Dale Thomas Moseley, 95, passed away Wednesday, Sep 21, 2022. He was born Oct 27, 1926 in Warrens, Wisconsin to Harlan and Floy (Purdy) Moseley. After graduating from Tomah High School, he completed an Agriculture Short Course at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He married the love of his life, Leila H Westpfahl, on May 29, 1948 in Tomah, WI. Their life together started with Dale working on the Moseley Family Farm. In 1953 he started augmenting the farm income by working a few years for the Monroe County Highway Department, followed by employment with Wisconsin Power and Light in Tomah, before accepting a transfer to their new “Nelson Dewey” power generating plant in Cassville, WI in 1959. He worked at the Cassville plant until retiring Sep 17, 1987.
Dale was very active in his community, which included Boy Scout Master, Local 4-H leader, Cassville Lions Club, Knights of Columbus, WIT Travel Club, and served on the Cassville school board for 10 years. Dale’s love of farming remained strong, leading him to acquire land where he developed a “Pick-Your-Own“ strawberries business, along with a small orchard of apple and other fruit trees.
As an accomplished woodworker, Dale enjoyed his free time crafting various pieces of furniture for his family and friends. When the crafting was done, it was time to get “On the Road Again” visiting family, friends, exploring national and state parks, and touring the state capitals of each of our 50 US States. Always ready to lend a helping hand, his generous and kind soul will be missed by everyone who had the honor of knowing him.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Harlan, and Floy (Purdy) Moseley, and numerous in-laws.
Dale is survived by his beloved wife of 74 years, Leila (Westpfahl) Moseley, sons Neil (Claudia), Roy (Pam), daughter Ann (Kerry) Miller, grandchildren Mary, Cara, Matthew, Justin, and Allison, 8 great grandchildren, as well as siblings, Karyl Burnstad, Rex (Janet) Moseley, Armetta Parker, Marlene Richard, brothers-in law Merlin (Irene) Westpfahl, Steve (Patricia) Westpfahl, sisters-in-law Joanne Westpfahl, Cheryl Jaeger, and many loving nieces and nephews.
