William Noah Moser was the eighth of nine children born to Joseph and Rosina Moser. Bill was born on November 2, 1928, in Stevens County Minnesota. Bill was baptized in 1951 and became a member of the Apostolic Christian Church of Morris, Minnesota.
After completing 8th grade, Bill continued farming with family until drafted into the U.S. Army in 1953. Bill served in the U.S. Army from 1953 – 1955 during the end of the Korean Conflict. It was during this time he spent many weekends in Rockville, CT and Croghan, NY. Many friendships were made while attending the Apostolic Christian churches in those areas.
Bill was united in marriage to Jeanette “Joyce” Gleichman from Harper, Kansas on September 23, 1956. They were married for sixty-six years. Following their marriage, they farmed in Stevens County, Minnesota until he retired in 1990. He enjoyed helping on the farm until age 88 when he devoted his full attention to care for his wife.
Bill and Joyce enjoyed traveling, fishing, and spending time with family. Many of these travels were between California and Florida during the harsh Minnesota winters. Deep sea fishing on these trips was a highlight. He could fish in the middle of a snowstorm or during rain or shine.
