Claude Joseph Mosley, 76, passed on Wednesday, February 26, 2020. He was born December 20, 1943 in Jackson, MN to Richard and Clara (Lev) Mosley. On September 24, 1966 he married Judith “Judy” Koenig at Saint Mary Help of Christians Church in St. Augusta, MN. He had a long and accomplished career at IBM in Rochester, MN as an electrical engineer and was a member of St. Pius X Church. In 1994, Claude and Judy settled in La Crescent, MN where he was a member of Church of Crucifixion. In his early retirement, he designed and built their home overlooking the Mississippi River. Here he started his day with a cup of coffee while enjoying the view. He often joked his “job” was to make sure the river was flowing in the right direction. Hobbies included all things automotive (especially Corvettes) as well as dining out with Judy and attending the theater. He was a member of the River City Corvettes in La Crosse, WI. Claude was wonderful and loving to his family and blessed with many life-long friends.

He is survived by his wife Judy of 53 years; daughter Amy (Marcel) Derosier of Arden Hills, MN; son Steven (Krista) Mosley of Blaine, MN; son Chris (Becky) Mosley of Otsego, MN; daughter-in-law Lisa (Richard) Mosley of Carver, MN; grandchildren Amanda (Ben Vallet-Sandre), Mackenzie, Courtney, Henri, Max, Avery, Margot, Lily, Clara and Martin; great grandchildren Mason and Everett; step-grandchildren Evan, Sylvia, Levi and Vivian; former daughter-in-law Angie Mosley of Falcon Heights, MN; brother Gerald Mosley of Wanamingo, MN; sister Joanne Clepper (Richard Torrence) of St. Cloud, MN; sister-in-law Betty Lommel with three nieces of St. Augusta, MN and surrounding area. He was preceded in death by his parents along with his son Richard Mosley and bother-in-law Russell Clepper, III.

The family would like to acknowledge the kindness and generosity of friends and caregivers who supported Claude in his final months. It gave us comfort to know he was cherished by so many. In lieu of flowers, the family prefers memorial donations in memory of Claude to the Mayo Foundation or a charity of your choice.
