It is with a glad heart that Harvey Mosmeyer, 89, has passed from the prison that was his body on Sunday, Aug. 17, 2014. His passing is a blessing for those who believe in a better life after death. He was born June 10, 1925, in McCoy, Texas.

The sadness of parting came several years ago when it was finally realized that our dad and grandfather would never recover to a state of cognition, and the sadness of clinging to life was felt in every visit to his bedside. As our father would say, he “gave it hell.” He would also have said, “If it’s worth doing, do it right.” And he did. Harvey was a man of determination, pride, and love, and he was a spirited idealist. He was always a loving and kind husband to Margaret Nell Roe Mosmeyer, who passed seven years ago. Harvey’s love of humanity caused him to choose a career that enabled him to help others. He retired from 37 years of service in the Texas Rehabilitation Commission, where he was able to change lives daily. He was a teacher, a principal, and a counselor before he began work with TRC. Many a time he would tell stories of how education profited him, and he encouraged everyone to seek the most education possible. It was his greatest desire to see his granddaughters educated, as accordingly they have been.

When he wasn’t working, “Mose” was fishing in the bay, playing pool, gardening, or working on the farm. Born and raised a “hard-headed Dutchman,” he was a rough and tumble athlete, who more than anything enjoyed baseball, and was to pursue a professional career until an unfortunate accident occurred in which he lost a hand. But, as his good friend, Bob Palmer, has often remarked, “He could work harder with one hand than most men with two.” He taught us compassion, individuality, love of nature, perseverance, and to “work like horses and drink like men.” Naturally curious, Dad loved tinkering and projects. Sometimes he took inspiration from his dear old friend, Jose Cuervo. Many a night he, Jose, and Robert Wright would fish until morning and the stories were always good, though not always believable!

We will not miss your body, Dad, but we will miss your spirit and hope that some of that fierce compassion lives on in us. We will never forget the good times, and never regret the hard ones. We take pleasure in knowing that you and Mom can now “live happily ever after,” said his family.

Harvey was preceded in death by his wife, Margaret Nell Roe Mosmeyer; his parents; and a brother.

He is survived by his two children, Dane Harvey Mosmeyer and wife Courtney and Tara Janell Mosmeyer Pratt; his two beautiful granddaughters, Shelby Marie Pratt and Brittany Hayden Pratt; and great-granddaughter, Allison.

A graveside service will be held on Friday, Aug. 22, in the Chamberlain Cemetery in Kingsville.
