Donald Mosby, Sr. was born to Lloyd and Mable Mosby on July 3, 1931 in Kansas City, Missouri.  Donald was a member of Church of God in Christ.  He later redirected his life and joined Faith Mission Church with his sister, Doris.  He loved the Lord.  He loved watching Jimmy Swaggart live on TV daily.  Donald wanted all people to be saved and believe in the Lord, but he knew that the only person could save was himself.  Donald served in the Army and fought in the Korean War.  He was proud to be a Veteran.  I witnessed him having a conversation with other veterans and it was amazing to be surrounded with I know over 100 years of service; Army, Navy and Marines and all were bragging.  Donald attended a trade school and became a welder and later was promoted as welder at the U.S. Post Office where he retired after 30 years of service.  He invested into Real Estate until retiring recently.  My dad has never asked for anything (maybe a meal) but I am so glad when he needed us, we were there for him.  He will be missed but never forgotten.  He loved his whole entire Mosby Clan. Donald was a brother, Daddy, Uncle and a friend. Love you always and forever.  He leaves to cherish his memories one sister Eunice Dodds of Grandview, MO.  Donald married Beverly Mosby in 1955; to this union five children; Three children; Kathryn Rhodes-Tatum and Yolanda Mosby both of Kansas City, Missouri and Gary (Cynthia) Mosby, Litchfield, AZ.  A host of relatives, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.  Donald was preceded in death by two sons: Donald Mosby, Jr., and Darrell Mosby; parents Lloyd and Mable Mosby; six sisters Alora, Lois, Vera, Doris, Nolene, and Norma; four brothers Lloyd, Kenneth, Marvin and Merle.  Funeral Services will be held at 10:00 A.M. on Saturday, August 24, 2019 at Watkins Heritage Chapel 4000 Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd. Kansas City, Missouri. 64130.  Visitation 9:00 A.M.  Interment will be in Leavenworth National Cemetery.
