George  Moser
George Moser died after a short illness on October 30, 2019 at age 70. George grew up in Comanche, Oklahoma and attended college at the University of Oklahoma where he obtained both a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Political Science. He went on to work for the Oklahoma House of Representatives, where he eventually retired as the Chief of Staff for the Speaker of the House. George enjoyed good food and good company. He was known for his sense of humor, his skill as a cook, and his intelligence. Politics and current events were always very important to him, and even during his last hospitalization, the TV in his room was playing his favorite news channel.

A true renaissance man, George's lively mind and interest in learning nearly everything is evident from his wildly eclectic collection of books. There are books about Judaism, history, how to be a writer, how to draw, reviews of mathematical concepts, how to play chess, how to juggle, and how to play the harmonica (complete with a harmonica that, so far as anyone knows, was never taken out of its package).

George was preceded in death by his parents, George and Dorothy Moser. He is survived by two sisters, Joann and Penny, nieces and nephew Dottie, Micheal and Sarah, a cousin Pam and her children Teresa and John, and three grandchildren whom he loved more than anything: Greyson, Cooper and Carsyn.

Lastly, he leaves behind a son, also named George, who, much to his wife Megan's chagrin, shares his dad's penchant for collecting useless information (and all the "stuff" that goes with it). The trade-off is that he also shares his father's love of, and skill at cooking, as well as his sense of humor.

George wanted to be cremated, and when asked what he'd like done with the ashes, he characteristically shrugged and said "I don't care, dump 'em in your backyard." He did not want a formal service, so the family will be gathering for a private celebration of his life sometime soon. Should anyone wish to honor him, please do so in a way he would have appreciated: gather with family or friends that you care deeply for, enjoy a fantastic meal together, smoke a nice cigar if you're so inclined, and drink a "wee dram of Scotch" as he was fond of saying (or whichever libation you prefer.) If you feel inspired to toast George, it would be an honor if you'd use the words that he gave as his senior quote in either his high school or college yearbook: "Laissez les bons temps rouler," or if your French is rusty: "Let the good times roll!"

George was totally loyal to me the years I served as Speaker of the House. He cared about people in the world and was always a class act! He will be missed!
