Stewart John Mosso, Jr., 90, of Galveston, passed away on March 23, 2017 into the arms of his Lord to be reunited with his beloved wife, Bess.

Johnny was born in Hitchcock to Stewart John Mosso, Sr. and wife, Viola. He was baptized and later married at Sacred Heart Church.  Working on the church with his fellow Knights of Columbus became a passion.  For decades he served as the head usher at 10:30 am mass.  He also made rosaries and donated them to the church.

John followed in his stepfather’s (A. B. Branch) footsteps and served in the Navy during both WWII and the Korean wars. He was assigned to APA#33 troop carrier and operated a landing craft.  He was very proud of his service.

As an electrician by trade, John was a member of the IBEW #527 and recently received his 60-year pin. After spending 33 years in maintenance at UTMB, he retired as superintendent of the electrical department.

John was preceded in death by his father, mother, daughters-in-law, Sandy and Jerilyn, and the love of his life, Bessy Lea. He is survived by his three sons: Jay Mosso, Mark Mosso and his wife, June, and Kirk Mosso.

The family would like to thank all of John’s friends at Libbie’s Place: Pete Rose, Eddie, and John from Hitchcock; Lydia Navarro, who always made him laugh; Chris and Vicki; AJ and the Savages for treating him like family; his niece, Anne; and especially Mary, who always comforted him.

John’s family will receive visitors beginning at 5:00 pm, Friday, March 31, 2017, at Malloy & Son Funeral Home. A rosary will conclude the evening at 7:00 pm.

The funeral mass will be held at 10:00 am, Saturday, April 1, 2017, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church with entombment to follow at Calvary Catholic Mausoleum. At the request of John’s family, please dress casually and comfortably; no suits or sport coats.

Pallbearers will be Neal Monson, John Tomford, Alfonso Sifuentes, Chris Hempil, Anthony Dundee, John C. Trost, with Stewart’s best friend, John F. Trost, serving as honorary pallbearer.

In lieu of flowers, please make memorial donations to Sacred Heart Catholic Church.

I worked with John for many years at UTMB as a draftsman and later as Director of Remodeling and Construction. He always had UTMB's best interests in mind. John was always very helpful to me with projects that involved electrical. I also remember his joking, humor and always talking about his cows. Prayers for the Family.
