whitman, and Johnny Cash songs. He would pull out his guitar for family get-togethers and taught his children those good old songs. His deep timbered voice along with his guitar skills made every ear turn and listen. For years you could find him at the Wilton Candy Store jamming with a circle of musical friends and shared hours of entertainment at the Hunt Home and St. John Newman Church
George was a faithful servant of God and devout Catholic his entire life which was reflected through the love of his family, friends and everyone who knew him. He will be laid to rest in St. Columba Cemetery in P.E.I., Canada on August 21st 2021. An outdoor Celebration of Life will be held at the First Congregational Church of Milford NH on May 22nd at 11am. Family and friends are more than welcome to join us as we pay homage to this humble servant of God.
